Description

Calvit-C contains natural calcium and Vitamin C. Calcium is essential for the growth and development of healthy bones and strong teeth. Pregnant women, nursing mothers, children, and adolescents may need more calcium than they normally get from eating calcium-rich foods. Calcium is also useful in osteoporosis and helps control blood cholesterol levels, assists nerve, muscle and digestive function, regulates heart muscle function and sleep. In growing children it is useful for healthy bones and optimal growth, for quick healing of fractures and in Calcium Deficiency Syndrome whereas Vitamin C lowers blood pressure and cholesterol levels, helps thin the blood and protect it against oxidation. Vitamin C also helps prevent atherosclerosis by strengthening the artery walls through its participation in the synthesis of collagen, and by preventing the undesirable adhesion of white blood cells to damaged arteries. An adequate intake of the vitamin is highly protective against stroke and heart attack.
