Each tablet provides 775mg of Calcium L-Threonate, which equates to 100mg of Calcium per tablet. It is intended to be taken as an additional source of Calcium and should be consumed as part of a healthy, balanced diet and an active lifestyle.

What is Calcium L-threonate?
Calcium L-threonate is the calcium salt of L-threonic acid and is one of the major metabolites of vitamin C produced during the metabolic process.
The trade name of the compound is calcium L-threonate. The calcium L-threonate food supplement is in tablet form and each tablet weighs 972 mg.

Calcium is the most abundant mineral in our bodies. Over 99% of total body calcium is found in the teeth and bones. Therefore, in addition to the obvious structural role of the skeleton, bone also serves as a reservoir for Calcium. A lack of calcium could lead to a condition called rickets in children or osteoporosis in later life (NHS). Most of us know that calcium is needed for the maintenance of normal bones and teeth, but calcium also contributes to normal:

  • Muscle function

  • Neurotransmission (communication between neurons)

  • Cell division and specialisation

  • Energy yielding metabolism (help turn food into energy)

  • Functioning of digestive enzymes

  • Blood Clotting

Adults and children over 12 years: swallow 3 to 6 tablets daily, with food. Do not exceed the stated daily intake. 

Talk to your doctor if you are on any medication. The recent EFSA re-evaluation of the safety in use of calcium (EFSA 2012d) and IOM both derived a UL of 2500 mg/day for total intake from all sources and the EVM (2003) set a GL for supplemental calcium at 1500 mg/day, stating that such a supplemental level would not be expected to result in any adverse effect. Taking high doses of calcium (over 1,500mg a day) could lead to stomach pain and diarrhoea. High dietary calcium levels can influence the bioavailability and absorption of many trace elements in individuals with low intakes; e.g. magnesium, iron, manganese and zinc. Store in a cool, dry place not exceeding 25°C.
