Cal O Bite Chewable Calcium by Dee Cee Labs - 120 Wafers

Chocolate Flavored Chewable Calcium and Magnesium with Vitamin D

Benefits of Calcium

Calcium is absorbed in the small intestine; this process is dependent on vitamin D. To provide the rigid structure of the skeleton calcium is vital, around about 3lb of the bodys weight is calcium, 99 per cent being in the teeth and bones. It is important in growing children to help bones grow and the elderly as the ability to absorb calcium becomes impaired with age.

Together with magnesium it is needed for nerves and muscles to function properly. It also helps to maintain the right acid/alkaline balance and blood to clot. An adult needs a daily calcium intake of between 700 and 1000mg. Those at risk of osteoporosis may need as much as 1500mg a day. This protection is boosted when combined with linoleic acid from evening primrose oil.

Calcium and phosphorus work together on a ratio of two to one for healthy teeth and bones and calcium and magnesium work together for cardiovascular health. The two most deficient minerals in a womans diet are calcium and iron. Calcium supplements have shown to protect against pre-eclampsia which is high blood pressure in pregnancy. It is a good idea to increase calcium consumption during the last three months of pregnancy and the first few months of lactation to ensure that the baby get sufficient amount of calcium to help bone development and growth. If the baby doesnt get enough calcium from its mother, it will be withdrawn from the mothers bones, possibly leading to bone disease in the future.

Calcium like sodium and potassium contribute to both extracellular and intracellular cell environment. Calcium is also needed as intercellular cement to keep the cells of the body together. It also controls fluid to allow enzyme reaction to take place. Calcium is vital for the contraction of muscle. The brain sends nerve impulses that release calcium in the muscle which triggers muscle reactions. Calcium also helps to control cholesterol. Calcium helps in the process of secretion, bile, pancreatic fluid, gastric, intestinal, hormonal and mucous all rely on calcium to move the small droplets through the cells boundaries and cell walls.

Signs of Calcium Deficiency

Signs of calcium deficiency are rickets, osteomalacia and osteoporosis.

This chocolate flavored chewable calcium supplement is made in America to assure quality and purity.

Really tasty! December 16, 2009
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from PAWTUCKET, RI United States  
I'm pleasantly surprised that this calcium supplement does not taste like chalk at all :)). I highly recommend this product and will be buying it again in the future.

Finally a Chewable Calcium Supplement I Like! January 4, 2009
Reviewer: Rosetta Barker from San Francisco, California  
I've had a hard time finding a chewable calcium supplement that didn't taste like chalk. I love Cal-O-Bites...

I'm very pleased that the Cal-O-Bites also contain magnesium and vitamin D. I gave it 4 stars because I wish it also came in vanilla.
