Calcium helps maintain muscle health and is an essential mineral used in the development and maintenance of strong healthy bones and teeth.

Vitamin D3 also plays an important role in the central nervous system. It’s involved in the release of neurotransmitters such as acetylcholine (memory development), dopamine (pleasure hormone), and serotonin (the happy hormone).
