One out of two women, and one in four men will be diagnosed with osteoporosis in their lifetime. Getting the recommended amount of calcium, vitamin D, combined with regular weight-bearing exercise may help prevent osteoporosis.
Building strong bones begins early. The majority of bone-building occurs in children between the ages of 9 and 18. The more calcium stored in the teen years, the greater the bone mass as an adult. You are never too young or too old to improve your bone health!
Calcium is essential for building strong bones and teeth, and supporting healthy blood pressure, muscle movement and nerve transmission. The National Institutes of Health and the Surgeon General recommend that everyone should consume calcium and vitamin D throughout life to build and maintain bone health.
The good news is that you are never too old or too young to improve your bone health. At all ages, a diet with enough calcium and vitamin D, together with weight-bearing physical activity every day, can prevent problems later.*
Calcium carbonate has been shown to be readily absorbed by the body when paired with vitamin D. According to a March 2017 Harvard Medical School article, calcium carbonate has the highest amount of elemental calcium and is best when taken with food. Adora® Calcium Supplements deliver nearly 500mg of calcium carbonate, with 500 IU of vitamin D in each disk.
Vitamin D helps your body absorb calcium. Studies show that the combination of calcium and vitamin D helps prevent bone fractures in women and men of all ages. Vitamin D may help with muscle strength, protect against cancer and type 2 diabetes according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Research also indicates it may enhance the immune system.
Adora® Calcium Supplements are made with vitamin D3 because recent studies suggest that vitamin D3 could be three times more effective than vitamin D2.
Approximately 24% of Americans are considered at risk of inadequate vitamin D with an additional 8% at risk of deficiency. Vitamin D deficiency may contribute to health risks and disease.
Vitamin D with calcium helps protect older adults from osteoporosis.
