Calcium is an essential mineral for strong bones and teeth. It also plays a role in muscle function, blood circulation, and nerve transmission. The recommended daily intake for adults is 1000-1300 mg per day. Good sources of calcium include dairy products, leafy green vegetables, and fortified foods like orange juice.
Vitamin D3 helps the body absorb calcium and is important for maintaining bone health. It is synthesized by the skin when exposed to sunlight, but it can also be obtained through food sources such as eggs, fatty fish, and mushrooms. The recommended daily intake for adults is 600-800 IU per day. Vitamin K2 is needed for the proper use of calcium in the body. It helps to direct calcium to the bones where it is needed and away from the arteries and soft tissues where it can be harmful. Good food sources of vitamin K2 include natto (fermented soybeans), hard cheeses, and chicken liver.
