Frequently Asked Questions

What’s better, a calcium supplement or milk?

Milk provides much more nutrients than just calcium alone.

 

It includes protein, B vitamins like B2 and B12, and minerals such as phosphorus, potassium and iodine.

 

Calcium supplements are an option if you struggle to consume an adequate amount of food and drink that are rich in calcium, or if you have a disease like osteoporosis.

Who should take a calcium supplement?

Calcium helps to build and maintain strong bones and teeth.

 

Most people get enough calcium through their diet, but certain people may benefit from taking a calcium supplement.

 

If you’re elderly, you’re more likely to be at risk for fractures and osteoporosis, so if you’re not getting enough calcium in your diet, you may benefit from taking a supplement.

 

Vegans and those who are lactose-free are also at risk of a deficiency as calcium is typically found in dairy products and fish.

nbsp;

If your child doesn’t like milk, a supplement may be a good alternative to ensure that they’re developing as they should.

How does vitamin D help the body?

Vitamin D is also known as the sunshine vitamin, as it is created by the body when our skin is exposed to direct sunlight.

 

We can also receive it by consuming certain foods, such as:

 

  • Oily fish, such as salmon, sardines, herring and mackerel
  • Red meat
  • Liver
  • Egg yolks
  • Fortified foods, such as some breads and breakfast cereals
  • Vitamin D is important, as our body requires it for maintaining both physical and mental health.

 

It helps to regulate the amount of calcium and phosphate in the body, as well as helping our body to absorb calcium to keep bones, teeth and muscles healthy.

 

Our bodies require vitamin D from birth, to ensure our bones are strong and to promote healthy development.

What are the symptoms of a vitamin D deficiency?

The trouble with a vitamin D deficiency is that it isn't always easy to spot.

 

Symptoms of a vitamin D deficiency can be subtle and you may not realise that you are deficient.

 

Signs of a vitamin D deficiency can include:

 

  • Fatigue or tiredness
  • Bone, joint or muscle pain
  • Low mood or energy
  • Being frequently ill
  • Feeling anxious
  • Irritability
  • Weight gain
  • Hair loss

 

A deficiency in children and babies can be quite dangerous, as it can lead to a disease called rickets.

 

This is a serious bone problem that can cause complications, such as bowed legs.
