Swallowing is not as simple as we think it is. It is a complex process involving coordination between muscles and nerves in the throat and esophagus. When this process does not happen as it should, problems with swallowing result. Medically this is known as dysphagia (pronounced //www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/dysphagia”>dis-ˈfā-j(ē-)ə.
In the United States, dysphagia affects approximately //bismarck.sanfordhealth.org/vitalstim/dysphagiafactsheet.pdf”>15 million people, with 1 in 17 people developing some form of dysphagia in their lifetime. And as we age, the prevalence of swallowing disorders increases.
So why am I talking about swallowing issues on a calcium and vitamin D blog? Have you ever really thought about the size of calcium tablets? If you took the entire recommended daily dose of calcium in one pill, there’s probably no way you could swallow it. In fact, most calcium tablet directions say to take four (that’s right 4) tablets to get your recommended daily dose of calcium. Now that’s hard to swallow.
With Cal-EZ, powdered calcium and vitamin D, you can take the recommended daily dose of calcium and vitamin D at one time by simply mixing it with a soft food or beverage. There are no large pills to swallow making it easier for those with and those without dysphagia to ensure they’re getting enough calcium and vitamin D.
