Are You Calcium Deficient?

Posted by Ruby Tequin on

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.
