Calcium Absorption: List Of Research-Backed Claims

Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body. Your body needs adequate dietary calcium to maintain healthy bones and to carry out many essential functions in your body.

Calcium absorption is affected by several promoting and inhibitory factors.

Promoting factors can be nutrients, like vitamins, but also an acidic environment in the small intestine.

Inhibitory factors can be different foods, like pulses, oxalate, or excessive intakes of dietary fibers.

The ability of your body to absorb calcium decreases with age. Then it's even more vital to help absorb the calcium from the food you consume.
