  • Calcium citrate supplements help prevent low blood calcium levels, when the diet does not contain enough calcium. Low calcium or hypocalcemia is characterised by neuromuscular irritability, muscle cramps, numbness or tingling sensation in the toes and fingers, confusion, and depression.
  • Calcium is critical in the formation of strong bones and teeth. Up to 99% of the body’s calcium is stored in the bones and teeth, to prevent bone loss and dental caries. Low levels of this mineral in the bones lead to osteoporosis, a condition when the bones become porous and more to fractures. Calcium citrate supplements are recommended to support bone health for older women, who are more prone to osteoporosis and bone loss.
  • It supports weight control. According to studies, calcium from supplements binds to fats in the digestive tract to prevent absorption and facilitate elimination. Fats are then excreted to the feces, preventing fat deposits into the arms, legs, and abdomen. It also reduces the cholesterol that goes into the bloodstream and prevents hypercholesterolemia.
  • It plays a very important role in proper nerve transmission and overall nervous system health. In the brain, calcium regulates the release of neurotransmitters, chemicals that influence the activities and interaction of brain cells. Low levels of calcium in the brain disrupt the activities of brain cells, such as muscle response to nerve stimulation.
  • Calcium is needed for the absorption and utilisation of iron. Iron is the mineral that helps the blood in transporting oxygen into the cells for nourishment. Low blood levels of iron can lead to anemia.

Nature’s Way Calcium Citrate is a supplemental source of calcium with a blend of citrate, malate, and carbonate for maximum absorption and utilisation. It is formulated to ensure healthy calcium levels in the blood to prevent hypocalcemia. Taking Calcium Citrate supplements are recommended when the diet is not enough to supply the body’s needs. Calcium-rich foods include milk, dairy products, leafy greens, oranges, nuts, and more. The body needs large amounts of calcium, for the bones, brain, nerves, muscles, blood vessels, and heart. Most (up to 99%) of the calcium in the body is responsible for the mineralisation of bones and teeth, keeping them strong. The rest is needed for nerve transmission, muscle movements, blood vessel contraction and dilation, and also blood pressure control. Deficiency in calcium leads to osteoporosis, dental caries, high blood pressure, obesity, muscle cramps, and nerve irritability.
