Kirkland Signature Calcium 600 mg. with Vitamin D3, 500 Tablets
Kirkland Signature Calcium 600 mg with Vitamin D3 is an important part of your daily regimen. Taking one tablet two times a day with a meal provides a daily intake of 1200 mg of calcium and 20 mcg (800 IU) of Vitamin D3. Calcium is a key mineral that supports many functions in the body. Vitamin D supports the action of calcium, so they work synergistically:
• For strong bones and teeth†
• With Vitamin D assisting in the absorption of calcium†
Adequate calcium and vitamin D, as part of a balanced diet along with physical activity may reduce the risk of osteoporosis later in life.
Of all the minerals, Calcium ranks among the highest in terms of quantity in the body. While calcium supports a variety of functions in the body, such as muscle contraction, one of its most important jobs is to give structure and integrity to bones and teeth. In fact, calcium is pulled in and out of bones during normal processes.
Bone health is a sum of several factors including genetics, environment, life-style and nutrition. Calcium is just one ingredient in the “recipe” for healthy bones. Vitamin D is another nutrient that is important because it helps with calcium absorption, so calcium has a better chance of getting where it needs to go.
Calcium is better absorbed when taken with food. Also, when you split the dose—1 tablet twice a day rather than all at once---the calcium has an even better chance of being absorbed. And, we added vitamin D to our formulation to further help with absorption.
While calcium is important at all stages of life, Kirkland Signature Calcium 600 mg with Vitamin D3 is intended for adults.
