What it is
Calciobase is a calcium-based food supplement with sweetener. The. The calcium in Calciobase is in the form of calcium citrate, which represents a bioavailable organic form of this important mineral.
Why calcium is important
Calcium is a mineral involved in many of your organs’ functions and is mainly stored in the bone tissue, where it is used for the preservation of it’s anatomical structure, and in the muscle tissue, where it guarantees its regular contracting function.
Why take Calciobase
Although the best way to maintain calcium levels within normal range is through a balanced and adequate diet, you may not always be getting the right calcium intake from your food: when that happens, Calciobase can help you boost your daily dietary calcium intake
How much calcium do we need on a daily basis?
According to the S.I.N.U. guidelines (Italian Society of Human Nutrition), the recommended intake level for the Italian population (PRI) for calcium stands on average at 1000 mg per day, a value that increases in adolescence, when the body is still growing, and in age advanced.

So, for example, if you needed to take 1000 mg of calcium a day, you would take two 500 mg stick packs per day at different times of the day. This increases the absorption of calcium, as daily dosage is broken down in several administrations throughout the day (3,4). *NRVs = Nutrient Reference Values (adults) according to Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011
