Calcium: Everyone needs it.
Calcium is an important nutrient that builds strong teeth and bones and protects against osteoporosis. Research shows that calcium also helps control blood pressure and may help reduce the risk of colon cancer, according to the American Dietetic Association. It also could help you keep off excess weight.
Key organs and bodily functions depend on calcium to operate at their best. That’s why health experts recommend a calcium supplement if you don’t get enough calcium in your average diet. But with so many options out there – with or without additional nutrients- it’s easy to become overwhelmed.
One thing to consider when choosing how to get your calcium is that pills are often very large and uncomfortable to swallow. The good news is that pills aren’t your only alternative to the recommended low-fat milk, cheese and yogurt.
A novel approach to satisfying your body’s need for calcium is now being provided by Mosaic Nutraceuticals, a Dallas- based natural supplement company. Mosaic has developed a premium calcium supplement that is easier to take – in the form of soft, caramel-flavored candies. Containing vitamin D and vitamin K, also vital nutrients in the absorption of calcium, these soft candy chews are not only good for you, but fun to take and great-tasting, too, according to the company.
