Minerals are nutrients that exist in the body and in food. Minerals are vital to overall mental and physical well-being. All tissues and internal fluids of living things contain varying quantities of minerals. Minerals are constituents of the bones, teeth, soft tissue, muscle, blood and nerve cells. They are important factors in maintaining physiological processes, strengthening skeletal structure and preserving vigour of the heart and brain as well as muscle and nerve systems. They help maintain water and fluid balance and keep blood and tissue fluids from becoming too acid or too alkaline, and permit other nutrients to pass into the blood-stream. This is one supplement everyone could use for their own Mineral Insurance.
The greatest need for Calcium occurs from the ages of 12 to 15 years of age (1000-1200mg of Calcium per day). Pregnant & breastfeeding women require a minimum of 1500 mg per day. The average adult requires 800 mg per day, increasing to 1000 mg per day during Menopause. Low levels of calcium increase the risk of hypertension or high blood pressure. Severe deficiency can lead to abnormal heart beat, dementia and convulsions. When there is not enough calcium absorbed in the body, the output of estrogen decreases. As is the case with postmenopausal women, older men are often deficient in calcium.
Other people who may be at risk for deficiencies are those who use antacids that contain aluminium; those who are alcohol drinkers; those on diets that are low calorie, high protein, or high fibre; those who are lactose intolerant; those who use cortisone; women who are pregnant and those who are basically inactive. Moderate cases of calcium deficiency may lead to cramps, joint pains, heart palpitations, increased cholesterol levels, slow pulse rates, insomnia, impaired growth, excessive irritability or nerves, muscle cramps, brittle nails, eczema and numbness of the arms and or legs.
What health problems can calcium help with? Calcium is a natural tranquilliser and tends to calm the nerves: when taken 20-40 minutes before bedtime it can help to promote a deeper sleep. The production of energy and the maintenance of the immune system benefit from calcium. Taking 1500mg of calcium per day has seen a reduction in blood pressure. In addition, calcium (in conjunction with magnesium & zinc) is a recognised aid for muscle cramps in the feet or legs. Problems of menopause such as nervousness, irritability, insomnia and headaches have been overcome with administration of calcium, magnesium and vitamin D. Prevention of premenstrual tension and menstrual cramps has been shown.
