Lifestream Natural Calcium is produced from an organic sea vegetable called Lithothamnium calcareum and demonstrates advanced bioavailability of calcium and other important co-factor minerals, including boron, magnesium, zinc, copper, iodine and sulphur.
Calcium is one of the most essential and important minerals in our body. It is used by almost every cell in the body including bones, teeth, the heart and nerves. Calcium is necessary for muscle contraction and for the development and maintenance of bone structure. Although we imagine our bones are permanent, they are actually being constantly renewed throughout our life and replaced with bone tissue. In fact, our entire skeleton is renewed approximately every seven years. If we do not consume enough calcium in our diet, our body takes the necessary calcium from our bones to use for other essential functions. This can result in brittle or porous bones, broken bones, low bone density and weakness - especially in later life.
