What is Swanson Calcium Citrate with Vitamin D?
Ever since we were young, we all knew that we had to finish our milk or we'd end up with brittle bones. Any time we suffered a broken arm or leg, our parents would duly inform us that it was because we weren't getting enough calcium in our diets - how right they may have been.
As it happens though, there were other factors in play. Calcium and Vitamin D are both just as important as one another when it comes to keeping our bones strong and dense as we grow up (especially as we enter older age).
When you hear that around 99% of our body's calcium supply goes towards maintaining strong and healthy bones, it's hard to imagine that last 1% doing much useful. The truth is though that even in tiny amounts this useful mineral can do great good. Calcium is also crucial for helping our blood clot, our muscles contract and even sending important messages between our nerves.
Every single day, our bodies hemorrhage calcium through our growing skin, nails, hair, sweat, urine and faeces. Crucially, it cannot be re-synthesised internally either, so we have to make sure that we get plenty from our diets. When we don't get it from our diet, our body steals it from our bones. This can lead to serious conditions like osteoporosis in the long term.
Swanson Calcium Citrate with Vitamin D resupplies that stock with the vital addition of Vitamin D to ensure we keep our bones fortified and healthy.
What is Swanson Calcium Citrate with Vitamin D used for?
Without the addition of Vitamin D, we open ourselves up to to lowered bone density and more brittle bone formation. So where do we normally get this vital vitamin from?
Well, ordinarily we get it from the sun. Your skin makes it from the UVB rays in sunlight. Once produced, it can be stored in your body until later. Unfortunately, the amount of Vitamin D produced by your body depends on the time of year and prevalence of sunshine in your area.
