Schiff Super Calcium supplement combines both 1200 mg of calcium carbonate and 800 IU of Vitamin D3 to promote overall bone and teeth health and healthy muscle, nerve, hormone and enzyme function.
Calcium is vital for building strong bones and teeth. Calcium is also needed for muscle function, nerve function, release of hormones and to help the function of many enzymes. Vitamin D regulates the absorption of calcium.
Regular exercise and healthy diet with enough calcium helps teen and young adult women, who are at risk of osteoporosis later in life, maintain good bone health and may reduce their risk of osteoporosis (white and Asian women are particularly at risk for osteoporosis). Adequate Calcium intake is important, but daily intakes above 2,000 mg are not likely to provide any additional benefit.
