Take your Calcium!

How does your Calcium intake measure up?

According to recent studies an alarming percentage of Americans are Calcium deficient; 75% to be precise!
Take Your Calcium!
This data uncovers a latent crisis that costs the healthcare system, as well as individuals, millions of dollars (and health-related headaches) that could potentially be saved if we all gave an adequate daily supply of Calcium to our bodies.
In an article published in by the New York Times, titled “Calcium Takes Its Place As a Supertar of Nutrients,” Jane E. Brody asserts that “no major organ system escapes its [Calcium] influence.”
Brody states that the relationship between Calcium and our bodies can be explained by the argument proposed by Dr. Hector F. DeLuca, a well known biochemist from the University of Wisconsin and expert in Calcium and Vitamin D metabolism, who believes that the Humans’ dependency on Calcium stems from the fact that we evolved as organisms originated from life in the sea under an abundant supply of this precious mineral.
Human organs have evolved to be dependent on Calcium to carry healthy body functions. Unhealthy levels of calcium in the blood trigger a defense mechanism that leads to “borrowing” of Calcium stored in the bones and other organs, which in turn can become the cause a number of conditions like osteoporosis, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, hypertension, PMS and even multiple kinds of cancer. 
In order to avoid an unhealthy “drainage” of this vital mineral from our bones and major organs, it is advised to continuously supply our body with Calcium (and Vitamin D which enables Calcium to enter the blood) proportionate to our age and following the chart below:
Dairy products are a great source of Calcium; however, green leafy vegetables like Spinach and Broccoli, nuts, fish and legumes, as well as foods fortified with Calcium and Calcium supplements, can be excellent sources of this important mineral.
Appendix 14 of the 2010 Dietary Guideline for Americans (pg. 89) gives an extensive list of select food sources ranked by amounts of calcium and calories per standard food portion.

In addition to Alegria Plus I would like to highlight the importance of Vitamin D and B Vitamins. Deficiencies in both have been linked to depression! Studies suggest that taking doses of 5,000 IUs can significant impact ones quality of life.

Vitamin D and B Vitamins, particularly Vitamin B12, have beneficial effects that extend to a wide range of metabolic functions in different body systems (Immune, Cardiovascular and Nervous Systems).
