Calcium and vitamin D3 are essential for healthy bones, teeth, heart, nerves, muscles, immune system, and cell growth. Recent research has shown that people with autoimmune diseases (rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, scleroderma) and fibromyalgia are often deficient in calcium and vitamin D3.
Calcium is an acid reducer that removes up to 95% of the acid in food and drinks which helps decrease digestive discomfort, bladder irritation and pain caused by acidic food and drinks.
Calcium is involved in several steps of the body’s blood clotting mechanism, regulates fluid passage through cell membranes, and affects the regulation of nerve impulses and muscle contractions. It has also been shown to help reduce hypertension by normalizing intra-cellular calcium.
Vitamin D3 works synergistically to enhance the absorption of calcium and is required for the regulation of the minerals calcium and phosphorus found in the body. It also plays an important role in maintaining proper bone structure and is also used for treating weak bones (osteoporosis), bone pain (osteomalacia) preventing falls and fractures in people and tooth and gum disease
Physical activity and adequate intake of calcium and vitamin D3 throughout life, as part of a well-balanced diet, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis.
Some people use vitamin D for skin conditions including vitiligo, scleroderma, psoriasis, actinic keratosis, and lupus vulgaris.
