Calcium (Ca) is the main building material of the bone, and also participates in many vital processes in the organism: it provides blood clotting, muscle contraction, the transmission of nerve impulses and is responsible for the beauty of hair, skin and nails.
Calcium deficiency may not manifest itself for a long time, at this time the body experiences "hidden hunger". In order to reduce the risk of deficiency conditions, it is necessary to adhere to a healthy lifestyle, give preference to healthy and balanced food, take time to physical activity and use additional sources of vitamins and minerals. The combined use of Ca with vitamins D3 and K2 helps to reduce the risk of fractures, the risk of decrease in bone density and strength, as well as calcium deposition on the walls of blood vessels<sup>5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10.
Calcium, vitamins D3 and K2 together form the triangle of bone and vascular health. Vitamin K2 in the form of MK-7 contributes to the correct distribution of calcium, reducing the risk of calcium deposition on the walls of blood vessels. The combination of Whiteline components helps to maintain the density of bones and teeth, taking care of the condition of the skin, hair, nails and even the heart, regardless of age.
*Dietary supplement. NOT A DRUG.
