Supplement Spot Calcium and Vitamin D Supplement Spot Calcium and Vitamin D Presentation Transcript

  • Supplement Spot Calcium and Vitamin D How They Work Synergistically to Promote Bone Health
  • Calcium and Vitamin D Calcium and Vitamin D are two of the most important things in the development of dense and strong bones. They work synergistically to help increase bone mass. At each age level, the requirement for Calcium and Vitamin D increases as the body requires more of these mineral and vitamin to develop strong bones and to perform other essential functions as well.
  • Calcium Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the human body, of which the body contains approximately 2.5 pounds, and 99% of this is stored in the bones and teeth. The remainder is in the bloodstream and the fluids surrounding the cells. It is an essential mineral with a wide range of biological functions.*
  • Role of Calcium In The Body Calcium is a mineral that helps to build strong bone tissues. It’s essential for blood clotting. It stabilizes blood pressure. It contributes to normal brain function. It’s critical for communicating essential information among cells.
  • Other Non-Bone Functions of Calcium Helps insulin open cells to glucose Is needed for the release of chemicals that transmit a signal from a nerve cell to a target cell (for example, when a nerve tells a muscle to move) Facilitates the actual process of contraction of the muscle cell Assists the movement of sperm into an egg to fertilize the egg
  • Calcium Daily Requirement Newborns to 6 months: 200 milligrams Babies 7-12 months: 260 milligrams Kids 1-3: 700 milligrams Kids 4-8: 1,000 milligrams Kids and teens 9-18: 1,300 milligrams Adults 19-50: 1,000 milligrams Adult men 51-70: 1,000 milligrams Adult women 51-70: 1,200 milligrams All adults 71 and older: 1,200 milligrams Pregnant/breastfeeding women: 1,000 milligrams Pregnant teens: 1,300 milligrams
  • Sources of Calcium Rich sources of Calcium include dairy foods such as milk, cheese, and yogurt plant foods including broccoli, kale, and Chinese cabbage, moringa, spinach, tofu, collard greens, soy beans Seafoods such as sardines, salmon, clams, lobster and crabs
  • Vitamin D Vitamin D (as cholecalciferol) is a fat-soluble vitamin. It is known as the "sunshine" vitamin because it is formed in the body by the action of the sun's ultraviolet rays on the skin. Vitamin D is converted in the kidneys to the hormone calcitrol, which is actually the most active form of Vitamin D. The effects of this hormone are targeted at the intestines and bones.
  • Functions of Vitamin D Vitamin D maintains normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus. Vitamin D aids in the absorption of calcium, thereby helping to form and maintain strong bones. It promotes bone mineralization in concert with a number of other vitamins, minerals, and hormones. Combine Vitamin D with an Omega 3 Fatty Acid for additional bone, joint, and cardiovascular support.*
  • Vitamin D Daily Requirement
  • Sources of Vitamin D Salmon, tuna, sardines, mackerel, and shrimp Egg yolks Beef liver Mushrooms Cod and fish liver oils Foods with added vitamin D, such as milk and some cereals, yogurts, and orange juices
  • Diseases Associated with Low Calcium and Vitamin D (The medical term for low calcium is hypocalcemia) Osteoporosis, brittle bones Numbness or tingling around the mouth or in the feet and hands Muscle spasms in the face, feet, and hands. Depression, memory loss, or hallucinations Chronic and moderate hypocalcemia can result in cataracts (damage to the eyes).
  • Rickets Osteomalcia in adults Paget disease Muscular disorders like tetany Skin disordes like tanning of skin Kidney Stones High Blood Pressure and Heart Attack
