Description

Helps to reduce the risk of osteoporosis and its consequences - weak, brittle bones and stooped posture.

Blackmores Bio Calcium contains vitamin D3 to facilitate uptake by the body.

Chewable tablets with natural peppermint flavour

Dairy-free formula

Supplementation with calcium and vitamin D helps to maintain calcium stores in the body. Calcium is responsible for much of the strength of bones and teeth, and also plays an important role in a variety of body processes, including muscle and nerve functioning and iron metabolism.

If dietary calcium is low, the body may take the calcium it needs from the bones, leading to brittle bones and possibly osteoporosis (a reduction in bone density). Vitamin D helps maintain serum calcium and phosphate levels and increases the active absorption of calcium ions in the intestine to increase mineralisation of bone.
