Vitamin D. The only medicine that cures deficiency of vitamin d is vitamin d! take d3, about 5000 units/day but spending time in the sun helps you make your own d. Vit d is essential for absorbing calcium, so adequate d should help you absorb calcium from your diet- leafy greens are a good source. It is also wise to take some vit a & vit k, which work in conjunction with vit d.
Theoretically the body cannot absorb calcium without enough vitamin d. I have vit d deficiency but my calcium levels are good. What's up with that?
Can maintain blood. The level of calcium in your blood has nothing to do with how well you're absorbing calcium. We have a huge reservoir of calcium in our bones ; the amount in our blood is regulated by parathyroid hormone; we need to keep serum calcium levels within a narrow range or we die. Even if you absorb no calcium you can maintain a normal blood level due to the stores in your bone.See http://bit.Ly/1ekkvkv. Read more...
