Rm Calcium Vit D

Description

This product contains NO wheat, yeast, soy, egg, gluten, alfalfa, shellfish, peanuts, dairy or corn allergens, and no salt, sugar, starch, wax, artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. It contains vitamin D as a synergist with very important role in the organism.

The major role of Calcium in the body is the regulation of cell membrane, body fluid, cell division, hormone secretion.

The functions of Calcium are very important in the following human physiology systems:

Circulatory –

excites the heart, constricts small blood vessels

Excretory –

inhibits water loss

Digestive –

in excess, is constipating

Nervous –

slows nerve impulse transmission

Reproductive –

required for normal cell division

Endocrine –

inhibits release of thyroid-releasing and other pituitary hormones

Blood –

stimulates blood formation and is required for blood clotting

Muscular –

reduces muscular irritability and contractibility

Skeletal –

main component of bone

Metabolic –

required for phosphorus metabolism and energy production in the Krebs cycle

Detoxification –

inhibits uptake of lead, antagonizes cadmium

Cellular –

decreases permeability of cells to sodium and potassium ions

The basic reasons to use Calcium as supplement are the following:

  • a low calcium level usually means calcium is being lost in the urine
  • associated with fast oxidation rate – alarm stage of stress
  • often associated with copper deficiency

The major role of vitamin D in this product is to facilitate the intestinal absorption of calcium by mediating active calcium transport across the intestinal mucosa. Vitamin D acts in this system by both genomic and nongenomic mechanisms.

Without sufficient vitamin D, bones can become thin, brittle, or misshapen. Vitamin D sufficiency prevents rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults. Vitamin D has other roles in the body, including modulation of cell growth, neuromuscular and immune function, and reduction of inflammation.
