Decalcit® - just what's needed?
A balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle can usually ensure a sufficient supply of all the necessary nutrients in healthy persons. Nevertheless, calcium and vitamin D deficiency are widespread especially among the elderly.
Bone contains not only calcium but also phosphate in a ratio of about 1,6:1. On supplementation of calcium, e.g. in the form of carbonate salt, it can interfere with the uptake of phosphates from the diet.
This can negatively influence the bone mineral density. This effect can be counteracted by additional phosphate supplementation.
Existing knowledge indicates that together with a daily glass of milk and a piece of cheese, Decalcit® is suitable for dietary supplementation in the elderly.
