Calcium Citrate: Bone Maintenance and More

You may have heard of calcium citrate before, but you may not be familiar with all the ways this essential mineral can improve your health. Calcium citrate is a readily digested and absorbed form of calcium, a mineral that is necessary for the maintenance of bone health. In addition to keeping our bones healthy and strong, calcium also plays an important role in nerve and muscle function, as well as blood clotting. Read on to learn more about the many benefits of calcium citrate.

1. Helps maintain bone health: As we age, our bones start to break down more quickly than they can be rebuilt. This process is called bone loss, and it can lead to conditions like osteoporosis. Getting enough calcium can help slow down or even prevent bone loss. Calcium citrate is a good choice for people with osteoporosis because it's easier for the body to absorb than other forms of calcium.

2. Prevents kidney stones: Kidney stones are hard deposits that can form in the kidneys when there's too much calcium in the urine. Taking calcium citrate can help prevent kidney stones from forming by binding with oxalates in the urine and helping them to be eliminated from the body through the stool.

3. Reduces the risk of colon cancer: Some studies have shown that getting enough calcium can reduce the risk of developing colon cancer. One theory is that calcium may help to prevent cancer-causing chemicals from being absorbed into the bloodstream. Calcium citrate is a good sources of calcium for people who are at increased risk for colon cancer, such as those with a family history of the disease or those who have had polyps removed from their colon.

4. Lowers blood pressure: Research has shown that getting enough calcium can help lower blood pressure, especially in people who are overweight or obese. One reason this may be so is that calcium helps to remove excess sodium from the body through the urine. Calcium citrate is a good source of calcium for people with high blood pressure because it doesn't contain sodium.


As you can see, there are many good reasons to make sure you're getting enough calcium citrate in your diet. This essential mineral can help maintain bone health, prevent kidney stones, reduce the risk of colon cancer, and lower blood pressure.
