ACTIONS
Calcium is a mineral that forms bones and keeps them strong in the body. Ninety-nine percent of calcium in the body is stored in bones and teeth. The remaining 1% is in blood and soft tissues and is essential for life and health. Without this tiny 1% of calcium, muscles wouldn't contract correctly, blood wouldn't clot and nerves wouldn't carry messages. If the body isn't got enough calcium, the body must replenish the needed calcium of blood and soft tissues by robbing it from bones - slowly, but surely causing bones to weaken and increasing the potential for fractures.
Vitamin D increases calcium and phosphorus absorption from the intestine; helps regulate their concentration in the body, called "element-resistant rickets". Vitamin D3 is easier absorption and stronger action than vitamin D2. Rickets caused by vitamin D deficiency (or nutritional rickets) that regularly occurs in children - the stage of rapid growth of skeleton, particularly children < 3 years of age.
Symptoms of rickets in children: sudorrhea, starting sleep, crying, lipsotrichia and skeletal manifestations: broad fontanelle, soft fontanelle, macrocephalia, dentia tarda, pigeon breast (both flat sides), bow-legged or splay-feet, underdeveloped pelvises. Besides, children's activities slowly develop (slow crawling or walking…), flabby muscles, abdominous, pale skin, anaemia, dyspepsia. The body must be sufficiently supplied with calcium, phosphorus, and especially vitamin D to help skeleton and muscles develop well and strongly.
