Calcium is vital for the formation of strong gums, nerves, muscles, teeth, and bones. Regular heartbeat and transmissions of nerve impulses are dependent on calcium stores. Calcium lowers cholesterol levels and helps prevent cardiovascular disease. It is needed for muscular growth and contraction, and prevention of muscle cramps.
Calcium may increase the rate of bone growth and bone mineral density in children. This important mineral is also essential for blood clotting, lowering blood pressure, prevention of tooth decay, osteoporosis, and the prevention of cancer.
Calcium provides energy and participates in the protein structuring of RNA and DNA. It protects against eclampsia during pregnancy, the number one cause of maternal death.
High protein diets, soda drinking, coffee, alcohol, sugar, and medications affect calcium utilization, as do antacids and the mindless popping of an over the counter drug known as “Tums.” These types of medications disrupt the body’s natural stomach acids necessary for the absorption of calcium.
Calcium is the most essential biochemical element needed for human nutrition. Every organ of the brain and body needs it. Calcium is called “nature’s knitter” because it promotes repair and healing of cells throughout the body. It is needed for tone, power, strength, longevity, vitality, healing and metabolism.
Calcium is the first deficiency to be felt by the body when the diet is out of whack. For that reason, almost everyone is either calcium deficient, or borderline deficient. Few people have adequate calcium reserves.
Calcium is stored in the nerves, muscles, blood, teeth and bones. Magnesium and vitamin D help calcium to absorb while sodium helps keep calcium in solution. Calcium must be water soluble to be usable. All other form is rejected at cell level by the mitochondrion.
Calcium raises the body’s resistance to viruses, parasites, bacteria, arthritis, stroke, heart disease, and cancer. A lack of calcium leads to a host of diseases and degenerate diseases.
Calcium is necessary to keep the body’s acid/alkaline pH in balance.
Sugar, as you no doubt already know, sucks the calcium out of your body, as do junk foods, medications, “things go better with coke,” and “the Atkin’s super diet.”Phytonutrient/nutraceutical supplements: 24 super minerals Arthritis Nerve builder Bone, teeth, and nail formula Calcium orotate Silica Osteo-joint and cartilage relief formula Natural foods sources high in calcium: Raw milk, Brewer’s yeast, Filberts, Yogurt, Torulia yeast, Kale, Goat milk, Broccoli , Mustard greens,Raw milk cheese, Buttermilk, Prunes, Cottage cheese, Cabbage, Sesame seeds, Salmon, Carob, Soy beans, Sardines, Collard greens, Tofu, Clean fish with bones, Dandelion greens, Turnip greens, Almonds,Dulse, Watercress, Asparagus, Kelp, Whey, Blackstrap molasses, Figs Herbal Formulas: Deep rooted Canadian alfalfa Oat straw Dandelion Burdock root Parsley Yarrow Capsicum Peppermint Fennel seed Chamomile Red clover blossom Yellow dock Chickweed Rose hips Fenugreek Homeopathic remedies: #37 Symptoms of calcium deficiency: PMS Bell’s palsy Enlarged heart Acne High-strung Muscle cramps Cancer Convulsions Receding gums Rickets Tooth decay Low resistance Eczema Osteomalacia High cholesterol Cavities Osteoporosis Heart palpitations Arthritis Fibromyalgia Heavy metal toxicity Acidosis Nervousness High toxic conditions Insomnia ADD/DHHD Cognitive impairment Twitches Hypertension Arthritis like symptoms Cataracts Aching joints Carpal tunnel syndrome Delusions Panic attacks Fear of unknown origins Gallstones Hyperactivity White spots on fingernails Numbness Common cold Chronic Fatigue syndrome Depression Undue fatigue High or low serum calcium Brittle nails Kidney stones
