Product Description

What it does:

Swisse Ultiboost Calcium and Vitamin D is a well-balanced bone health supplement that provides a rich source of Calcium and Vitamin D to help support healthy bones and teeth

Swisse Ultiboost Calcium and Vitamin D contains a premium form of Calcium (citrate) and natural Vitamin D for increased absorption. It also contains Bioperine, a unique standardised extract of black pepper shown to help increase nutrient uptake. One of the most abundant minerals in the human body, calcium accounts for approximately 1.5% of total body weight. Bones and teeth house 99% of the calcium in the body, while the remaining 1% is distributed to other areas. Calcium is best known for its role in maintaining the strength and density of bones. In a process known as bone mineralisation, calcium and phosphorus join to form calcium phosphate. Calcium phosphate is a major component of the mineral complex that provides structure and strength to bones. Calcium also plays a role in many physiological activities not related to bones including blood clotting, nerve conduction, muscle contraction, regulation of enzyme activity, and cell membrane function. Because these physiological activities are essential to life, the body uses complex systems to tightly control the amount of calcium in the blood so that calcium is available for these activities. As a result, when dietary intake of calcium is low, the body will draw on calcium stores in the bones to maintain normal blood concentrations, which, after a long period of time, can lead to osteoporosis. 

Calcium requirements increase with age, gender, post menopause, diet, pregnancy and lactation. Swisse Ultiboost Calcium and Vitamin D helps in the treatment of calcium deficiency and may help in the treatment of osteoporosis. 

Vitamin D is essential for health and wellbeing. It plays a critical role in regulating calcium and phosphorus levels in the body and is important for bone growth and development. The most important dietary form of Vitamin D is cholecalciferol (Vitamin D3) which is identical to the form of vitamin D produced in the body. Swisse Ultiboost Calcium and Vitamin D contains the recommended daily amount of Vitamin D3.

Ensuring an adequate intake of calcium and co-factors is vital for women and men of all ages, as evidence suggests that the earlier you start looking after your bones the better. Healthy early life practices, including exercise and the adequate consumption of nutrients such as those found in Swisse Ultiboost Calcium and Vitamin D contribute to greater bone strength throughout later life. 

What is in it?

  • Calcium Citrate - Calcium is best known for its role in the development and maintenance of bones and teeth. Calcium is also heavily involved with muscular contraction and relaxation, nerve function, blood pressure, heart function, immunity and blood clotting. Requirements of Calcium increase during pregnancy, growth periods, in cases of low bone mineral density and for people with high-protein, high-fat or high-phosphorus diets.
  • Vitamin D - can be synthesized by the body with the help of sunlight, however there are still a large percentage of people who are Vitamin D deficient and it is the most common vitamin deficiency in Australia. The major role of vitamin D is its involvement in bone mineralization as it helps to regulate calcium metabolism and normal bone calcification. Even with enough dietary calcium, poor levels of Vitamin D will lead to poor bone calcification, thus making adequate vitamin D essential for strong and healthy bones.
  • Black pepper - a common household herb that has also been used for many years as a medicine particularly in India. BioPerineå¨ is standardised patent product sourced out of black pepper (piperinigrum). Its role is to enhance the bioavailability of supplement nutrients by increasing the absorption.

High dose calcium supplements should be taken cautiously with cardiac glycosides and calcium channel blockers. Calcium can interact with some medications therefore it is best to take supplements at least two hours apart from other medications.
