The absorption of calcium takes place in the duodenum, (small intestine) and ceases in the lower part of the intestinal tract when its food content becomes too alkaline. Like all other vitamins and minerals, calcium relies on the presence of other vitamins and minerals to assist with absorption.
What does Calcium do?
Calcium and phosphorous work together for healthy bones and teeth.
Calcium and magnesium work together for cardiovascular health and bone formation. The balance of these two minerals is crucial and is reflected in their effect on muscles.
To function properly, calcium must be accompanied by magnesium, phosphorous and vitamins A,C,D and E.
Vitamin D helps absorb calcium into the body. Vitamin D works with the parathyroid hormone to regulate the amount of calcium in the blood.
Calcium plays a role in normal nerve and muscle function.
