Pillar Performance Elite Calcium features a clinical blend of nutritional co-factors, calcium, vitamin K2 & vitamin D3, to support bone mineral density, and achieve optimal calcium absorption.
Clinically developed as a potent one per day tablet, Elite Calcium uses calcium citrate tetrahydrate – an easily digested and absorbed form of calcium – with menaquinone-7 vitamin K.
Vitamin K2 is often the forgotten hero within mixed bone supplements. Vitamin K2 has the ability to balance and optimise calcium usage, promoting arterial flexibility by preventing the accumulation of calcium in the cardiovascular system and enhancing distribution across the body and into bones.

How much calcium intake is recommended per day?
To ensure adequate levels of calcium are present in the blood without drawing from the bones, individuals must consume 1000-1500mg daily. This can pose challenges for those that are lactose intolerant, have specific dietary requirements and/or underlying conditions that serve as an obstacle to calcium absorption.
How do vitamin D and vitamin K help absorb calcium?
Deficiencies in vitamin D have been linked to increased vulnerability in muscle and bone related conditions, such as increasing one’s risk of osteopenia, precipitating and exacerbating osteoporosis, and increasing muscle weakness. This is because vitamin D plays a synergistic role in supporting the absorption of calcium. Similarly, vitamin K – also a fat-soluble – is intricately involved in a positive feedback loop with vitamin D, whereby vitamin D promotes the production of Vitamin K dependent proteins.
Adults: Take one (1) tablet per day with food or as directed by your healthcare professional.
