Hydration and Electrolyte Minerals (Calcium) are Vital to Good Health

620712_78627659Dr. Robert Heaney, University Professor in the Department of Medicine at Creighton University, said this about calcium;

The best five sources of calcium are food, food, food, fortified food and supplements. In that order, … I strongly recommend getting much of your calcium through food since these foods contain other nutrients the body needs. A body with a low calcium intake is a body that’s low on other nutrients, as well.

So what food offers the best source of calcium? Good sources of calcium include green vegetables, sea vegetables, dairy, bones (as in bone broth used in soups) and seeds especially sesame seeds.

Can you get enough calcium from food?  Generally, yes.  If you suffer from high acidity then it’s possible that a calcium supplement will benefit you as well.  If you do take one, don’t take it on its own because people tend to have too much calcium and not enough magnesium.  Take calcium and magnesium together in ionic angstrom form.

Don’t take conventional calcium tablets such as calcium carbonate, calcium phosphate etc – all of them are inorganic calcium which is bad for your health.  These tablets create calcification in the tissues of the body which leads in the short term to low energy and other problems.

Having sufficient levels of calcium and all four of the electrolyte minerals examined in this series, as well as being sure to be properly hydrated, will go a long way toward replenishing energy and feeling healthier.
