CALCIO 500

Calcium & Vitamin D

Calcium is the fifth most abundant mineral in our bodies. An adult person has approximately 1,250 grams of calcium, 99% of which can be found in bones and the remaining 1% is located in intra- and extracellular fluids. Calcium is essential for the development and maintenance of a healthy bone mass. Vitamin D facilitates absorption by the small intestine.

Properties
Bones are continually being reabsorbed and reshaped while incorporating calcium in their structure in the same manner as other calcified tissues, such as teeth, where calcium is essential for the formation and maintenance of healthy teeth.
In addition to helping to maintain healthy bones and teeth, calcium is essential in the coupling between excitation and conduction of the heart muscle. On the other hand, calcium is involved in blood clotting, the transmission of nerve impulses, muscle contraction and the stimulation of hormonal secretion. As a calcium ion (Ca++), it participates as a cofactor in many enzymatic reactions and intervenes in the metabolism of glycogen.

AT WHAT TIME OF DAY DO YOU FEEL LESS ENERGY?

When you wake up

If you feel tired and without energy to face your daily routine when you wake up, you should probably check your sleep patterns. A good quality night's sleep is the basis for waking up refreshed, alert and energized.

In the morning

Being well hydrated is important to maintain energy levels. At this time of day, check to see if you have started to incorporate the water you need for your daily routine.

Midday

If you have included a lot of refined carbohydrates in your diet, this can lead to unstable blood sugar levels and produce the fatigue you feel at this time of day. Choose fiber-rich whole foods such as vegetables and legumes as much as possible.

In the afternoon

Not consuming enough daily nutrients and calories may be the cause of your lack of energy. When we consume fewer calories, our body slows down to conserve energy and thus causes a feeling of fatigue.

At night

Too much daily stress can produce a feeling of fatigue and lack of energy. There are stress reduction techniques that can help you.
