General information about the ingredients used in this supplement product:

(This is NOT product specific and is only listed as educational material)

Calcium in amalgamation with phosphorus and other elements, is indispensable to give strength to bones and teeth. If the dietary intake of calcium is greater than our body’s requirements some of the excess calcium is stored in our bones. When our daily intake of calcium does not meet the requirements, the calcium stored in bone becomes available to meet this shortfall. Vitamin C is a water-soluble organic compound imperative for metabolism. Most animals produce their requirements of vitamin C in their bodies, but humans, apes, and guinea pigs need it in the diet. Vitamin C is indispensable for the prevention of scurvy.

Functions of Calcium and Vitamin C:

Calcium is an essential mineral for humans. Our bones contain large amounts of calcium, which helps to make them solid and rigid. Calcium is also needed for many other tasks including nerve and muscle function and blood clotting. These processes are vital for survival, so as to, when dietary calcium is too low, calcium is taken from bone and used for other critical functions. Vitamin C is essential in collagen synthesis, wound healing, blood-vessel maintenance, and immunity. Some studies have found a moderate benefit of vitamin C in reducing the duration and severity of the common cold. Vitamin C works as an antioxidant in the body and is used as a preservative but it is easily destroyed by oxygen.

Symptoms of Calcium and Vitamin C Deficiency:

Calcium deficiency can cause improper bone mineralization, which may lead to rickets, a condition distinguished by bone deformities and growth retardation. In adults, calcium deficiency may result in osteomalacia, or softening of the bone. Deficiency of vitamin C results in scurvy characterized by seepage of blood from capillaries, subcutaneous bleeding, weakness of muscles, soft, spongy gums and loss of dental cement leading to loss of teeth, and in advanced cases, deep bone pain. A less significant degree of deficiency results in impaired healing of wounds.

Good Food Sources of Calcium and Vitamin C:

Tofu is normally suggested as a good source of calcium other than the dairy products. Sources of well-absorbed calcium for vegans include calcium fortified soy milk and juice, calcium set tofu. Calcium is also present in broccoli and dark green, leafy vegetables, calcium-fortified tofu, soy milk, tempeh, soy yogurt, and cooked soybeans.
