Builds Strong Bones, Prevents Cancer & Osteoporosis, Lowers Blood Pressure
Calcium supplements have long been noted for strong bones but did you know it could also lower blood pressure or even prevent cancer? It seems as if this popular mineral supplement is not being consumed by the general public and those who decide not to consume this important mineral may come to regret it as they get older.
Calcium is generally known for building strong bones and teeth, but its importance to the body goes far beyond strong bones and teeth. Calcium supplements also help maintain cell membranes, helps blood clot, and assists in muscle absorption. Good sources of Calcium are low fat or nonfat dairy products, broccoli, kale, canned salmon with bones,and sardines.
Thirty million Americans have Osteoporosis, 72% are women. This condition is commonly known for its major problem, low bone density. Those with low bone density are highly susceptible to bone fractures. The majority of these fractures occur in the wrist, spine, and hip. Post-menopausal women have become the main target of this insidious condition and complications from Osteoporosis are the leading cause of death for older women. Consuming Calcium supplements or Calcium rich organic foods can possibly save the lives of some of these women.
An extensive study of thousands of men and women revealed that of those who consumed 1000 mg of Calcium supplements a day, a vast majority experienced a reduction in their blood pressure. It’s common knowledge that our blood pressure rises as we get older. An extensive study of over a thousand men showed that consumption of just 375 mg of calcium supplements were associated with a 50% reduction of colon cancer. So it just seems to make good sense to add this life saving mineral to your daily routine. Calcium supplements are a major contributor to herbal health.
