Calcium is an important factor in normal muscle and nerve function. If the muscles do not function normally, it is extremely difficult for us to provide long-term positive results to you. Dietary calcium is readily available. Still, some patients cannot assimilate nor absorb the calcium from their diet. When this occurs, supplementation is necessary.
Frequently, patients we see with musculoskeletal complaints are deficient in calcium. Females are much more susceptible to this deficiency than males. These patients can have a recent blood test revealing no pathological problems with calcium; however, there still can remain a deficiency of this nutrient.
A proper calcium supplement needs to have a variety of calcium sources. Frequently, there is only one. No doctor or nutritionist knows which type of calcium your body most easily assimilates. Consequently, the more sources of calcium in the supplement, the more likely your body will assimilate this nutrient. The calcium available in our office contains five different sources and includes magnesium and boron to increase the likelihood of assimilation.
