Children's Fruit Calcium
Product DescriptionEasy, convenient, and delicious. Prevent osteoporosis -- just two chewable fruit calcium tablets contain your daily dose of calcium, helping you maintain bone density.
Calcium is the mineral in your body that makes up your bones and keeps them strong. Ninety-nine percent of the calcium in your body is stored in your bones and teeth. The remaining 1% is in your blood and soft tissues and is essential for life and health. Without this tiny 1% of calcium, your muscles wouldn?t contract correctly, your blood wouldn?t clot and your nerves wouldn?t carry messages. It is mainly the calcium in your diet that spares, or protects, the calcium in your bones. If you don?t get enough calcium from the food you eat, your body automatically takes the calcium you need from your bones. If your body continues to tear down more bone than it replaces over a period of years to get calcium, your bones become weak and break easily. This leads to the crippling bone disease called "osteoporosis." Approximately 25 million American women have some degree of osteoporosis; the disease will affect one-third to one-half of post- menopausal women, and 5 million American men suffer from osteoporosis.
