Generic Name: Cholecalciferol (25 ug)
Product Name: Calcia Vitamin D (1000 IU)
Indication of Calcia Vitamin D (1000 IU)
Calcia Vitamin D is a high-potency supplement that provides vitamin D supplementation. Vitamin D plays a role in calcium absorption. People get most of their vitamin D from exposure to sunlight and only small amounts of vitamin D are found in foods. It is very difficult to obtain sufficient vitamin D from the diet alone.
Vitamin D deficiency is associated with high bone turnover and an increased risk of falls. Supplementation with Calcia may help reduce these risks. It may also improve bone health and reduce the risk of osteoporosis. It may be particularly useful for:
- Older adults: The body’s ability to absorb calcium decreases with age;
- Individuals with an indoor lifestyle or those who avoid sunlight: Sunlight is the major source of vitamin D.
