Calcium Deficiency from Taking Calcium?

Home / Ask Desiree / Calcium Deficiency from Taking Calcium?

calcium deficiency rocksYou may believe calcium deficiency can exist but did you know that calcium can cause it?

Supplement sales at an all-time crescendo indicate deficiencies are on the rise. Whether from soil depletion or just plan not eating the right foods, vitamin and mineral deficiencies run rampant, prompting supplementation. Calcium deficiency, however, presents a rather unique situation. For there are two ways taking calcium supplements can prolong the deficient condition and only one way they can be effective.

Are you taking calcium, or just rocks?

While, coming from mines, minerals can be considered “rocks”, many are essential to diet, especially calcium. Calling it “calcium” however, is a misnomer, as it is actually a compound. Compounds are “mixtures” of several substances. The difference between two popular calcium compounds is the difference between body absorption and an unwanted deposit. The two compounds are calcium gluconate and carbonate, of which gluconate is essential. Supplements based on calcium carbonate are, to the body, just rocks. The results are the difference between body function and breakdown.

Calcium is not a “lone mineral” and needs a sidekick…

Even when taking calcium gluconate, the body yet requires further supplementation: magnesium. Magnesium is essential in proper ratio to calcium for calcium to be effective. This is a delicate balance, the absence of which can create calcium deficiency.

Calcium deficiency is a problem of chemistry…

Technically, there is a third condition further complicating the absorption of calcium by the body: pH. Calcium and magnesium in proper form yet require an acid to be effective. The pH balance so achieved makes these minerals ready for use and sets them to action.

Calcium deficiency is not so complicated after all…

The complexity of calcium simplifies rather quickly when two or three points about it are understood. Getting the proper calcium compound, used in conjunction with magnesium in precise ratio, with an acid to aid the absoption process is the simplicity of calcium supplementation.
