Adequate calcium in the blood is so vital to a wide variety of bodily functions that our internal biochemistry will not tolerate a deficiency even for short periods. Clinical evidence suggests that calcium is useful for the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis and associated fractures. Vitamin-D is also essential for health bones as it aids in calcium absorption from the GI tract. In addition to this it stimulates bone formation .
