Calcium supplements facts sheet

  1. 1. Calcium Supplements-Fact Sheet
  2. 2. Calcium A mineral found mainly in the hard part of bones, where it is stored. Calcium is added to bone by cells called osteoblasts and removed from bone by cells called osteoclasts. Calcium is essential for healthy bones and is also important for muscle contraction, heart action, and normal blood clotting. Food sources of calcium include dairy foods; some leafy green vegetables, such as broccoli and collards.
  3. 3. Types of Calcium Deficiency 1) Dietary Calcium Deficiency: - Individuals who fail to get enough calcium intakes from their food suffer from this problem. In such a scenario, natural calcium storage in the bones gets depleted. Consequently, it leads to weaker bones. This deficiency also causes osteoporosis, a humped back, high risk of fractures and other dangerous problems. Indications of Dietary Calcium Deficiency : -  Back or neck torment  Bone torment  Bone breaks as a result of minor or no injury  Loss of stature  Stooped posture
  4. 4. 2) Hypocalcemia The second type of calcium deficiency is hypocalcemia. It lowers the calcium level in the blood. This deficiency generally occurs due to certain medications, or medical conditions,such as hypoparathyroidism. This disease is really hair-raising because the body tries to get the calcium from bones. This is to support the functioning of nerves, heart, brain and muscles.  Signs of Hypocalcemia  Muscle issues  Depression  Poor appetite  Bleeding inside the skin that appears like modest red dabs
  5. 5. Recommended Daily Dosage of Calcium Did you know that the recommended daily dosage of calcium increases with age? Here are the daily recommended amounts for each age group:  Toddlers (ages 1-3): 500 mg daily  Children (ages 4-8): 800 mg daily  Adolescence (ages 9-18): 1300 mg daily  Adults (ages 19-50): 1000 mg daily  Adults ( ages 51 or beyond): 1200 mg daily
  6. 6. Calcium: Useful for Both Men and Women The best natural supplements are beneficial for both men and women. There are many nutrients such as vitamins and minerals that are missing in today’s diet and therefore it becomes necessary to look for some alternatives. Listed below are some warning signs of calcium deficiency:  Joints aching  Eczema  Hypertension  Insomnia  Brittle nails  Heart palpitations  Muscle cramps  Numbness in the legs and arms  Osteoporosis
  7. 7. How to Get More Calcium in Your Diet There’s nothing complex to treating calcium deficiency. There are numerous ways to increase the daily dose of calcium without putting in much elbow grease. Here are three simple suggestions:  Get Enough Vitamin D- The more vitamin D that’s in your body, the more calcium that will be absorbed into your bones and blood stream. You can receive vitamin D from the sun, milk or supplements.  Know when and how to Take Supplements- When you’re not getting enough calcium from your diet, you can turn to supplements that include Vitamin D. The supplements should be taken before you hit bed. Calcium doesn’t absorb effectively when it’s consumed with a meal.  Go Easy on Alcohol and Sodium- It’s been proven by research that binging on alcohol or sodium drives the kidney to eliminate calcium instead of absorbing it.
  8. 8. Warning Signs of Calcium Deficiency:  Joints aching  Eczema  Hypertension  Insomnia  Brittle nails  Heart palpitations  Muscle cramps  Numbness in the legs and arms  Osteoporosis
  9. 9. Benefits of Calcium for Health  Bone up on calcium to prevent osteoporosis  Calcium will keep you slim and trim  Kick PMS to the curb with calcium  Calcium may combat cancer  Calcium is heart-healthy -- in moderation
  10. 10. Top Facts About Calcium Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body.  Calcium is 1.5-2% of our body weight.  98% of all calcium is found in our bones, 1% in our teeth and 1% in other tissues.  Calcium requires many other minerals for healthy bone formation: magnesium, boron, manganese, zinc, copper, silicon, strontium and phosphorus.  Calcium requires vitamins A, C, D and K for optimal metabolism.  Calcium absorption becomes less efficient with age.  Aside from osteoporosis, calcium deficiency can cause kidney stones and allows the body to accumulate lead.  High animal protein (very high in phosphorus) intakes may incrase calcium loss through the intestines and kidneys.  A very high fat intake also inhibits calcium absorption.  Hydrochloric acid helps calcium absorption in the duodenum where most calcium is absorbed.
