Growing bodies need good nutrition for optimal health. Throughout adolescence, all body systems develop and depend on vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients to supply necessary building blocks. A deficiency of one nutrient can lead to life-long consequences. Calcium is a particularly important mineral for children.
Calcium is one of the most abundant minerals in the body. During childhood and adolescence, calcium is used to build strong bones and teeth. Additionally, calcium is an important factor in proper muscle contraction, the transmission of messages through nerves, and the release of hormones. Getting sufficient levels of calcium during these formative years is important for several reasons. First, getting sufficient calcium during the preadolescent years can reduce the risk of developing osteoporosis later in life. Second, if the amount of calcium consumed is too little, the body will pull calcium from the bones to support proper cell function, resulting in weaker bones. Children’s diets today often lack adequate calcium. Milk is a prime source of calcium. Each day children ages one to three need about two glasses of milk, children ages four to eight need about three glasses, and children ages nine to eighteen need four glasses. For children who will not or cannot drink milk, other calcium sources include broccoli, oatmeal, and fortified orange juice. Still, many kids are picky eaters and tend not to get enough calcium. In addition, high levels of caffeine and phosphates in soda can further deplete calcium. Vitabase Kid’s Calcium provides a convenient way to improve your child’s calcium intake. Orange-flavored chewable tablets provide an important part of each day’s needs. Calcium citrate is the most easily absorbed form of calcium.
To improve absorption of calcium, each tablet includes vitamin D. Magnesium is also added because it improves the body’s ability to absorb calcium and helps regulate calcium levels in the cells. In addition, magnesium is important for every organ but especially the heart, muscles, and kidneys.
While Vitabase Kid’s Calcium can help meet your child’s need for calcium to build strong bones, it is important to make sure children are getting a well-balanced diet. Equally important for bone development is physical activity. Weight-bearing exercise contributes significantly to bone health.
