- Support for bone health
Functions and Mechanism of Action
The adult human body contains approximately 1 to 2 percent calcium, about 99% of which is present in the skeleton. Bone is constantly turning over, a continuous process of formation and resorption.
In children and adolescents, the rate of bone mineral formation predominates over the rate of resorption. In later life, resorption predominates over formation.
Therefore, in normal aging, there is a gradual loss of bone. Calcium citrate provides a highly beneficial source of dietary calcium that assists in the maintenance of healthy bone structure and function.
In addition, calcium is essential to maintain and perform cellular signaling in many physiological functions, including muscle contraction, neuronal excitability, and cell growth.
