Two capsules a day are enough to ensure your intake of this important mineral.

What does calcium do in the body?
Calcium is an important mineral, 90% of which is found in our bones and teeth. The skeleton is a bank of calcium and needs calcium in order to be optimally maintained. When we are kids, we need calcium to build our bones, and already at the age of 35, the degradation of the bone structure begins.
Calcium also contributes to normal muscle and nerve function. Calcium is involved in the muscles’ ability to contract and acts as an antagonist for the mineral magnesium. This property is also reflected in the heart's normal function, as the heart is also a contracting muscle. In addition, calcium is important for the blood's coagulation ability.
However, the regulation of calcium in the body is dependent on the availability of other nutrients, including vitamin D. Healthwell 800 is therefore fortified with vitamin D (5 micrograms per dose) for optimal absorption and utilisation in the body.
