We are active every day: we walk, run and work, and our body is involved in all of these activities. Many factors are responsible for this. But in most cases our bones also give us the unnoticed support for this purpose.
Calcium is the main constituent of the skeleton and ensures its stability. But this mineral is continually excreted from the body …
Calcium (Ca) is a mineral essential for humans. The calcium content of the human body is about 1,000 to 1,300 grams among adults. Roughly 99 % of the total calcium content in the body is found in the bones and teeth.
Calcium is an essential component of the skeleton and provides a contribution towards the normal preservation of bones and teeth. Since the bones are constantly rebuilding, but calcium cannot be formed by the body itself, it must be sufficiently and regularly supplied via the food intake.
It is well known that milk and milk products are good suppliers of calcium for people of any age.
It has been known for a long time that vitamin D contributes to normal bone preservation as a “calcium integration helper”. You should also be mindful of an adequate intake of vitamin D. The body can produce vitamin D itself through the regular exposure of sunlight on the kin. But this self-production is often not enough in our latitudes. Particularly in the autumn and winter months the body develops less vitamin D.
Vitamin D is only found in significant quantities in a few foodstuffs such as fish or liver.
