Which is more important: Calcium or Vitamin D? 

If you chose one of the two, you're wrong.  These two nutrients are so linked together in your body's metabolism that one isn't very useful if you don't have  the other.   They are co-dependent: Your body needs both; needs them in proportions that complement each other.

Many people should take higher levels of vitamin D daily (1000 IU to 6000 IU per day).  It has been suggested that low vitamin D may be a factor in chronic pain.  For most persons living in the northern hemisphere it is not possible to make vitamin D from sun exposure from fall until spring because of the angle that the sun penetrates the atmosphere.   Viitamin D supplements should be in the form of D3 because there are tests to measure the vitamin D3 levels in the blood.  Note: our multis, Ultra Vites and Ultra Preventive each contain 1000 IU vitamin D3

This product has 150 IU Vitamin D3 per tablet.  This amount was used because many persons already take a vitamin D supplement. 

Important Reasons to use Calcium 280 and D:
  • Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body and is reported to be  deficient in the diet
  • Vitamin D is also deficient in our diet, particularly in the northern latitudes or if sunscreen is used.

Uses for Calcium with Vitamin D:

According to FDA studies, Calcium is one of the nutrients found to be deficient in the diet.  Up to 2000 mg of calcium is often recommended to persons at risk of or with osteoporosis.   Most authorities often recommend that calcium and magnesium be used together in a 2:1 or 1:1 ratio.

For adults the daily requirement is 800 mg, except that it is 1,200 mg for pregnant and lactating women or postmenopausal women not taking estrogen.
