CALCIUM CARBONATE

Product No. P0302

Calcium is a mineral that is found naturally in foods, and is the fifth most abundant element in the body.

Calcium is an important structural component of bone and teeth, and is necessary for the normal function of all muscles (skeletal, heart, and smooth muscles) and nerves, as well as the normal clotting of blood. Prolonged, inadequate intake of calcium causes weak bones (osteoporosis).

Products containing calcium carbonate are used to increase the intake of calcium in individuals whose normal diets are low in calcium. Calcium carbonate products contain 40% calcium (absorbable calcium). Calcium can also bind to other minerals (such as phosphate) and aid in their removal from the body.
