TIENS Super Calcium Powder for Children

Calcium is an element essential for health and development of children. However, nutritionists are alarming that children’s diet is lacking products rich in calcium. Deficiencies of this element in the diet are adverse, especially for the young organism, because calcium has a positive effect on effect on bone mineral density and in consequence on   contributes to healthy bone growth in children. Low bone mineral density is a risk factor for osteoporotic bone fractures It is hence recommended that children and adolescents consume three calcium-rich products in everyday diet. In periods of increased demand for calcium the diet should be supported with appropriate supplementation.

Calcium requirement in children depends on age. The diet of children between 1 and 3 years of age should contain 700 mg of calcium per day. Children between 4 and 8 years should consume 1000 mg per day, and older children and adolescents (9-18 years) as much as 1300 mg (the norm for an adult is 1,000 mg). The increased calcium requirement in children is a result of their active growth. Even a calcium-rich diet (dairy products, fish, legumes) does not always ensure appropriate levels of calcium. For example, a glass of milk corresponds to 60% of calcium requirement of a young child whereas that number is merely 20% for a teenager. It is worth noting that an appropriate calcium intake in childhood and adolescence pays off in the future since the so-called peak bone mass is reached around the age of 30. Calcium ensures strong bones, lowering the risk for bone fracture or minor damage. Moreover, childhood is the period when our teeth are formed. Calcium deficiencies – hypocalcaemia leads to many disorders  abnormalities in the development  and work of the organism especially for children young people (among other: abnormal bone growth in children, abnormal muscle function and neurotransmission, abnormal blood coagulation and abnormal function of digestive enzymes). Therefore a balanced diet is so important, to not run out of essential nutrients to strengthen and to support the work of the organism
