The mineral salts of calcium have many different functions in the body. The body cannot produce calcium itself. For this reason, the intake of calcium through food, food supplements or medicines is of essential importance. The German Nutrition Society (DGE) recommends a calcium intake of 1,000 to 1,200 mg per day for adolescents and adults1.
Calcium contributes towards a normal muscular function and the preservation of healthy bones as well as teeth. Furthermore, calcium has a function in the energy metabolism, at the blood coagulation and the signal transmission between neurons. Calcium also contributes towards the normal function of digestive enzymes and plays an important role in cell division and specialization.
Calcium can be administered in the form of tablets, effervescent tablets, drinking granules, direct granules, powders, capsules, coated tablets and injection solutions.
