MINERALS PLAY IMPORTANT ROLES IN THE HUMAN BODY and also work as catalysts in thousands of biochemical processes to activate enzymes, hormones and antibodies. To maximise the body’s utilisation of minerals, NeoLife formulas provide related nutrients that help increase their absorption such as vitamin D3 in Kal-Mag Plus D.
Many of us get less than the recommended daily amounts of calcium. However, you need more than just calcium to build strong bones. A lot of people do not get adequate magnesium or enough vitamin D. NeoLife’s exclusive combine the power of calcium with magnesium and vitamin D3.
Calcium, magnesium and vitamin D3 are also critical for several functions in our bodies.
ABSORPTION OF NUTRIENTS CHANGES WITH OUR AGE
How efficient we are at absorbing calcium changes with age. The older we get the less efficient we are. Absorption is as high as 60% in infants and young children , who need substantial amounts of the mineral to build bone. Absorption decreases to 15-20% in adulthood and continues to decrease as people age; this explains the higher recommended calcium intakes for ages above 51 years.
• Calcium and magnesium contribute to normal muscle function .
• Calcium is needed for the maintenance of normal bones and teeth.
• Magnesium and vitamin D contribute to the maintenance of normal bones and teeth.
• Vitamin D contributes to the normal absorption/utilisation of calcium and phosphorus.
Recommended daily intake: 3 tablets per day.
