store calcium, but it can’t produce it. That’s why you must get the calcium you

that affects more than 10 million American adults, of whom 80% are women.
absorption is highest during periods of intense growth, such as childhood and
pregnancy, as rapidly growing bones spur the high demand for the mineral. With
the exception of pregnancy, calcium absorption starts decreasing during
adulthood and continues to decrease with age.
few years after menopause begins mark rapid calcium loss from bones in women.
Estrogen production decreases, which causes more bone breakdown and decreased
calcium absorption from foods and dietary supplements. Recommended calcium
consumption increases for women at age 51, the time menopause typically starts.
You can get Calcium from;
- Dairy products, such as cheese, milk and yogurt.
- Dark green leafy vegetables, such as broccoli

Vitamin D is
a fat-soluble vitamin that helps your body absorb calcium and phosphorus.
Having the right amount of vitamin D, calcium, and phosphorus is important for

must have vitamin D to absorb calcium and promote bone growth. Too little
vitamin D results in soft bones in children (rickets) and fragile, misshapen
bones in adults (osteomalacia). You also need vitamin D for other important
active form as calcitriol, vitamin D contributes to skin cell growth, repair,
and metabolism. It optimizes the skin's immune system and helps destroy free
radicals that can cause premature aging. While the body can produce vitamin D

your body, such as your bones and teeth. It also helps remove calcium from
areas where it shouldn’t be, such as in your arteries and soft tissues.
amounts of vitamin K2 are still under investigation, but it seems likely that
180 to 200 micrograms of vitamin K2 might be enough to activate your body’s
K2-dependent proteins to shuttle calcium to the proper areas.
If you take
oral vitamin D, you also need to take vitamin K2. Vitamin K2 deficiency is
actually what produces the symptoms of vitamin D toxicity, which includes
inappropriate calcification that can lead to hardening of your arteries.
If you take
a calcium supplement, it’s important to maintain the proper balance between
calcium, vitamin K2, vitamin D, and magnesium. Lack of balance between these
nutrients is why calcium supplements have become associated with increased risk
of heart attack and stroke.
