Vitamin D3 works to support bone mineral density and helps with the absorption of calcium.
Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body, and approximately 99% of the body’s calcium exists in the bones.
The major function of calcium is building and maintaining bones and teeth. Calcium is also involved in various metabolic roles.
Vitamin D is essential for the absorption and utilization of calcium.
Deficiency of vitamin D results in lack of bone strength and density, and joint pain. Women’s calcium requirements are increased after menopause as levels of oestrogen decline resulting in decreased calcium absorption.
