Advice

One capsule per meal for optimal assimilation. From one to three capsules per day according to the other calcium intake of the diet.

Vitamin D supplementation is recommended for the good bone fixation of calcium (Calcium Vegan-Essentiels is compatible with the essential vitamin and mineral complex Vegan-Essentiels)

Utility

• Calcium carbonate has a moderating effect on stomach acidity.

• Modular daily dose (from 1 to 3 capsules) according to other calcium intakes

• Quality / price ratio

Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the human body, about 1 to 1.2 kg in adults. 99% of this calcium contributes to the formation and strength of bones and teeth. Non-bone calcium, despite its small share (1%), is involved in many functions essential to the body : blood coagulation, muscle contraction, nerve conduction, release of hormones…

At any age, it is essential to ensure permanent and sufficient coverage of calcium requirements. This is particularly true during childhood and adolescence, when the maximum bone capital is established, as well as for seniors when the physiological aging of the bone occurs and pregnant women.

Worth to note that the main studies regarding the vegan’s real nutrition practices (Oxford Epic- Univ Brussels) report that the Vegan have insufficient calcium intakes.

Calcium intake should be daily (about 1g / day for an adult, and 20% more for teenagers and seniors), because the body hardly compensates for periods of sub-deficiency : we must ensure a level satisfactory intake every day. Citrus fruits, vegetables have significant levels of calcium but require a consistent appetite to reach the desired daily amount, which is why we use foods supplemented with calcium (eg soy milk) to ensure the coverage of needs in non-dairy diets.

The simple alternative is the Vegan Essentiels calcium supplement : each capsule contains 31% of the Calcium RDA, which allows to divide the daily intake (over the 3 meals) to optimize its assimilation. Smaller doses at once are better assimilated that bigger ones. There is no risk of overdose, even with 3 capsules per day whatever the other contributions in a non-dairy diet. The daily limit is estimated at 2.5 gr of absorbed calcium.

Vegan Essentiels calcium is brought in its simplest and most natural form : calcium carbonate, which is correctly assimilated when the doses are divided. We recommend taking one capsule per meal in the middle of it so that the stomach acid can split the molecule, reason for which calcium carbonate also contributes to the regulation of the pH of the stomach. EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) notes in its 2007 report on the subject ‘the absorption of calcium carbonate is comparable to that of calcium citrate’.

A supplement of Vit D3 such as Vegan Essentiels Vit B12 and D3 is advised to allow the good fixation of calcium.

Vegan Essentiels capsules are packaged in 100% recyclable and compostable containers of cardboard and vegetal plastic exclusively derived from renewable resources (plants, cereals) according to the standards EN 13432. It does not contain Bisphenol A or other endocrine disruptors.

Our Vegan Essentiels containers will be glad to have a second life for your home use (salt, peppercorns, spices etc.), think twice before  to throw it away unnecessarily !
