You want help to maintain healthy bones and teeth*
You want to help ensure your immune system has adequate Vitamin D to function optimally*
You don't consistently eat enough dairy or foods fortified with calcium and you'd like to add another source to your diet.
When it comes to maintaining bone health, Calcium and Vitamin D work better together.* Vitamin D promotes calcium absorption while also helping the kidneys reabsorb calcium when levels are low.*
But that's not all, Vitamin D is important for the immune system while calcium is involved in muscle contractions and nerve impulses.* If levels of calcium are not adequate from food or supplements, the body takes calcium from the bones in order to maintain these functions.

Many factors contribute to the development of osteoporosis, including gender, race, age, and hormonal status. Adequate calcium and vitamin D, as a part of a healthful diet, along with physical activity, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis in later life.
Many Americans do not get the recommended amounts of Calcium or Vitamin D from diet alone, which makes supplementation even more important. Depending on your age, an appropriate Calcium intake falls between 1000 and 1300 mg a day.
