The simple act of taking Vitamins with Minerals can promote bad health. Metals, when added to the body, must be bound to a metalloenzyme. Enzymes are like the horse pulling a cart (the metal) to where it belongs and can be used by the body. When the body is unable to respond with the proper metalloenzyme, bad health can occur.
Calcium not only makes up your bones, it's also found in your nerves, muscles and most of the cells in your body. Calcium, along with other vitamins and metals, are in water and almost everything you eat.
Here is another surprise. There are two common forms of calcium and dozens of chemical compounds of calcium. One good, the other very bad. This is a well kept secret in the medical and water industry. Tens of billions of dollars are being made in hospitals because of heart bad health and selling water softeners that use salt to remove the good calcium from water.
There are more than 60 chemical forms of calcium: Calcium acetate, Calcium benzoate, Calcium Bromate, Carbonate, Chlorate, Chloride, Chromate, Fluoride, Hydroxide, Oxide, Nitrite, and on and on. Your body needs calcium, but the calcium it needs has to be water soluble, digestible, and recognized by the body. From there, the body then has to chemically process it. All calcium is not water soluble, nor is it digestible or recognizable by the body, therefore, the body is unable to process it effectively.
Water, milk, cheese and vegetables are the best source of calcium.
1. Calcium Carbonate (Bad) - causes scale and plaque. Coral Calcium is a carbonate based calcium.
2. Calcium Bicarbonate (Very Good and very water soluble) - found in meats, fruits and vegetables this calcium builds strong bones when it is properly bound to enzymes and converted by the body.
There is a big difference between the many types of calcium. My wife went in for a check up, her Doctor said she had osteoporosis and was losing bone mass, he prescribed calcium carbonate pills. A few days after taking the calcium she started to get a bone spur on her foot. She called her doctor and he said "she will need to see a foot specialist". I told her to stop taking the calcium pills. She stopped and the next day her foot was better, three days later the spur was completely gone. Should she have taken a different calcium like calcium citrate? No, she did not need more calcium she needed the enzymes essential for control of the calcium that was already in her body. She was taking the bad Calcium (Carbonate)
Limestone, clam shells and marble are like the scale in your plumbing, which is known as calcium carbonate. This form of calcium is not soluble in water and is not bio-available. When calcium is taken in the bad form like calcium carbonate, the body tends to put it anywhere it wants to.
IF Bad Calcium builds up in the arteries can restrict blood flow to the heart and brain which may cause major health issues.
Bad Calcium may cause gallstones, kidney stones, buildup in the joints as arthritis. It may even be responsible for diabetes and hypoglycemia.
