Calcium is the main constituent of the skeleton structure and it is essential in the bone remodeling process.
Calcium carbonate, taken orally, reaches the gastric environment, where it is converted into Calcium chloride, then absorbed by the intestinal mucosa.
The metabolic fate of this trace element is influences by vitamins such as Calcitriol, which is the active form of Vitamin D3.
It is essential for the intestinal absorption of Calcium.
In particular its active form, Calcitriol, promotes the absorption not only of Calcium, but also of Phosphate, while inhibiting the release of calcitonin.
Its deficiency leads to insufficient mineralization of the newly formed bone matrix.
It provides Calcium absorption in the bones.
Vitamin K2 works in synergy with other fat-soluble vitamins, such as Vitamin D3.
It promotes Osteocalcin, a protein that attracts Calcium in the bones and activates a series of special proteins such as MPG, which mobilizes Calcium from soft tissues and arteries,where this mineral can be harmful.
