Desert Harvest Calcium & Vitamin D (90 Capsules)
Calcium and vitamin D3 are essential for healthy bones, teeth, heart, nerves, muscles, immune system, and cell growth. Calcium is involved in several steps of the body's blood clotting mechanism; it also regulates fluid passage through cell membranes, and affects the regulation of nerve impulses and muscle contractions. It can help to reduce hypertension by normalising intracellular electrolyte balance.
Vitamin D3 strengthens the immune system and controls cell growth. Taking vitamin D3 may reduce the incidence of certain cancers, including ovary, breast and colon cancer, by as much as 50%. Numerous studies have linked Vitamin D3 intake to reduced risk and prevalence of multiple sclerosis. This association was found specifically in women. It isn't clear how vitamin D3 helps the body resist MS, but experimental research suggests that brain white matter is responsive to the vitamin. Additionally, vitamin D3 enhances the absorption of calcium.
Alongside physical activity and a well-balanced diet, calcium and vitamin D3 may reduce the risk of osteoporosis. Recent research has shown that people with autoimmune diseases (rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, scleroderma) and fibromyalgia are often deficient in calcium and vitamin D3.
Calcium carbonate raises the pH of foods and beverages, which may help to relieve bladder pain or digestive discomfort triggered by dietary acid. The addition of organic, super-concentrated aloe vera may help with the absorption of the calcium and the vitamin D3, while if Desert Harvest’s plain aloe vera capsules bother your stomach (which is very unlikely!), taking one of these alongside often helps.
