Early stages of calcium deficiency do not show symptoms until the total calcium level in our body falls well below normal (6.7 mg/dL). This is why a lot of us are not aware we suffer from a nutritional disorder.
Most of the times, we experience health issues that--we didn’t know—are brought by lack of nutrients in the body. Although these signs can be treated through proper medications, it will still recur if the underlying cause is not treated:
- Sleeping Problems- According to a study, individuals who are unable to achieve a deep sleep can be suffering from hypocalcemia, a condition characterized by below normal levels of calcium in the blood. This is due to calcium’s role in manufacturing sleep hormones.
- Weight Loss Problems- The calcium stored in cells regulates the processing of fat in the body. The more calcium the fat contains, the easier it is to burn.
- Paresthesia- This is a medical condition that affects our nervous system and is characterized by tingling, numbness, muscle tremors, and/or an impaired sense of touch.
As we get older, our body’s ability to absorb calcium changes. While we’re still young, eating a balanced diet with foods that are rich in calcium and taking calcium supplements is the best way to keep our bones strong and healthy.
Bentonite clay is used as a traditional detoxification tool because of its ability to remove toxins from the body. It is rich in potassium, calcium, magnesium, and other trace minerals that, when ingested, can act as a supplement that replaces the missing nutrients needed by the body.
