There is a myth that calcium is the main mineral you need for osteoporosis and to strengthen your bones.
The majority of what makes up bone is collagen, which is protein. There is calcium in your bones, but it’s tied up with phosphorus.
In some interesting studies, they found that taking calcium doesn’t prevent bone fractures. There is also strong evidence that taking a calcium supplement can increase the risk of cardiovascular problems.
It’s essential to get enough vitamins, minerals, and trace minerals in your diet. The most important vitamins for bone health are vitamin D and vitamin K2.
Another factor in your bone health is your hormones. For example, a deficiency in estrogen or high cortisol can lead to osteoporosis.
Bone loss isn’t contributed to one thing. Overall, to build bone, you need to focus on creating a healthy body.
The best source of calcium to help strengthen the bones is dairy. But, a combination of plants and dairy is great for supporting healthy calcium levels.
Signs and symptoms of a calcium deficiency:
• Muscle spasms
• Changes in heart rate
• Numbness around the mouth
• Numbness in the fingertips and feet
• Spasm in the larynx (hoarseness, rough-sounding voice, a lump in the throat)
• Consuming excessive amounts of protein, sodium, coffee, soft drinks, and refined sugar
Calcium is needed for your health, but it may be best to get it from food. One of the biggest health benefits of calcium is that it may help prevent certain intestinal cancers. Keep in mind that you need plenty of vitamin D and magnesium to absorb calcium.
