To think calcium is better for bones is wrong. This is just one of many needed minerals for us. Magnesium is more important said studies from the Pediatric academic societies in USA.
Look at calcium again
Standard engines told us calcium is vital for bones and old myths say this makes solid bones and teeth. But, is this supplement viable?
A study of 2004 said people with excess calcium in the coronary artery and taking statins, have 17 times more risk of attack than those with less calcium. The 2 signs of possible attack are bad cholesterol increase and calcium deposits.
- A study of 2007 said calcium from foods is better for the bones than supplements.
- A study of 2008 said calcium supplements are linked to heart attacks after menopause.
- A study of 2010 said calcium supplements without vitamin D are linked to heart attacks.
As per National osteoporosis foundation NOF, food is the best source of minerals or calcium. Those who get this from foods are in no need of supplements. Still they might need vitamin D supplement. Too much calcium makes kidney stones and other issues.
Calcium pills are embraced by doctors like being safe and good for osteoporosis, reported experts lead by prof. Sabrine Rohrmann, Zurich University social preventive medicine.
It is clear that taking this mineral daily is not natural and has bad effects on metabolism compared to foods.
The big part of such pills on the market have calcium carbonate, secondary calcium and chelating agent (citrus extract) for better absorbing. But calcium orotate being the final item is second grade.
Another thing is that many of us are ignorant due to dairy business, dairy items, milk, cheese and we are told this makes calcium. This is false. Purification methods here make calcium carbonate, not useful without chelating agent.
The body forces calcium from the bones and tissues and the end goal is to cushion calcium in blood. This makes osteoporosis. Milk has no link to strong bones.
The new info comes from prof. Steven Abrams and experts of Baylor college of medicine, Houston. They said ingestion of Mg in youth is key for healthy bones and thick bones. Diet calcium sources are not linked so much to this.
The Mg of foods is crucial too but overlooked in kids.
Many nutrients are vital for kids, one is Mg said Abrams. Calcium is also vital but not as much as Mg.
Experts said that parents have to claim they gave the kid calcium, but this is wrong. Mg is more needed for the bones.
Abrams and the experts said parents have to claim they gave the kid Mg now.
Mg admission means dense mineral in bones BMD, both men and women. Also increase of 2% BMD in the body for every 100 mg Mg daily.
The osteoporosis fractures are critical for adults said Dr. Kathryn M. Ryder, Tennessee university, Memphis. Low BMD makes fractures and BMD changes have a good effect on us.
Mg has to be more examined in the bones.
For the most part, calcium magnesium proportion was 1:1. This or 2:1 is fine, like 800 mg calcium and 400 mg magnesium. Sadly, this is not the case. Weight control plans involve 10 times more calcium!
Mg is in many shapes. Mg oxide is ok, also chelated Mg. the packs are 250-500 mg Mg.
Also get calcium + magnesium pills. The RDA for Mg is 350400 mg daily but ideally you need double.
Take Mg isolated all day long. Empty belly or with meals, you choose.
Also add Epsom in the bath, magnesium sulfate form. This goes in the skin and refreshes Mg stores.
1% of the human Mg is in the blood and we get this from bones and tissues if the Mg drops. This means blood test can show it.
The best Mg source is always food. Have green dark leafy veggies, seeds, nuts, cacao and such.
