Our team aims to educate the public about the importance of calcium, the risks of its absence for the human body and also bring to your attention the major benefits of calcium ingested in adequate amounts. Last but not least we are trying to prove effectiveness of organic calcium compared to traditional forms of calcium.
Lack of calcium is mildly symptomatic although this mineral has action on the most important functions in the body, Without it life is practically impossible. Calcium participates in a number of important processes in organism:
Heart muscle function – Calcium is essential for both the skeletal and smooth muscle, the vessel walls and internal organs. Calcium is a mineral that helps in processes of muscle fibers contraction, but also in regulating the membrane potential in cardiac muscle fibers (myocardium) – thus preventing tachycardia and arrhythmias Skeletal muscle disorders or cardiac disorders occur especially in the absence of calcium
Bones – Increases bone health and prevents a series of bone diseases; – Calcium is involved in regulating endocrine functions, stimulating the increase / decrease of hormones secretion. Calcium is involved in rickets (in children) or acromegaly (in adults). Lack of calcium can lead to bone growth delays and dystrophic bone formation- “rosary rib” asymmetrical prominent skull or breastbone. The skeleton can undergo reversible deformation or irreversible, which can lead to osteoporosis or spontaneous fracture predisposition.
Brain – Influences nerve function and brain function. Lack of calcium can give different behavioral disorders, from anxiety and irritability to depression and hallucinations. It can also manifest as as tremor, palpitations, insomnia or drowsiness, faintness (fainting a few seconds does not imply the total loss of consciousness), memory loss and decreased memory and attention capacity. It can also can also lead to symptoms such as numbness in the limbs, tingling in fingers, hands or feet. Spasmophilia is common especially among young women.
Skin – A well balanced calcium concentration means healthy skin, nails and hair. Lack of calcium leads to dryness and thickening of the skin, and slightly brittle flaking nails. Lack of calcium influences the health of the hair: it falls more, tends to be thinner and it becomes brittle. Hair and nails increase can also be delayed.
Other organs – Lack of calcium causes muscle spasms, felt as strong pain manifested by prolonged muscle contractions (usually in the legs) that last from seconds to minutes, then disappears spontaneously. Also the lack of calcium is manifested by “struggle” of eyes or lips. Tremor may also be present. Because of muscle alterations gastrointestinal disorders may occur, influencing both the autonomic nervous system and smooth muscle function disorder of the digestive organs. This can lead to a decreased appetite which results in fatigue. Women who suffer from calcium deficiency disorders will have both genital and endocrine functions affected, presenting more pronounced, longer lasting bleedings and emphasized menstrual pain.
