Why Do We Need Calcium?

  • Strong Bones and Teeth: It helps bones grow and stay strong, even as we age.

  • Muscle Power: Calcium controls muscle movements - helps them contract and relax.

  • Clot Control: Important for blood clotting when we get a cut.

  • Other Uses: It helps enzymes do their thing and lowers risks like high blood pressure and cholesterol issues.

Is it true that Calcium alone cant help your bones unless Vitamin D is sufficient? Is there a possible connect? :thinking:

Hi jayshreeonline,

Thank you for raising this important question about bone health. It’s true that calcium alone may not be sufficient for optimal bone health without adequate levels of vitamin D. You need a bunch of other vitamins and minerals too. But vitamin D plays a crucial role in helping the body absorb calcium, which is essential for building and maintaining strong bones. Without enough vitamin D, calcium absorption may be compromised, potentially affecting bone density and overall bone health. Therefore, ensuring sufficient intake of both calcium and vitamin D is important for promoting strong and healthy bones. As always, we advise seeking the assistance of medical professionals for specific guidance on preserving bone health.
