Deficiency, Are You At Risk?
is essential for normal functioning of the whole body.
In fact, it is the number one mineral by quantity
needed by the human body. And, over time, the average
person becomes more and more depleted of calcium.
By age 40, over 50% of Americans are seriously calcium
deficient and by the age of 60, over 90% of Americans
are calcium deficient.
As a result of calcium deficiency, the body must steal
calcium from the only place it can, its emergency
reserves...the bones. This leads to osteoporosis which
then leads to pain, fractures, impaired physical ability
and many other symptoms.
These declines are proof positive that most Americans
are not getting enough ionized, absorbable calcium
in their diets. In fact, research shows that over
80% of chronic disease is diet related. And yet, the
typical American diet remains high in saturated fats,
excessive animal proteins, refined flour, and refined
sugar. Even if you maintain healthy eating habits
and enjoy a diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables,
you are probably not getting enough of the calcium
your body requires.
Irresponsible farming techniques over the last few
decades have left our once rich and fertile soil depleted
of minerals and our foods poisoned with toxic chemicals.
There are over one billion pounds of pesticides used
per year (that's over 400 pounds per person!)
Dairy products were once thought to be a good source
of calcium; however, commercial dairy products are
loaded with residues of antibiotics, growth hormones,
and other chemicals. They are made with milk that
is pasteurized, homogenized and tainted with synthetic
vitamins. Dairy products as a source of calcium are
out of the question.
The bottom line: our food sources are nutrient-deficient
and loaded with toxins.
Are You Calcium
has shown that 98% of the population is calcium deficient.
Unless you are currently taking an ionized form of
calcium and are maintaining an alkaline pH between
6.4 and 7.0, you are calcium deficient.
Common symptoms of calcium deficiency include, but
are not limited to, the following:
And the list goes on...
In fact, it is believed
that there are over 200 degenerative diseases and medical
conditions that are directly related to calcium deficiency.
- Alzheimer's Disease
- Arteriosclerosis Arthritis
- Bleeding Gums
- Bone Spurs (Calcium
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Heart Disease
- Heart Palpitations
- Hiatal Hernias
- High Cholesterol
- Hypertension (High
- Joint Pain
- Kidney Stones
- Muscle Cramps
What Are Your Options?
If you have
any signs of calcium deficiency, you have only three
options: to ignore the warning signs, to take prescription
drugs, or to supplement your diet with calcium.
To ignore the warning signs of calcium deficiency
(or any other mineral deficiency for that matter)
is dangerous. No one wants poor quality health and
a life of aches and pains and agony. That's why many
people turn to prescription drugs for relief.
Over the last several years, many new drugs have been
introduced to alleviate the symptoms of calcium deficiency,
slow bone loss, and even block calcium absorption;
however, masking symptoms with drugs is a deadly practice
with a host of side affects. The real problem, though,
is these drugs simply treat the symptoms; they do
not get to the root of the problem.
Just how dangerous are prescription drugs? In 1999,
the American Medical Association's own study listed
the use of properly prescribed medical drugs as
the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States
(probably because of the life-shortening side effects).
The final option is to supplement your diet with calcium.
But, herein lies another problem. Most calcium supplements
on the market today consist of ground-up oyster shells,
an extremely poor source of calcium for the human
body. In fact, research shows that this type of calcium
is 99% unassimilable. This means your body cannot
absorb and utilize it. Manufacturers even mix their
calcium products with dissolving chemicals and pig
digestive enzymes in order to trick your body into
accepting it. Why in the world would you use a dietary
supplement that your body clearly does not want and
then try to trick your body into accepting it?
Even more alarming is the fact that taking these
poor quality calcium supplements actually causes you
to become more calcium deficient. Your body must
actually deplete its own precious calcium reserves
to rid itself of the toxic calcium you are taking.
hope! Unlike other forms of calcium, Coral Calcium
is naturally ionized for easy absorption, naturally
contains a 2:1 ratio of calcium to magnesium and will
correct the acid/alkaline imbalance in the body. Once
the body is in an alkaline state, there is greater
absorption of other nutrients the body requires and
you will have a healthy body, free from chronic disease
Health Hound, Inc. encourages you to do
your research. There is a ton of information on the
web about coral calcium and calcium deficiency. Be
proactive and not reactive. Buffer your body with
coral calcium even before you have chronic symptoms.
If you already have health issues, take the first
step toward better health...maintain an alkaline pH
between 6.4 and 7.0 and allow your body to heal itself.
