Pharma Nord Bio-Calcium + D3 + K: Calcium is a vital mineral that adds strength to the bone. Bio-Calcium is intended for those who wish to provide their bones with the recommended amount of calcium and other important nutrients such as vitamin D and K, which are important for effective absorption and utilisation of calcium.
Younger people (30-35years) have what you might call a bone density equilibrium. The amount of bone which is continually lost is built up again, leaving the bone strength unchanged. But around the age of 35, our bones start deteriorating. Initially both men and women lose about 0.3% of their bone density every year, but women soon take over. Post menopausal women lose of further 0.6%, bringing their total loss of bone mass up to approximately 1% year. This difference is the reason why it is so important for women to get plenty of calcium throughout life.
Smoking, drinking, medicine, underweight and lack of physical exercise increases the need for calcium additionally. Calcium cannot be absorbed from the digestive system without vitamin D, which is made in the skin in response to sunlight (vitamin D levels decline with age, and a daily intake of 200-400 IU/day is required). Vitamin K promotes the uptake of calcium into bone tissue.
