Our bodies contain about 1kg of calcium. Almost 99% of the body's calcium is found in the bones and teeth where its primary role is
structural. Calcium is needed for the maintenance of normal bones and teeth whilst vitamin D contributes to normal absorption and
utilisation of calcium and phosphorus. There are several different forms of calcium yet our healthcare professionals insist on using
calcium from milk which is regarded as the reference calcium plus calcium carbonate as it has the highest yield of pure elemental
calcium of them all. Thus lactical contains two types of calcium.
Magnesium is one of the most important and abundant minerals found in the body, with 50%-65% of the body's supply residing in bones.
Magnesium plays a number of important roles in the body including contributing to the maintenance of normal bones and teeth and helping
the body convert food into energy. It also helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function.
Vitamin D has many functions within the body including its contribution to maintenance of normal bones, teeth and muscle function.
As we age, we are thought to be more at risk of vitamin D deficiency because our skin's ability to convert vitamin D into its active form
decreases. In lactical we only use vitamin D3 as this is the form of vitamin D that is made in the body.
