Description:

Calcium provides the building blocks that help keep bones and teeth strong and healthy. It also supports the health of the heart, musculoskeletal and nervous systems. Magnesium helps to regulate calcium transport and stimulates the secretion of calcitonin, a hormone that aids in the influx of calcium into bone. It plays an important role in protein formation and healthy muscle function.

Calcium is a mineral, essential for your body to work properly, notably for the bones growth. But not only. Let's have a look at the other benefits of this mineral:

Benefits for health

  • For strong bones: Calcium helps to keep the bones in their proper shape and reduces risk of health problems such as arthritis and osteoporosis. It also alleviates the presence of back pain.
  • Obesity: Calcium efficiently helps in maintaining optimal body weight in both males and females. Lack of calcium indeed results in the production of a hormone that stimulates the production of fat.
  • Premenstrual syndrome: Taking a calcium supplement lessens the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome, such as mood swings, hypertension or dizziness for example. Low levels of calcium might lead to the release of hormones responsible for premenstrual syndrome, notably depression or irritability.
  • Heart health: Calcium protects your heart. Sufficient intake of calcium can help cardiac muscles to properly contract and relax. Calcium also helps your body to maintain the proper blood pressure in your arteries.
  • For healthy teeth and gums: Calcium protects your teeth. It keeps the jawbone strong throughout your life. This reduces the risk of infection by bacteria.
  • To avoid colon cancer: Using a calcium supplement reduces the risk of colon cancer, as calcium binds with the tumors in the colon, and facilitates their excretion.
