calcum _bonesCalcium is an essential mineral- bone and teeth ingredient, play key role in nervous information transformation.

Functions:

  • indispensable for many hormones functioning
  • essential for muscles functioning
  • necessary for brain neurotransmitter release
  • support nervous system
  • indispensable for blood coagulation process and blood pressure
  • participate in strengthening bones and teeth
  • take part in iron metabolism
  • necessary for proper heart rate preservation
  • cells formation essential ingredient
  • support vitamin B12 assimilation process
  • indispensable for skeleton formation which is its depository
  • ensure normal blood coagulation
  • accelerate healing of injuries
  • many enzymes muscle functioning, relaxation, optimism, enthusiasm and healthy dream is dependant on calcium presence

Prophylaxis:

  • growth pains
  • menstrual pains
  • osteoporosis
  • allergies
  • high blood pressure
  • insomnia

Calcium deficiency symptoms:

  • growth disorders
  • rickets
  • gum diseases
  • muscle contractions
  • formication and stiffness in limns
  • constipations
  • rush

Overdose:

  • disorientation
  • high blood pressure
  • skin and eyes light sensitiveness
  • intensified thirst
  • slow and irregular heart rate
  • bones and muscles pains
  • skin itch
  • intensified urine excrete
  • metallic taste in mouth
  • mouth dryness

Better assimilation factors: vitamin D, lactates and citrates.

Sources in food:
Diary products (excluding butter), peas, bin, poppy seed, fish, almonds, caviar, soya, turnip, sunflower, green vegetables, wholefat powdered milk, condensed sugar free milk, rennet cheese, “tylżycki”, “gouda”, “trapistów”, processed cheese, camembert, cottage cheese of eve’s milk, smoked sprat, milk chocolate, large amounts of calcium can be found in water from  water supply system and in water from wells.

Curiosities:

  • sitting type of life can cause decalcification of bones
  • proper calcium deposits depend on physical activity
  • regions where peoples drink water of large calcium, magnesium and lithium containing rate, they rarely suffer cardiac diseases because calcium and magnesium from hard water merge in bowels with saturated fats creating soup-like liquid which is excreted from organism ei. people drinking hard water get rid of redundant fats and there is no surplus cholesterol formation.
  • it is probable that bid doses of calcium with D vitamin protect against colon cancer
  • calcium located in vegetables is poorly assimilated because vegetables contain oxalic acid and cellulose
  • another poor source of calcium are cereal products, large amount of phosphorus in this products in a phytic acid form create with calcium inassimilable compounds.
  • optimal calcium dose determination is difficult because there is no practical method of individual assimilation rate definition.
  • the most rich source of calcium are: fat corrected milk, yogurt and half fat cheese because lactose present in this products intensify calcium assimilation. Another rich source of calcium are fish especially those in tins eaten with fishbones.
  • in growth period, the gradual calcification of bones take place and at the age of 20 almost 90% of
  • Skeleton mass is formed. At the age of 35, skeleton achieve its maximal mass and calcification. Afterwords, there is decrease in skeleton mass, subsequently 1% a year and 10 to 15 years after menopause, a year loss of bones mass can reach 10%. That result the osteoporosis to occur, a disease in case of women. The calcium in indispensable for proper blood pressure, nervous transportation and other physiological processes, its shortage in blood force the organism to collect calcium from bones.
