The adult human body contains
approximately 1,200 g of calcium, about 99% of which is present in the
skeleton. Bone is constantly turning over, a continuous process of
formation and resorption. In children and adolescents, the rate of
formation of bone mineral predominates over the rate of resorption. In
later life, resorption predominates over formation. Therefore, in
normal aging, there is a gradual loss of bone.
condition of reduced bone mineral density that can increase risk of
fractures, affects a large proportion of the elderly in developed
countries. Caucasian and Asian women typically have low peak bone
densities, and therefore, are at the greatest risk of developing
osteoporosis. It is generally accepted that obtaining enough dietary
calcium throughout life can significantly decrease the risk of
developing osteoporosis. Among other factors, such as regular exercise,
gender and race, calcium supplementation during childhood and
adolescence appears to be a prerequisite for maintaining adequate bone
density later in life. But even elderly osteoporotic patients can
benefit significantly from supplementation with dietary calcium.
D is a key regulatory hormone for calcium and bone metabolism.
Intestinal calcium absorption ranges from 15 to 75% of ingested
calcium. Adequate Vitamin D status is essential for ensuring normal
calcium absorption and maintenance of healthy calcium plasma levels.
People living in southern regions of the U.S. can derive significant
amounts of Vitamin D from sunlight dependent synthesis in the skin
during the summer, whereas people in the northern latitudes have to
rely more on foods and supplements for adequate Vitamin D status.
Vitamin D also acts on tissue not related to calcium metabolism.
Studies have found receptors for vitamin D metabolites in a wide
variety of tissues ranging from the colon to the ovary.
