List Of Calcium Rich Foods

Benefits And Uses For Calcium:

Calcium is about 2% of your body weight, concentrated in bones and teeth.  Your body also uses it to work muscles, clot blood, process nerve signals, and for proper heart function.  May aid in the treatment of osteoporosis, rickets and periodontal disease 

Deficiency Symptoms Of Calcium:

Calcium has been associated with rickets, osteoporosis and scurvy.  Hypertension may also be associated with Calcium deficiency.  Deficiency symptoms may include excitability, pain in feet, mental disorders, nervousness, irritability, face twitches, high blood pressure.

Toxicity (Overdose) Symptoms Of Calcium:

In extremely high doses, Calcium has been associated with excessive bone calcification and kidney stones.

List Of Calcium Rich Foods:

Artichoke, broccoli, dairy products, dried beans, green leafy vegetables, okra, parsnip, rhubarb, rutabaga, salmon, sardines, tangerines

Supplements Of Calcium:

The recommended amount is easily obtained from a balanced diet.  Factors that may increase the need for calcium are smoking, high protein diet, pregnancy and lactation.  Calcium citrate is thought to be the most beneficial form of supplement, with fewer risks of toxicity.   Avoid multi-mineral supplements that include Iron because it cancels Calcium.

Health And Fitness For Life:

If you're looking to nutrition for health and fitness, you probably want a healthy life...not just body or looks...but mind, body and spirit.  You can renew your mind and spirit with God's help.  He can heal the stuff your diet doesn't control.  If you want His help, go to Healing From God.
