Calcium is the mineral needed most by the body. It’s most important purpose is to build and maintain strong, healthy bones and teeth. But it’s also absolutely essential for healthy blood, muscle growth and contraction, the nervous system, easing insomnia and helping to regulate the heartbeat.
Additionally, calcium is needed to maintain the acid / alkaline pH balance of the body. When the body is acidic, it creates an environment that promotes inflammation and disease. The body uses calcium as a buffer to reduce the acidity. Without enough calcium the body will pull it out of the muscles and even demineralize bones to collect what it needs.
There are many illnesses that can come from calcium deficiency. This includes nervous system disorders, osteoporosis, thyroid problems and bone malformations. Other signs of deficiency are tooth decay, impaired growth, muscle cramps, heart palpitations, blood pressure problems, insomnia, problems with menopause, headaches, and menstrual cramps.
Most calcium supplements use calcium carbonate, which is poorly absorbed by the body and often sourced from rocks.
