Dive into the facts about Calcium

Calcium can be found at different places in our body.

  • 99% out of all the Calcium in our body are stored in our bones and teeth.
  • 1% were consists of:

                   (i)  Ionized Calcium that circulates to our body parts that
                          needed it.

                   (ii) Unionized Calcium that were stored inside the body
                          fluids, tissues, bloods and nerve cells.

Calcium can be obtained naturally in many kinds of foods and also supplement.

Natural source of Calcium:

  1. Milk products (Milk, Cheese, Yogurt,...)
  2. Green leafs vegetables
  3. Oysters

Foods and Drinks that is rich in Calcium:

  1. Cereals
  2. Biscuits
  3. Orange or Apple Juice
  4. Healthy Drinks such as milk and Soya drinks
  5. High fiber breads.

Other sources of Calcium:

  • Calcium supplement
  • MultiVitamin

Out of all the sources mentioned above, the easiest way to get Calcium is by taking the Calcium supplement.  Calcium supplement is created for the sole purpose of making sure the Calcium requirements of our body was fulfilled.  We do not have to worry about it because research had been done in order to give the best to the consumer's body.  

If we depend on natural food only, I am not sure if it can provide ample Calcium supply to our body.  This is due to the downgrade of the natural foods' nutrition contents that were down graded by our own technology to "mass produce" it..

In that case, spesific food for specific requirements need to be consumed.

Well, the decision is still in your hand because you are the "Boss of your own body" .. ^^
Take a wise decision is what you should do..
