Lipocal® – Microencapsulated Water-Dispersible Calcium

Did you know the importance of calcium for the body? Calcium is essential to maintain body health and prevent chronic disease such as osteoporosis, arterial hypertension, obesity and colon cancer. Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body which needed to give structure and hardness for our bones and teeth. Optimal calcium intake will be required to reduce the risk of osteoporosis by maximising the bone mass as we grow up.

How can we obtain optimal calcium intake? Usually, the richest source of calcium came from dairy products, such as milk, yogurt and cheese. However, people with lactose intolerant are unable to consume dairy products as it will they cause them to have diarrhea, gas, bloating, or other side effects. Due to this, people are advised to consume calcium-fortified foods and beverage or calcium supplement to obtain optimal calcium intake.
