Calcium is a major mineral best known for its role in building and maintaining strong, healthy bones and teeth. Calcium, however, also transports nutrients across cell membranes; produces hormones and enzymes involved in digestion and metabolism; is involved in nerve cell communication; promotes blood clotting and wound healing; and assists with muscle contractions. Mega Cal™ Calcium 650 mg with Vitamin D is formulated with premium-grade, bioavailable Vitamin D3, the same natural form the body produces when skin is exposed to sunlight. Calcium and Vitamin D are a classic combination for anyone looking to support bone health and ensure optimal absorption. This formula offers 400 IU of premium Vitamin D in addition to 650 mg of elemental calcium- the highest potency available in a single source. Just two Mega Cal™ servings meet the daily calcium requirements to support strong bones, healthy teeth, prevent osteoporosis, reduce high blood pressure relieve PMS symptoms. Calcium also fights insomnia and supports colon health.
