Most manufacturers use sugar in their chewable formulas, but Lamberts have used fructo-oligosaccharide (FOS). This natural material is extracted from chicory root and has the benefit of not causing tooth decay. Furthermore, preliminary studies show that FOS can enhance the absorption of calcium.
99% of the bodyâ€™s calcium is found in our bones. Its major function is in building and maintaining bones and teeth, but it is also important in many enzymatic reactions in the body. Calcium is also necessary for the contraction of muscles, the release of neurotransmitters, regulation of heart beat, and the clotting of blood. Calcium deficiency in children may lead to rickets, which results in bone deformities and growth retardation. In adults, calcium deficiency may result in the softening of bone, or a condition called osteomalacia or osteopenia, where bone breakdown exceeds bone formation. Over time, a calcium deficiency may ultimately lead to osteoporosis, which thins and weakens bones making them frail to the point where they break easily. The symptoms of osteoporosis may not be noticed until most of the bone loss has already occurred. Calcium supplementation is a key factor in helping to prevent osteoporosis.
