Calcium for strong bones
Calcium is an essential mineral to the development of healthy bone. During childhood and adolescence, maintaining adequate amount of calcium is necessary for higher bone density which can reduce the risk of bone fracture later in life. A study has shown that high calcium intake in adolescent can provide a protective effect for bones. Apart from being the key of bone and teeth formation, Calcium is also important in nerve signal transmission and muscle contraction. When calcium intake is insufficient, bone breakdown will occur in order to maintain normal body functions, making the bones weak and fragile.
Children who will not or cannot drink milk, picky eaters and fast food culture may reduce calcium intake. In addition, high levels of caffeine and phosphate in soft drinks can further increase the loss of calcium from the body. Therefore, calcium supplement is suitable to provide healthy development of children’s bones and teeth.
Magnesium for better physical performance
Magnesium is also a critical component of bones and teeth. Magnesium is a cofactor for more than hundreds metabolic reactions and regulates several functions in the body like cell growth, energy production, protein synthesis, muscle function and nerve transmission. Some studies have shown that low magnesium level is associated with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children
Magnesium is involved in bone formation and influences the activities of bone cells. Magnesium can convert vitamin D to its active form which increases calcium absorption. Magnesium can also improve physical performance as it is re-distributed within the body to cater for increased energy need for the muscle.
Zinc for growth and development
Zinc is an essential trace element to maintain health. More than 300 enzymes depend on zinc for catalytic activity. Zinc is important for growth development, neurological function and maintenance of the body’s immune system. Zinc can promote wound healing and activate white blood cell to fight against infections. Zinc also has anti-oxidizing property which can maintain the health of your children eyes. Some studies show that zinc deficiency has been linked to depression, learning disabilities and poor attention.
Zinc is an important component for the development of bone cells as well. It simulates the bone formation and inhibits the bone resorption. Therefore, zinc can increase the bone density and strengthen structure of the bones.
Vitamin D for Calcium Absorption
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin. Vitamin D is an essential nutrient that contributes to healthy, strong bones and regulates the amount of calcium in the body. Vitamin D can be synthesized by our skin through sunlight exposure or absorbed from normal diet. However, less than 10% of Vitamin D comes from diet.
Vitamin D promotes calcium absorption in the intestine which can enhance bone growth and keep the teeth stronger. Vitamin D deficiency reduces the absorption of calcium and phosphorus and can thus lead to poor mineralization in the bones. As the result, it can cause rickets, poor growth and muscle weakness in children.
