Calcium-and-Vitamin-D  

Calcium plays an important role in achieving and maintaining optimum bone health, and vitamin D plays an important role by aiding in its absorption.  When consumed as a part of a well-balanced diet and incorporated with an active and healthy life-style, these compounds reduce the risk of developing osteoporosis, a disease characterized by a reduced bone mineral density.

Calcium and vitamin D not only promote healthy bone formation and retention, but have many other benefits.  Adequate vitamin D intake has been linked to decreased susceptibility for development of high blood pressure, cancer, seasonal affective disorder, type-1 diabetes, and coronary heart disease.  Vitamin D is naturally produced by the body when exposed to sunlight, however, for those with inadequate sunlight exposure, vitamin D consumption is critical to ensure proper nutrition.
