Calcium

Calcium is one of the most important minerals in the human body, which contributes to the normal function of muscles. It is an essential building block for bones and teeth because up to 99% of calcium is found in bone tissue and teeth. In addition, it helps with the right metabolism important for energy production and plays an important role in the process of cell division and specialization. Calcium also contributes to normal blood clotting and the proper function of digestive enzymes. It is usually combined with magnesium and zinc to support optimal body function.

What is the recommended daily intake amount of calcium?

Daily recommended intake according to the methodologies of the European Food Safety Authority (hereinafter referred to as EFSA) and the reference values of the Society for Nutrition of German-Speaking Countries (hereinafter referred to as DACH) for an average adult.

  • 1000 mg Recommended daily amount according to EFSA and DACH: 1000 mg

Calcium is mainly found in dairy products and vegetables. However, since it has the highest proportion of all minerals in the body, it can be difficult for some groups of people to get enough calcium. This is also why vegans, athletes and the elderly often reach for nutritional supplements. Its ability to reduce the risk of osteoporosis is also beneficial for older people. It is advisable to take calcium together with vitamin D, which increases its absorption and helps maintain a healthy level of calcium in the blood.
