Liquid Calcium Supplements
Liquid Calcium Supplements
A supplement is something that you take to help you get the right kind of nutrition that you may be missing in your diet. There are many different types of supplements, including vitamins, minerals, herbs or amino acids and sugars. Calcium is an important mineral that helps to make your bones strong. Calcium also helps to lower your risk of broken bones (fractures) as you get older and is found in many dairy based foods including milk, yogurt and cheese. People who use these foods most of the time probably have enough calcium in their diets. There are times when you need extra calcium and may not be able to get it through your diet. One example is osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is when your bones lose a lot of their denseness due to loss of minerals and develop small holes. This makes them brittle and more likely to fracture. This happens most often in older white and Asian women, but anyone can get osteoporosis. There have been many studies that proved that using calcium and vitamin D supplement can help reduce your risk of getting osteoporosis and fractures.
Features and Benefits
Calcium supplements are usually larger and may be difficult for some people to swallow. Some people simply prefer liquids over pills. Whatever your reason for using a liquid supplement, Walgreens offers many liquid supplements to make sure that you get the extra calcium that you may need on a daily basis. All you need to do is take a few teaspoons every day. These liquids can be used as they are or mixed with fruit juice if that works better for you. There are also liquid calcium supplements that have vitamin D in them. Vitamin D helps your body to absorb calcium easier and more effectively.
