IN THE BODY
In order for Calcium to be absorbed properly, an ample amount
of Vitamin D is essential.
Without the proper amount of Calcium, the body will experience
weak bones and shaky nerves. There is also a chance that a
deficiency in this area will lead to colon cancer or pre-eclampsia
Natural forms of Calcium are found in dairy products and
vegetables (mostly lettuce, spinach and other such greens).
- Men (14-18) 1300 mg (Over 50) 1200 mg
- Women (14-18) 1000 mg (Over 50) 1200 mg
- During pregnancy (1000 mg)
- During Lactation (1000 mg)
If taken in excess, you may experience vomiting, and nausea.
It may also cause damages to the muscles and kidneys.
Magnesium and Phosphorus help Calcium perform its functions inside the body.
Calcium supplements are used to prevent heart disease,
high blood pressure, damaged kidneys,
treat stones (either kidney or bladder) or help with
dehydration and constipation. Osteoporosis can
also be treated with these supplements.
If you have a history of any of the above mentioned body
malfunctions, you should consult a doctor before taking any supplements
