PharmaNord Bio-Calcium + D3 + K 500mg Tablets 150
PharmaNord Bio Calcium + D3 + K 500mg is a combination supplement that contains a high percentage of elemental calcium in an easily absorbed form. Calcium and vitamin D are needed for the maintenance of normal bone in adults as well as for the growth of bone in children. A sufficient daily intake of calcium is important in older adults, particularly women around the menopause, as well as in young people, to build up strong bones at an early age and counteract the loss of bone mass which occurs in later life.
