Why is calcium so important?
Calcium is essential for building and maintaining bone. Almost all the body's calcium (about 99%) is found in the bones.
Our bodies cannot make calcium, so it must come from the foods we eat. When you are not getting sufficient amounts of calcium in your diet, some of the calcium crystals in bone dissolve and give their calcium back to the bloodstream.
Calcium intake is important, but it's how well the calcium is absorbed into bones and teeth that's most critical.
Calcium absorption may be reduced by excessive caffeine and alcohol, soft drinks containing phosphates, and diets high in animal proteins.
OPTIMUM BONE DENSITY
Peak bone density is reached by the age of 30 and most of this is achieved by puberty when there is the greatest rate of bone growth. Calcium is essential for:
- maintaining total body health
- normal growth and development
- keeping your bones and teeth strong over your lifetime (they contain 99% of the body's calcium, the remaining 1% is in blood)
- ensuring the proper functioning of muscles and nerves
- keeping the heart beating
- helping blood clotting and regulating blood pressure
- metabolising iron
- the action of a number of hormones (particularly those associated with the thyroid and parathyroid glands)
- cell structure
- absorption of vitamin B12
DO WE NEED VITAMINS D and K?
YES. Vitamins D and K are important nutritional co-factors in calcium metabolism and absorption – vitamin D is naturally produced in the skin from mild exposure to sunlight; this mechanism is thought to be un-reliable though as the process takes place in the sebum, and washing the skin soon after exposure may negate the process. Vitamin D is also obtained from eating foods such as tuna, salmon, sardines, egg yolks or cheese. Vitamin D is stored effectively in the body for use in calcium metabolism.
Similarly, vitamin K is important and best obtained from foods such green peas, carrots, green beans, broccoli, kale and mustard greens - the best source of vitamin K is Hawaiian Pacifica Spirulina which provides 60mcg in one 3g serve.
