Calcium Supplements

Calcium supplements from Pharma Nord contain calcium, vitamin D3, K1 and K2. Bio-Calcium + D3 + K1 + K2 uses a high percentage of elemental calcium in an easily absorbed form. Calcium and vitamin D contribute to the maintenance of normal bone in adults and the growth of bone in children. Older adults, in particular women around menopause, should have a daily intake of calcium to counteract the loss of bone mass which occurs in later life. Whilst young people need to build up strong bones at an early age.

Vitamin K helps support normal bone as well as contributing to normal blood clotting. Vitamin D also contributes to normal absorption of calcium and helps support normal blood calcium concentrations.

Bio-Calcium + D3 + K1 + K2 uses a high percentage of elemental calcium in an easily absorbed form

Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the human body, of which our bones and teeth store 99%. The remaining 1% present is in the blood and other bodily tissues. Our skeleton acts as a reservoir for calcium therefore our bones become depleted if our calcium intake is insufficient.

Calcium cannot be absorbed from the digestive system without vitamin D. Our bodies produce vitamin D when UV rays hit the skin; however, our bodies ability to produce vitamin D reduces with age. Vitamin K1 and K2 promote the uptake of calcium into bone tissue.

Calcium supplements are available in a variety of chemical forms, such as carbonate and gluconate. The elemental calcium provided varies with chemical form, e.g. calcium carbonate provides 40% elemental calcium, whereas calcium gluconate provides only 9% elemental calcium.

Bio-Calcium + D3 + K1 + K2

Our Calcium tablets each contain 500mg of calcium (as calcium malate and calcium carbonate) giving an optimal balance of elemental calcium and bioavailability.

The bones consist of living tissue that is constantly being replaced. The bone-forming cells are called osteoblasts and the bone-degrading cells are called osteoclasts. As bone tissue also functions as the body's calcium storage facility, it is particularly important that we absorb sufficient calcium in the bones. If the body gets too little calcium, the osteoclasts are activated which breaks down bone tissue to cover the body's need for calcium.

We recommend 1-3 calcium tablets per day, chewed or swallowed whole, or as directed by a physician.

Our Calcium supplements are also suitable for vegetarians.

Calcium supplements may interfere with the action of the calcium blocking drug Verapamil.

High intakes of calcium (more than 2500mg per day) can potentially cause gastrointestinal disturbance and the formation of kidney stones in certain individuals. Excessive calcium may also interfere with the absorption of zinc, magnesium, and iron.

Customers with thyroid or kidney disease should take caution when taking calcium tablets.

Relative to the food we eat, the size of individual nutrients are actually incredibly small. As a result, we need to use units other than grammes (g) to describe them. Here's what the common units for nutrients are:

Grammes (G)- often used to describe nutritional powders. Most teaspoons of powder weigh approximately 5g.

Milligrams (Mg)- 1000mg is equal to 1g

Micrograms (Mcg or μg)- 1000μg is equal to 1mg

International Units (IU)- Slightly more complex than milligrams (mg) and micrograms (μg), International Units measure differently from nutrient to nutrient. The most common nutrients that are likely to be measured in IU are vitamins D, E and A.

  • Vitamin D: 1 IU is the equivalent of 0.025 μg of D2 or D3
  • Vitamin A: 1 IU is the equivalent of 0.3 mcg retinol
  • Beta-carotene (provitamin A): 1 IU is the equivalent of 0.6 μg of beta carotene
  • Vitamin E: 1 IU is the equivalent of 0.67 mg d-alpha-tocopherol
