manufactured by Douglas Laboratories®, provides 250 mg of elemental
calcium from calcium citrate. Calcigard 250 is available with and
without added Vvitamin D.
Calcigard 250 may be a useful dietary
supplement for those at risk for osteoporosis, or anyone who wishes to
increase their intake of calcium and other nutritional factors for
maintaining good bone health.
The adult human body contains
approximately 1,200 g of calcium, of which about 99% is present in the
skeleton. Bone is constantly turning over, through 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. The remaining 1% of
total body calcium is found in the soft tissues and plays important
roles in such vital functions as nerve conduction, muscle contraction,
blood clotting, membrane permeability, and hormonal signaling.
calcium levels are carefully maintained within very narrow limits by
the interplay of several hormones (1,25-dihydroxy-cholecalciferol,
parathyroid hormone, calcitonin, estrogen, and testosterone) which
control calcium absorption and excretion, as well as bone metabolism.
Levels of soft tissue calcium are maintained at the expense of bone
calcium in the face of inadequate calcium intake or absorption.
Intestinal calcium absorption is generally higher in children than in
adults and ranges from 15 to 75% of ingested calcium. Adequate Vitamin
D status is necessary for normal calcium absorption. Osteoporosis
afflicts a large proportion of the elderly in developed countries.
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 aldolescence appears to be a
prerequisite for maintaining adequate bone density later in life.
even elderly osteoporotic patients can benefit significantly from
supplementation with dietary calcium. Calcigard 250 provides calcium
citrate which is a highly available and well tolerated source of
dietary calcium. Vitamin D is a key regulatory hormone for calcium and
bone metabolism. Adequate Vitamin D intake is important for ensuring
normal calcium absorption and maintaining proper 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 states have to rely
more on foods and supplements for adequate vitamin D status. This is
why Calcigard 250 is available both with (CA2) and without (CA1)
