Blackmores Cal-D provides the daily dose of calcium and vitamin D3 to support healthy bones, in an easy to swallow tablet.
Both calcium and vitamin D are essential for maintaining healthy bones. Many New Zealanders don’t consume the recommended dietary intake of calcium. The estimated prevalence of inadequate calcium intake is 20 per cent. A significant number of New Zealanders are also at risk of low vitamin D.Peak bone mass is achieved by age 30 and from the age of 40 onwards there is a gradual decline in bone mass, with the biggest decline taking place within 5 years after menopause. Reduced bone mass with weak and fragile bones affects both women and men in New Zealand. 56% of women and 29% of men will suffer a fracture after the age of 60 and more than 3000 New Zealanders break a hip each year.Adequate vitamin D is essential for calcium absorption.Low levels of vitamin D are associated with reduced calcium absorption and falls in the elderly. Adequate vitamin D supports calcium absorption, normal bone development and remodeling. Scientific studies support a combination of calcium and vitamin D to support healthy bones, bone density and also to support stability in the elderly.Many New Zealanders don’t consume the RDI of calcium.
The adult RDI for calcium is 1000 mg/d which increases to 1300 for women from the age of 51 and men from the age of 71.Approximately 75% of women aged 45-65 years consume less than 1000 mg of calcium a day.Approximately 50% of men aged 45-64 consume less than 1000 mg of calcium a day.The average intake for men over 65 is 795 mg a day.
Take 1 easy swallow tablet twice a day with meals, or as professionally prescribed.
Consult your healthcare professional before use if you have had renal calculi (kidney stones). Calcium and vitamin D may increase the risk of recurrence of renal calculi.
