- Supports Healthy Bones and Teeth
Calcium is an essential mineral in the maintenance of healthy bones and teeth. Regular exercise and a healthy diet with enough calcium helps teen and young adult women, who are at risk of osteoporosis later in life, maintain good bone health and may reduce their risk of osteoporosis. (Caucasian and Asian women are particularly at risk for osteoporosis.) Adequate calcium intake is important, but daily intakes above 2,000 mg are not likely to provide any additional benefit.
Vitamin D regulates the absorption of calcium and phosphorus and helps form tooth and bone.
