Health Notes

Calcium

Calcium
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

1,200 to 1,500 mg daily3 stars[3 stars]
Supplementing with calcium may reduce the risk of gestational hypertension.
Lactose Intolerance
500 to 1,200 mg daily depending on age and other calcium sources3 stars[3 stars]

In preliminary research, people with chronic tension-type headaches who were also suffering from severe vitamin D deficiency experienced an improvement in their symptoms after supplementing with vitamin D and calcium.
Amenorrhea and Osteoporosis

(Vitamin D)
Refer to label instructions 1 star[1 star]
Despite the lack of evidence that calcium and vitamin D supplements alone are helpful to amenorrheic women, they are still generally recommended to prevent the added burden of calcium and vitamin D deficiency from further contributing to bone loss.
Colon Cancer
Refer to label instructions 1 star[1 star]
Through a variety of mechanisms, calcium appears to reduce precancerous conditions in the colon and the risk of colon cancer.

Multiple Sclerosis
Refer to label instructions 1 star[1 star]
Calcium levels have been reported to be low in people with MS. In one study, people given a combination of cod liver oil, magnesium, and calcium had a significantly reduced number of MS attacks.

Calcium is the most abundant, essential mineral in the human body. Of the two to three pounds of calcium contained in the average body, 99% is located in the bones and teeth. Calcium is needed to form bones and teeth and is also required for blood clotting, transmission of signals in nerve cells, and muscle contraction. The importance of calcium for preventing osteoporosis is probably its most well-known role.

          Comments about GNC WELLbeING® be-BALANCED&#153 - Chocolate Brownie:

          I needed a calcium, vit. D supplement after going to the doctor and finding I had a very low level of vit. D. The doctor first gave me a high prescription dose of vit. D and then told me I needed to find a supplement, so off to GNC I went. The associate recommended this supplement to me because he said his mom really enjoyed them. He had free samples and I liked the chocolate brownie better than the caramel. I've been taking this supplement for over a year at the dose recommended for my gender and age and have had mid normal values of vit. D ever since. This product is effective, tasty and easy to use.

              I normally don't write reviews, but I saw the reviews on this and thought I should step in. Others are claiming that they do not like the taste of these vitamins, but I found them to be rather enjoyable. They don't smell bad either, so they are easy to chew and swallow without any nauseous feeling. The only reason I gave it 4 stars rather than 5 is because I find it somewhat expensive.

                These are great when you first feel a little hunger...eat 1-2 and I forget about hunger for a while. They are also good to use when I crave something sweet instead of a more fatty option.

                    Maybe not the best tasting (as commented by other review) but definitely not the worst. The easiest way possible to get the daily calcium needed!

                    I am taking calcium supplements because I am pregnant. I bought this flavor because I thought it would be an improvement from the dulce de leche flavor. Wrong! Don't be deceived by the brownie title. The taste is strong and you can't wait to finish chewing.
