Webber Naturals Calcium with Vitamin D3, 600 mg/400 IU, 90 Liquid Softgels
Worried about osteoporosis, yet having a hard time swallowing those big calcium pills? New Calcium with Vitamin D, Liquid Softgels from webber naturals make it easy to get meaningful amounts of these two important nutrients.
Calcium and vitamin D3 work in tandem to keep our bones strong throughout life. Not only does calcium support heart, muscles and nerve function, it also helps prevent and even treat osteoporosis. Studies show that low calcium intake is associated with low bone mass and increased fractures. It is well-known that vitamin D stimulates the body’s absorption of calcium. Vitamin D supplementation alone, and in combination with calcium, has been shown to prevent osteoporosis and hip fracture risk.
However, many find it difficult to get enough calcium in their diet or to take calcium pills, putting themselves at risk for deficiency. New Calcium with Vitamin D3 from webber naturals comes in a liquid softgel — a superior delivery system for these important nutrients. Meaningful amounts of calcium and vitamin D3 (600 mg calcium/400 IU vitamin D3 per softgel) are delivered in liquid state and ready for the body to absorb. This easy-to-swallow, rapid dissolve softgel is a convenient way to help maintain healthy calcium and vitamin D levels for strong bones throughout life.
Research in Brief
Both calcium and vitamin D are foundation nutrients for building better bones. Calcium with Vitamin D, Liquid Softgel from webber naturals, helps maintain healthy levels of these important bone-building nutrients. Each small, easy-to-swallow softgel delivers 600 mg of calcium carbonate and 400 IUs of vitamin D3!
In a two-year study, 214 perimenopausal women received either 1,000 or 2,000 mg of calcium. While the control group lost 3.2% of their bone density of their spine, the calcium-treated groups increased bone density by 1.6% (there was no difference between the two calcium groups). These results highlight the importance of calcium supplementation prior to menopause in the battle against osteoporosis. “The decrease in lumbar bone loss in these supplemented premenopausal and early perimenopausal women remained statistically significant in the second and third years of supplementation.”
Although calcium is a key mineral for maintaining bone health, studies that combined vitamin D with calcium produced slightly better results in increasing bone density and reducing hip fractures.
