Calcium is such an important mineral. It helps promote healthy, strong bones. *It also helps with muscle contractions and nerve impulses. *It is found naturally in many foods, especially dairy products. Having vitamin D3 in addition to calcium helps with the absorption of calcium while supporting a healthy immune system.
Here is some information about how much calcium is recommended for different ages:
|0–6 months*||200 mg||200 mg|
|7–12 months*||260 mg||260 mg|
|1–3 years||700 mg||700 mg|
|4–8 years||1,000 mg||1,000 mg|
|9–13 years||1,300 mg||1,300 mg|

|51–70 years||1,000 mg||1,200 mg|
|71+ years||1,200 mg||1,200 mg|
As you can see, the recommended amount of calcium for an average adult is 1000 mg of calcium per day. More is needed for females aged 51+ and for males aged 71+. The time that we need the most calcium is from aged 9-18 when a ton of bone growth is occurring.
