Calcium supplements remain a valuable tool for maintaining bone health
Date:11/15/2012

maintaining calcium is vital for all age groupsyoung children to adolescents to adults and the elderly must obtain adequate amounts of calcium, either through diet or supplementation. For those who are unsure if they need to supplement their diets with additional calcium, make sure to discuss your current nutritional picture with your physician."

Supporting the expert panel's conclusion is the recent "Framingham Study," published online in the Nov. 7 American Journal of Clinical Nutrition by Elizabeth Samelson, Ph.D., et al., which also looked at the association of calcium and coronary artery calcification and found that "calcium intake from diet and supplements appeared to neither increase nor decrease vascular calcification, which is a measure of cardiovascular riskThe use of calcium supplements is important for many older adults to ensure adequate intake for bone health."[1]

The Institute of Medicine currently suggests women ages 19 through 50 and men up to 71 obtain a Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) of 1,000 milligrams calcium daily; women over 50 and men 71 and older should obtain 1,200 milligrams daily to ensure they are meeting their daily needs for strong, healthy bones. Calcium is popular among U.S. consumers, and according to CRN's most recent survey of U.S. adults, 17 percent indicate they take a calcium supplement.
