Green made Maxi Cal D, is a nutrional supplement specially formulated to contain elemental calcium 500mg and vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) 400IU.
Calcium is required by the body to develop and maintain healthy bones, muscles, nervous system, and heart. Calcium carbonate is a common supplement people take when they are not receiving enough calcium in their daily diet.
The functions of calcium include the following:
|Building bones and teeth:||Calcium gives bones and teeth strength and hardness. Although bones appear to be rock hard and static, in reality, bone tissue changes constantly as calcium (and other minerals) move in and out – a process called remodeling.|
|Controlling muscle function and maintaining good heartbeat:||Muscle tissue in the heart, require calcium in order to contract and relax normally.|
|Transmitting nerve impulses:||Calcium is needed for a nerve cell to transmit its messages to other nerves or to muscles. In addition, the calcium inside cells transmits messages to special receptors. Some of these messages are instrumental in controlling blood pressure and other body functions.|
|Promoting blood clotting and wound healing:||Calcium is one of fourteen essential factors that are directly involved in the formation of blood clots and start the process of wound healing.|
|Miscellaneous other function:||Acts as a coenzyme in various metabolic activities, controls the permeability of membranes to allow nutrients to pass through cell walls and helps synthesize hormones and enzymes necessary for digestion. Recent research indicates that calcium may also protect against colon cancer.|
