Calcium is one of the most critically important minerals. Beyond its bone building properties, calcium also plays an essential role in a multitude of other internal processes including blood circulation, muscular contraction, brain function and the development of the central nervous system.
At the best of times, it's challenging for a developing body to get enough calcium. Unfortunately, our modern diet only complicates the problem. Refined and overly processed foods not only contribute little to your calcium intake, but they also cause your blood pH to become more acidic. This ultimately causes a leaching effect where calcium is withdrawn from your bones in an attempt to buffer and restore your proper blood pH. In North America, carbonated soft drinks have surpassed milk and fruit juice in popularity and has become the most consumed beverage of choice by children. Soft drinks in particular are notorious for acidifying blood pH and exaggerating this problem. Research has shown the number of fractures among children has increased as a direct result of poor calcium intake.Â¹
Although a balanced diet provides a sound nutritional base, even one that includes foods like green leafy vegetables, broccoli, almonds and salmon, it doesn't offer a complete solution. Our commercial farmlands are being continuously depleted of critical minerals like calcium, reducing the potency of the produce that we consume. An active lifestyle that helps the bones retain their calcium stores along with a comprehensive calcium supplement complements a sound and wisely chosen diet.
