Calcium K2 with D3 contains two well absorbed forms of calcium - Aquamin and calcium citrate.
Aquamin is a highly bioavailable source of calcium derived from mineralised seaweed.
Calcium supports bone density and maintains strong, healthy bones. A diet deficient in calcium can lead to osteoporosis later in life. Calcium may help prevent of osteoporosis when dietary intake is inadequate.
Calcium and vitamin D help to support teeth mineralisation and maintain healthy teeth.
Vitamin D assists intestinal absorption of calcium and helps maintain healthy, strong bones.
Calcium and vitamin D help to maintain bone health by supporting bone density and strength in post-menopausal woman.
Vitamin K2 (menaquinone 7), in the form of K2VITAL Delta, is necessary to incorporate calcium into bone to support the integrity and strength of bones.
Calcium and vitamin K2 help to maintain cardiovascular system health.
Adults and children over 12 years – Take 1 tablet, two to three times daily, with food, or as directed by your health professional.
DRUG INTERACTIONS: Contraindicated with integrase inhibitors (e.g. dolutegravir, elvitegravir, raltegravir – HIV therapy) – calcium decreases drug serum levels.
Caution with tetracycline and quinolone antibiotics – calcium may reduce drug bioavailability. Take antibiotics either 2 hours before or 4-6 hours after calcium.
Caution with aluminium salts (e.g. antacids) – calcium citrate may increase the absorption of aluminum. Separate dose.
Caution with bisphosphonates – calcium reduces drug absorption and may reduce effectiveness. Take bisphosphonates at least 30 minutes before calcium supplements.
Caution with calcipotriene – administration with calcium may increase the risk of hypercalcaemia.
Caution with sotalol – calcium may reduce drug absorption. Separate dose.
Caution with thyroxine – calcium may reduce drug absorption. Separate dose by at least 4 hours.
Caution with lithium – long-term use may increase risk of hypercalcaemia.
Caution with thiazide diuretics – drug decreases urinary excretion of
calcium, potentially increasing risk of hypercalcaemia. Monitor serum calcium levels.
Caution with cardiac glycosides (Digoxin) – calcium and vitamin D
supplementation may cause drug toxicity. Monitor use.
Caution with calcium channel blockers – vitamin D and calcium may
increase the risk of hypercalcaemia and reduce drug effectiveness (theoretical).
Caution with orlistat – drug interferes with vitamin D and K2 absorption. Seperate dose.
Caution with anticoagulant/antiplatelet drugs – vitamin K may affect
anticoagulant effect. Monitor.
Caution with magnesium, iron and zinc supplements - concurrent use
with calcium can reduce the absorption of these minerals. Separate dose by 2 hours.
CAUTIONS: Calcium supplementation is contraindicated in hypercalcaemia and hypercalciuria.
Caution with hyperparathyroidism and chronic kidney disease calcium supplementation should only be taken under medical supervision.
Vitamin D is contraindicated in people with vitamin D hypersensitivity,
systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and hypercalcaemia.
SIDE EFFECTS: Calcium supplementation may cause gastrointestinal irritation, constipation and flatulence in some sensitive individuals.
