No use taking calcium without magnesium to help it absorb.
Calcium is essential for healthy bones and teeth, and the proper functioning of the heart.
Calcium works with magnesium in its functions in the blood, nerves, muscles, and tissues.
- Dairy is not a good bioavailable source of calcium as more than calcium is needed.
- Modern medicine’s reliance on retail drugs misses this.
Micro-minerals and Vit D are needed for much calcium (and phosphorus) to be absorbed from the digestive tract. is it even appropriate for you to take a calcium tablet at all?
- Eat a traditional varied diet and have a healthy gut.
- Fermented foods, bone broths may give you far more scope for a healthy life.
(Indeed – why not eat sardines and eat the bones).
A low level of calcium supposedly has been associated with osteoporosis, which weakens the bones of our body and can lead to fractures. What about magnesium? What about looking at the pH of the blood? What about looking at the whole body? What about making sure the Vit D levels are at the upper limit? Sunlight? Great idea.
Our bones increase in strength and density from childhood until our mid-20s. Bone mass increases by about sevenfold from birth to puberty, threefold during adolescence, and then remains stable until about age 50 in men and until the menopause in women.
Osteoporosis is the name given to the process of thinning of bone tissue and loss of bone density over time. Calcium and phosphate are often identified as the principal minerals essential for normal bone formation.
What is not said is that calcium levels are determined by the balance of calcium and magnesium in our bodies. This is the crucial point that is often missed.
How much calcium do we need?
Most advice about calcium intake ignores other essential elements that are needed to ensure the optimum rate of bone density and bodily health. Should we be taking calcium supplements? Are they even safe?
