Vitamin D enhances the efficiency of the intestinal absorption of calcium. In the absence of adequate vitamin D, only 10% to 15% of calcium is absorbed and in the presence of vitamin D, calcium absorption increases to 30% to 40%. Calcium balance is generally positive during growth, neutral in the mature adult, and negative in older adults. Reduced estrogen levels in women result in reduced calcium absorption and retention, increased bone turnover, and lower bone mass. Elderly women, in general, have an impaired intestinal response to vitamin D which can lead to negative calcium balance and bone loss.
Weight loss: taking calcium supplements promotes fat loss and suppresses the increased bone resorption.
Women taking calcium plus vitamin D are more likely to lose weight and maintain their weight and have a lower risk of developing abdominal obesity.
In premenopausal women aged 18 to 50, Calcium with vitamin D reduces PMS symptoms and bone loss significantly.
Taking calcium with vitamin D appears to beneficially affect tooth retention in the elderly and might decrease the relative risk of ischemic stroke.
High intake of dietary or supplemental calcium with vitamin D seems to reduce the risk of colorectal cancer.
Postmenopausal women taking Calcium with Vitamin D might show a 10% improvement in bone mineral density, and a up to 70% overall reduction in fracture rates and have a 60% lower relative risk for developing cancer of any type.
