Minerals are earth-derived elements that cannot be produced by living organisms but are important for human health. Minerals are introduced into the food chain by plants which acquire them from the soil. Minerals can be classified into two categories, major minerals and trace minerals. Major minerals, such as calcium, are those found in the body in amounts greater than 5 grams.
Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body. Over 99% of the body’s calcium is found in the bones and teeth where it provides structural support. The remaining 1% of calcium is found in the blood, muscle, and other soft tissues. The recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for calcium is between 1,000 - 1,300 mg/day for adults, depending on age and gender.
Calcium is perhaps best known for its role in building strong bones. In bones and teeth, calcium is found as calcium hydroxyapatite, along with phosphorous, which gives these hard tissues their strength. Bone is a living tissue that undergoes a continuous remodeling process. During normal growth and development, bone formation exceeds bone resorption but this balance may shift with age.
Adequate calcium and vitamin D as part of a healthful diet, along with physical activity, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis later in life. Vitamin D helps develop strong bones and teeth by enhancing the absorption of calcium and phosphorus. Osteoporosis can affect anyone but risk increases with age. Furthermore, the risk of osteoporosis is greatest in White and Asian women of a small frame.
Calcium is one of the most important minerals in your body and as an essential mineral, it is needed every day. However, National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) data reflect adolescents, post-menopausal women, and seniors may be falling short in getting recommended amounts of calcium. In general, women are less likely than men to get adequate amounts of calcium from foods alone.
Dairy products such as milk, yogurt, and cheese are excellent sources of calcium. Calcium is also found in green leafy vegetables but due to the presence of other nutritional factors, it may not be as efficiently absorbed. It has been shown that eating spinach at the same time as milk can reduce the absorption of calcium from the milk. Additional dietary and lifestyle factors may also impact calcium status. High sodium intake, alcohol consumption and caffeine from coffee, tea and soft drinks may increase calcium excretion and/or reduce calcium absorption.
To maximize calcium absorption from supplements, take no more than 500 mg at a time. It is also recommended to take Kirkland Signature™ Calcium Adult Gummies with a meal to help with absorption.
