Fact: The type of calcium supplements you take can greatly impact the amount of calcium your body absorbs
Most calcium supplements are synthetically produced and contain chemical compounds that the body does not recognise and thus does not absorb and utilize effectively. Additionally, the way synthetic supplements are made go against the way nature works. Nature always packages vitamins in groups for better digestion, absorption and utilization. For this reason, naturally occurring vitamins and minerals found in organic foods and 100% plant or food-based supplements provide far more benefits than synthetic supplements.
Fact: Most of us do not consume enough calcium in our diet
Calcium is an essential mineral for strong bones and the optimal functioning of the heart, muscles, and nerves. However, according to Singapore’s Health Promotion Board, more than 63% of Singaporeans aged 18 to 69 years old do not consume the recommended daily levels of calcium, putting them at risk of low bone mass, which may result in high fracture rates and the development of osteoporosis.
Our bodies cannot make calcium, so it must come from the foods we eat. Green calcium capsules may be an option if your diet does not contain enough calcium.
Who should consider calcium supplements?
- Past the age of 30 years, getting enough calcium each day continues to be important. The older you get, the greater the loss of calcium from your bones.
- Certain groups of people may find it difficult to get enough calcium even if they follow a balanced and healthy diet. These include individuals who adopts a vegan diet, or who are lactose intolerance, or has digestive diseases that decrease the ability to absorb calcium, such as inflammatory bowel disease or celiac disease. People who consume large amounts of protein or sodium or has undergone long-term treatment with corticosteroids may also face difficulties in absorbing enough calcium.
