The 215 bones and 32 teeth of the human body constantly need fresh calcium every day. Without this important mineral, bones become porous and teeth become diseased.

Without healthy bones, well-being is unthinkable. They form the mechanical support structure of the human body and give us support and strength. And when the bones hurt, for example due to injuries or diseases of the bone or bone tissue, we often feel a deep-seated, dull pain that we find difficult to identify. The same applies to our teeth: We want to be able to bite forcefully every day and prevent toothache at all costs, especially since dental problems can easily affect other areas of the body. The result of dead and diseased teeth can be headaches and earaches, tension, but also sometimes serious illnesses such as rheumatism, heart and lung diseases, as emphasized by the Munich Insurance Association, for example.

“Constant calcium intake is therefore important. The 215 bones and 32 teeth of the human body constantly need fresh calcium every day. Without this important mineral, the bones become porous and the teeth become diseased,” says Natura Vitalis founder Frank Felte (www.naturavitalis.de). The Essen-based company has long been considered one of the leading manufacturers of natural nutritional supplements and attaches great importance to continuous further and new developments of health products on a scientific basis.

As an essential mineral, calcium plays a crucial role in human health. As a major component of bones and teeth, calcium supports the growth, development and maintenance of healthy bones and helps prevent osteoporosis (bone loss). Adequate calcium intake is particularly important during childhood, adolescence and early adulthood, as bone mass is built up during this time. Calcium is also crucial for the contraction and relaxation of muscles, including the heart muscles. It also plays a role in the transmission of stimuli between nerves and muscles.

Frank Felte gives further examples: “Calcium is involved in blood clotting, a vital process that helps stop bleeding in the event of an injury, and promotes the transmission of nerve impulses, which are crucial for the proper functioning of the nervous system. The mineral also plays a role in regulating various hormones in the body, including parathyroid hormone, which controls calcium levels in the blood. Speaking of blood, adequate calcium intake is also believed to help regulate blood pressure and support normal heart function and the maintenance of a regular heart rhythm.”

To reap the benefits of calcium, it is important to consume recommended daily amounts. The recommended daily intake may vary depending on age, gender and specific living conditions. Calcium-rich food sources include dairy products such as milk, cheese and yogurt, as well as green leafy vegetables such as broccoli and spinach, fortified plant-based milk alternatives and certain types of fish such as salmon and sardines.

“In some cases, calcium supplementation may be necessary, particularly in individuals with certain health conditions or when the diet does not provide sufficient calcium. For this purpose, we at Natura Vitalis have developed the product 'Osteo-Calcium-Retard' as a safe and effective natural source of calcium. The special recipe provides a sufficient amount of bioavailable calcium around the clock,” emphasizes Frank Felte (https://www.naturavitalis.de/Osteo-Calcium-Retard-120.html).
