The reluctance and mistrust of the majority of people against calcium supplying medicines prescribed by doctors have also been taken into consideration. The lack of calcium is actually a much more serious problem than one would think; in fact it can show when important diseases such as the celiac disease , the sprue, the Crohn disease, colitis, hepatic and pancreatic diseases are present.

It was conceived after a careful consideration of facts such as the human physiology and the food habits. On the one hand, the idea was about giving a unique identity to a product, or rather a dressing, that is extremely common, and that we use on a daily basis. This product was to become a vehicle bringing new health to a food lifestyle which today, unfortunately, makes it difficult for us to introduce all essential nutritional factors in sufficient quantities to meet our daily requirements. The natural supply of our required nutritional factors from foodstuffs, is decreasing for various reasons: from the lengthening of storage times, to the technological treatments which the foods undergo, and to the removal of fats. It is now becoming ever more difficult for the organism to procure what it needs for its own health. On the other hand, the objective was to make a contribution in a specific field, that of the bone metabolism, to help combat the well-known diffusion of pathologies, caused by alterations of bone tissue, such as osteoporosis. While science underlines the increasing importance of calcium absorption for human health, reliable studies keep on showing the lack of that mineral among people as a serious problem, largely due to their defective food diets. The aim of the invention is to make an aliment able to combine high nutritional and organoleptic characteristics to an efficient calcium supply.The choice therefore fell naturally to Vitamin D3, extremely effective on the bone metabolism. Vitamin K1, generally better known for its antihemorrhagic properties, has in this context, a calcification function. Vitamin B6 partecipates in various processes that involve, in particular, the metabolism of the amino acids and fatty acids.
