The time during your motherhood and the first months of your baby's life, when you are feeding, are critical times for both you and your baby to obtain enough calcium. Many of your baby's organs depend on calcium to grow properly and adults need calcium to prevent osteoporosis and other health problems. Calcium plays a role in many bodily functions, most importantly bone development and maintenance. Mainly Two forms of calcium exist: calcium citrate and CaCo3. Calcium citrate is generally the preferred form, especially when you are pregnant, because it is more easily digested, more readily absorbed into the body and generally causes less constipation A developing baby making the miraculous transformation from tiny embryo to energetic infant needs all sorts of vitamins and minerals, including calcium, to thrive. In addition to helping build strong bones and teeth, calcium also supports in the development of the baby's heart, muscles and nerves, and ensures good blood-clotting ability. Indian Council of Research (ICMR) recommends 1200 mg/d for pregnant and lactating mothers to meet the increased needs of the baby in the womb and to compensate for calcium secreted in the milk. Develo NostoCa MOM offers 1000 mg of elemental calcium from calcium citrate [not 1000 mg of calcium citrate which offers only 210 mg of elemental calcium] and meets 100% RDA for calcium in motherhood .
