Effect of shellfish calcium on the apparent absorption of calcium and bone metabolism in ovariectomized rats. (1/1438)

Fossil shellfish powder (FS) and Ezo giant scallop shell powder (EG) were rendered soluble with lactate and citrate under decompression (FSEx and EGEx, respectively) and we examined the effects of lactate-citrate solubilization of FS and EG on mineral absorption, tissue mineral contents, serum biochemical indices and bone mineral density (BMD) in ovariectomized (OVX) rats. The apparent absorption ratios of minerals tended to be high in the rats fed with the solubilized mineral sources, those in the FSEx group being significantly higher than in the FS group. There was no significant difference in the tibia mineral content among the OVX groups. BMD at the distal femoral diaphysis was significantly increased by FSEx and EGEx feeding. It is suggested that solubilization with lactate and citrate under decompression increased the solubility and bioavailability of calcium from such natural sources of shellfish calcium as FS and EG.  (+info)

Dietary magnesium, not calcium, regulates renal thiazide receptor. (2/1438)

This study reports for the first time a relationship between dietary Mg and the renal thiazide-sensitive Na-Cl cotransporter (TZR, measured by saturation binding with 3H-metolazone). Ion-selective electrodes measured plasma ionized magnesium (PMg++), calcium (PCa++), and potassium (PK+). Restricting dietary Mg for 1 wk decreased PMg++ 18%, TZR 25%, and renal excretion of magnesium (UMg) and calcium (UCa) more than 50% without changing PCa++, PK+, or plasma aldosterone. A low Mg diet for 1 d significantly decreased PMg++, TZR, UMg and UCa. Return of dietary Mg after 5 d of Mg restriction restored PMg++ and TZR toward normal. In the control, Mg-deficient, and Mg-repleting animals, TZR correlated with PMg++ (r = 0.86) and with UMg (r = 0.87) but not UCa (r = 0.09). Increasing oral intake of Mg for 1 wk increased PMg++ 14%, TZR 32%, UMg 74%, and UCa more than fourfold without changing PCa++ or PK+. In contrast, increasing dietary Ca content from 0.02% to 1.91% did not change TZR, but increased UCa fivefold without changing PCa++. Hormonal mediators (if any) involved in the relationship between dietary Mg and TZR remain to be elucidated, as does the relationship between TZR and tubular reabsorption of Mg.  (+info)

Dietary soybeans intake and bone mineral density among 995 middle-aged women in Yokohama. (3/1438)

To investigate relationship of dietary factors, especially source of calcium intake, to bone mineral density (BMD) among Japanese middle-aged women, a total of 995 healthy women age of 40 to 49 (mean +/- SD, 45 +/- 3), who lives in Yokohama-city, were recruited through convenience sampling by the municipal information paper and health announcement at each 18 public health center in 18 wards for the three-day course on prevention of osteoporosis from October 1996 to March 1998. The BMD of the 2nd metacarpal bone was measured using Computed X-ray Densitometry (CXD) method, by a trained radiologist. Dietary intake of calcium was assessed by self-reporting food frequency questionnaire on calcium dietary sources such as milk, dairy products, small fish, vegetables, and soybeans and carefully checked by trained dietician. An independent gradient of non-adjusted and adjusted BMD for age and weekly calcium intake, through soybeans intake frequency (p = 0.03) was noted. This study suggest soybeans, through possible beneficial effects of vitamin-K, soyprotein, and isoflavonoid, may affect BMD of middle aged women.  (+info)

Taking a nutrition history: a practical approach for family physicians. (4/1438)

The association between nutrition and health has been clearly documented. Primary care physicians are expected to address nutrition and dietary behavior issues with their patients in the context of a brief clinical encounter. This article proposes the use of a short interview form, with specific suggestions for behavior changes that family physicians can use to help their patients meet currently accepted dietary guidelines. Answers to the questions on the interview form provide the physician with an overall sense of the patient's daily eating habits and help to identify major sources of saturated fat in the patient's diet. The patient is asked about the number of meals and snacks eaten in a 24-hour period, dining-out habits and frequency of consumption of fruits, vegetables, meats, poultry, fish, dairy products and desserts. Documentation of dietary changes can be accomplished using the suggested nutrition history form, and improvements in nutritional status can be measured using weight, blood pressure and laboratory test data.  (+info)

Calcium intake is weakly but consistently negatively associated with iron status in girls and women in six European countries. (5/1438)

Several studies indicate that intake of calcium can inhibit iron absorption especially when taken simultaneously. In the CALEUR study, a cross-sectional study among girls (mean 13.5 y) and young women (mean 22.0 y) in six European countries, the association between calcium intake and iron status was studied. In 1,080 girls and 524 women, detailed information on calcium intake was collected by means of a 3-d food record, and serum ferritin, serum iron, serum transferrin and transferrin saturation were measured as indicators of iron status. The mean levels of serum iron, ferritin and transferrin were 15.8 +/- 6.1 mmol/L, 34.5 +/- 19.1 microg/L and 3. 47 +/- 0.47 g/L, respectively, in girls and 16.9 +/- 7.5 mmol/L, 40. 2 +/- 30.5 and microg/L, 3.59 +/- 0.60 g/L, respectively, in women. A consistent inverse association between calcium intake and serum ferritin was found, after adjusting the linear regression model for iron intake, age, menarche, protein, tea and vitamin C intake and country, irrespective of whether calcium was ingested simultaneously with iron. The adjusted overall regression coefficients for girls and women were -0.57 +/- 0.20 and -1.36 +/- 0.46 per 100 mg/d increase in calcium intake, respectively. Only in girls, transferrin saturation as a measure for short-term iron status was inversely associated with calcium intake (adjusted overall coefficient -0.18 +/- 0.08). However, analysis per country separately showed no consistency. We conclude that dietary calcium intake is weakly inversely associated with blood iron status, irrespective of whether calcium was ingested simultaneously with iron.  (+info)

Excessive Ca and P intake during early maturation in dogs alters Ca and P balance without long-term effects after dietary normalization. (6/1438)

Calcium (Ca) and phosphorus (P) balance is important for skeletal development. Although the effects of deficiencies are well known, reports on the effects of excessive Ca and P supply are relatively scarce. Epidemiologic data and a few controlled studies have shown that skeletal abnormalities may develop when Ca intake is excessive, particularly in periods of rapid growth. Changes in Ca and P balance during and/or after a high Ca intake are thought to underlie this phenomenon. In this study, the effects of excessive Ca (3.1 g/kg dry matter) or Ca and P (Ca 3.1 g/kg, P 2.8 g/kg) intake on Ca and P balance in young, rapidly growing dogs during (for the period from 3 to 17 wk of age) and after (for the period from 17 to 27 wk of age) high Ca and P intake were compared with findings in age-matched controls with normal Ca and P intakes (Ca 1.0 g/kg, P 0.8 g/kg). Dogs fed a high Ca diet developed hypercalcemia, and food intake and fractional absorption of Ca and P were significantly lower at 15 wk of age, whereas endogenous fecal and renal Ca excretion were significantly higher than in controls. This resulted in significantly higher Ca retention than in controls only at 9 wk of age, and in disproportionate absorption of Ca and P. In dogs fed a high Ca and P diet, normocalcemia was maintained, fractional absorption of Ca and P were significantly lower at 9 and 15 wk of age, but retention of both was significantly higher at 9 wk than in controls. The endogenous fecal Ca and renal P losses were significantly higher, but renal Ca excretion was not different from that in controls. After normalization of Ca and P intake, Ca and P balance did not differ among groups. In conclusion, excessive Ca and P intake during early maturation alters Ca and P balance, but does not influence Ca and P balance after dietary normalization.  (+info)

Morphometric evidence that YM175, a bisphosphonate, reduces trabecular bone resorption in ovariectomized dogs with dietary calcium restriction. (7/1438)

We examined mechanisms by which incadronate disodium (YM175) prevented bone resorption in ovariectomized dogs with dietary calcium restriction using the morphometrical method. YM175 (0.01-1.0 mg/kg) was given to ovariectomized dogs for 18 months. Because lumbar bone mineral density remained constant at month 17, we assumed that the trabecular bone resorption rate was equal to the bone formation rate and that wall thickness equaled resorption cavity depth. YM175 decreased both the bone resorption rate per number of osteoclasts and resorption cavity depth of cancellous pockets which were increased in ovariectomized dogs. These results suggest that YM175 reduces bone loss by decreasing the resorbing activity of osteoclasts.  (+info)

Lifestyle modifications to prevent and control hypertension. 6. Recommendations on potassium, magnesium and calcium. Canadian Hypertension Society, Canadian Coalition for High Blood Pressure Prevention and Control, Laboratory Centre for Disease Control at Health Canada, Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada. (8/1438)

OBJECTIVE: To provide updated, evidence-based recommendations on the consumption, through diet, and supplementation of the cations potassium, magnesium and calcium for the prevention and treatment of hypertension in otherwise healthy adults (except pregnant women). OPTIONS: Dietary supplementation with cations has been suggested as an alternative or adjunctive therapy to antihypertensive medications. Other options include other nonpharmacologic treatments for hypertension. OUTCOMES: The health outcomes considered were changes in blood pressure and in morbidity and mortality rates. Because of insufficient evidence, no economic outcomes were considered. EVIDENCE: A MEDLINE search was conducted for the period 1966-1996 with the terms hypertension and potassium, magnesium and calcium. Reports of trials, meta-analyses and review articles were obtained. Other relevant evidence was obtained from the reference lists of articles identified, from the personal files of the authors and through contacts with experts. The articles were reviewed, classified according to study design, and graded according to the level of evidence. VALUES: A high value was placed on the avoidance of cardiovascular morbidity and premature death caused by untreated hypertension. BENEFITS, HARMS AND COSTS: The weight of the evidence from randomized controlled trials indicates that increasing intake of or supplementing the diet with potassium, magnesium or calcium is not associated with prevention of hypertension, nor is it effective in reducing high blood pressure. Potassium supplementation may be effective in reducing blood pressure in patients with hypokalemia during diuretic therapy. RECOMMENDATIONS: For the prevention of hypertension, the following recommendations are made: (1) The daily dietary intake of potassium should be 60 mmol or more, because this level of intake has been associated with a reduced risk of stroke-related mortality. (2) For normotensive people obtaining on average 60 mmol of potassium daily through dietary intake, potassium supplementation is not recommended as a means of preventing an increase in blood pressure. (3) For normotensive people, magnesium supplementation is not recommended as a means of preventing an increase in blood pressure. (4) For normotensive people, calcium supplementation above the recommended daily intake is not recommended as a means of preventing an increase in blood pressure. For the treatment of hypertension, the following recommendations are made. (5) Potassium supplementation above the recommended daily dietary intake of 60 mmol is not recommended as a treatment for hypertension. (6) Magnesium supplementation is not recommended as a treatment for hypertension. (7) Calcium supplementation above the recommended daily dietary intake is not recommended as a treatment for hypertension. VALIDATION: These guidelines are consistent with the results of meta-analyses and recommendations made by other organizations. They have not been clinically tested. SPONSORS: The Canadian Hypertension Society, the Canadian Coalition for High Blood Pressure Prevention and Control, the Laboratory Centre for Disease Control at Health Canada, and the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada.  (+info)

In this prospective cohort study, total, dairy, or non-dairy calcium intake did not have an overall statistically significant inverse association with cardiovascular risk, except for a likely reduction of MI risk associated with a moderately higher dairy calcium intake. However, this study also suggests that MI risk might be substantially increased by taking calcium supplements.. The association between dietary calcium intake and MI risk has been rarely reported. In our cohort, a moderately higher dietary calcium intake (the third quartile, mean=820 mg/day) was statistically significantly associated with a 30% lower MI risk. However, this inverse association became non-significant for men (HR=0.80; 95% CI 0.56 to 1.14) but more significant for women (HR=0.43; 95% CI 0.22 to 0.82). A possible explanation for this gender-related disparity might be, if we assume that the observed inverse association was false, that a higher dietary calcium intake was associated with certain uncontrolled confounders ...
most emphasized one is the reducing of lipolysis and increasing lipogenesis via reducing parathyroid hormone levels. The present study is designed to evaluate the effects of nondairy dietary calcium on adipogenes is and adipocyte size in male Sprague dawley rats. This experimental study was done from November to September of 2005 at Tehran school of health; nutritiondepartment.48 male Spragu-Dawley rats from Damgostar Company were used in three randomly selected groups. The rats were fed low [0.2% W/W], usual [0.5% W/W] and high [1.2% W/W] dietary calcium based on AIN-93M purified diet. Rats were housed in 12 hours light-dark cycle, 22-25°C room temperature with free access to their respective diets. At the end of the experiment, rats were decapitated and carcass fat content, carcass ash content and mean adipocyte size in testis, peritoneal and subcutaneous fat pads were compared in three groups. The SPSS 11.5 was used as statistical software, running analysis of variance for comparing the ...
Overall, there is little evidence currently to suggest an association between calcium intake and fracture risk or that increasing calcium intake through dietary sources will alter risk. Although calcium supplements produced some small inconsistent reductions in fractures, the doses used of 500-1600 mg/day gave an average total daily calcium intake of 1780 mg/day (range 1230-2314 mg/day). This is considerably higher than the dietary calcium intake in the highest quarter or fifth in the prospective observational studies. If calcium supplements are correcting dietary calcium deficiency it might be necessary to increase dietary calcium intake to about 1800 mg/day to achieve equivalent effects to calcium supplements. Dietary manipulation to increase calcium intake by ≥1000 mg/day or to achieve total daily intakes of this size is unlikely to be sustainable.. The pooled analyses of all randomised controlled trials showed reductions in risk with calcium supplements for all fractures (by 11%) and ...
The correlation between measures for total daily calcium intake was moderately strong (r = 0.53, P < .001). The CFFFQ estimated greater total daily calcium intake than did the 24-hour recall (mean [SD], 1,021 [624] mg/d vs 800 [433] mg/d, P < .001). As daily calcium intake increased, the 24-hour recall increasingly underreported calcium (r = 0.41, P < .001) compared with the CFFFQ. Cross-tabulation and Χ2 analyses found that the CFFFQ had greater specificity for lower calcium intakes. For calcium classified by food groups, there was moderate correlation for dairy (r = 0.56, P < .001) and fruits (r = 0.43, P < .001). The CFFFQ overestimated mean total calcium compared with the 24-hour recall by 221 mg/d (P < .001), including within racial groups (195 mg/d for black women, P = .04, and 229 mg/d for white women, P < .001). Dairy was the primary calcium source for both groups (55% of intake for black women and 57% of intake for white women ...
New Delhi: June 18, 2016: Calcium is important for maintaining strong bones. It also helps in blood clotting, early developmental growth and muscle contraction and relaxation. Calcium can be easily obtained from natural food sources like leafy vegetables, yoghurt, nuts and cheese. However, the majority of the Indians, specifically in the age group of 14-20 years suffer from calcium deficiency due to lack of efficient absorption. Calcium deficiency disease, also known as hypocalcemia, occurs when you dont get enough calcium. It is crucial that people are educated about the effects of calcium deficiency on the overall health and wellbeing of people in the long run. Those suspected of suffering from calcium deficiency should not self-diagnose and treat themselves by consuming large amounts of calcium supplements. Instead, it is important that they consult their doctor and together devise a healthy eating plan supported by supplementation, said Padma Shri Awardee Dr KK Aggarwal - Honorary ...
The current findings are consistent with trials of patients with renal failure, in which calcium supplements were associated with an increase in mortality.13 Few comparable data are available from observational studies of calcium supplements. One study reported a 24% increase in coronary heart disease in Finnish postmenopausal women using calcium supplements (with or without vitamin D) compared with non-users.37 Non-fatal myocardial infarction in US men using calcium supplements compared with non-users did not increase significantly, although the relative risk for each fifth of supplement intake ranged between 1.02 and 1.07.38. The relations between dietary calcium intake and cardiovascular events have also been examined. The inverse relation between calcium intake and standardised mortality ratios for ischaemic heart disease in the United Kingdom was strong.6 In two US prospective observational studies, women in the highest fourth of calcium intake had 30-40% lower cardiovascular mortality than ...

Calcium is an essential mineral for several important functions in the body of an animal. Calcium is needed for the development of the fetal skeleton as well as for the secretion of milk in lactating females, making pregnant and nursing guinea pigs more prone to calcium deficiency if their increased nutritional needs are not being met. This related type of calcium deficiency usually develops in the one to two weeks before, or shortly after, giving birth. Also at higher risk of calcium deficiency are obese or stressed guinea pigs, or guinea pigs that have already been pregnant several times.
Increased calcium intake is effective in increasing bone mineral density in children, but the effect disappears when calcium supplements are discontinued. Increased dietary calcium from daily food sources may have a greater impact on bone density than that achieved by calcium supplements. However, studies have not yet demonstrated sustained achievement of increased calcium from food sources. In addition, the effects of baseline calcium intake, bone density, and puberty status may influence bone response to increased dietary calcium. This study will develop, implement, and evaluate a Behavioral Modification-Nutrition Education (BM-NE) Intervention Program designed to promote sustained increases in dietary calcium. The study will quantify the impact of increased dietary calcium on bone density during growth and development and will determine whether the presence of risk factors for low bone density influences compliance with the program.. Participants will be recruited into two groups: a group of ...
Increased intake of protein and salt increase the risk of stone formation. Interestingly, higher levels of dietary calcium intake appear to protect against rather than cause stone formation. This is probably due to the fact that dietary calcium combines with dietary oxalate, decreasing the absorption of oxalate from the intestine and subsequent excretion in the urine. These changes are reversed and stone formation may be enhanced with a low calcium diet. However, certain individuals who absorb excess calcium from their diet may experience additional stone problems with a high calcium intake. The best recommendation regarding dietary calcium is to avoid excessive intake of calcium, as well as low calcium diets. Drinking large amounts of water or other liquids has been linked to a reduced risk of stone formation. On the other hand drinking large quantities (more than one liter per week) of soft drinks acidified with phosphoric acid (Colas) seems to cause a modest increase in the risk of stone ...
Calcium: In the past, doctors have recommended a low-calcium diet for those stone formers with high levels of calcium in their urine. The paradox here is that although reducing calcium in the diet does reduce levels of calcium in the urine, it also increases levels of oxalates in the urine. This is thought to be due to the fact that calcium inhibits the absorption of oxalate in the intestines. As mentioned above, hyperoxaluria (excessive urinary oxalate excretion) appears to play a more crucial role in the formation of stones than hypercalciuria (excessive urinary calcium excretion). This means that consumption of a low-calcium diet may actually raise your risk of forming stones, rather than decrease it as previously thought. Therefore, some experts advise eating a high-calcium (or at least normal-calcium) diet, rather than a low-calcium diet as many conventional doctors still suggest. With regards to calcium supplementation, studies have shown that taking calcium supplements between meals may ...
Several reports have found inverse associations between calcium intake and body weight. Few intervention studies have shown that a high calcium diet resulted in a greater body weight loss than a low calcium diet. The mechanism is not clear, but one possible explanation is reduced absorption of fat in the gut, due to formation of insoluble calcium fatty acid soaps or binding of bile acids which impairs the formation of micelles.. The aim of this study is to examined if a high calcium intake from dairy products, in diets high or normal in fat content, have an effect on fecal energy and fat excretion, concentrations of substrates involved in energy metabolism and blood pressure. ...
What would we do if we had no bones? We would just be all skin, spineless. Could not even stand, cant even walk. That is why we need our bones strong and healthy. That is why calcium is the most abundant mineral in our body. 99% of calcium is found in our bones and in our teeth. Two or three pounds of it are mostly found in our bones and in our teeth. Imagine a world without bones. Imagine a world without teeth.. As much as calcium is very essential for our teeth and bones, we also use it in different ways. We use calcium to be an electrolyte for transmitting nerve signals, for water balance, for neutralizing acid/alkaline in our bodies and maintaining osmotic pressure. Calcium also helps in blood clotting, muscle contraction and heart muscle function.. So in order to prevent calcium deficiency we are listing whole foods that are a good calcium source. Other than food we are also listing other ways so we can avoid calcium deficiency. So, here they are.. ...

The researchers calculated the number of disability-adjusted life years (DALYS) lost due to hip fractures associated with low nutritional calcium intake and the number of hip fractures that could potentially be prevented each year with intake of additional dairy products. The benefits were highest in France with 2023 prevented hip fractures, followed by Sweden (455) and the Netherlands (132). This represents a substantial health cost savings of approximately 129 million, 34 million and 6 million Euros in these countries, respectively. Our study likely underestimates the potential cost savings of increased dietary calcium in that it relies on existing figures for the senior population and does not take into account the long-term benefits to the younger generation, said Rizzoli. He added, Adequate nutritional intake and regular exercise during childhood and adolescence, both necessary for the development of peak bone mass, may contribute to bone strength and reduce the risk of osteoporosis and ...

Calcium Supplements Supplements in general are a good idea as we often dont get enough nutrition from our diets. Calcium supplements offer the follwing.. Calcium is the mineral most likely to be deficient in the average diet. Calcium deficiency is a condition that is now more and more common. Only 21 percent of us are getting the recommended amount of calcium, according to federal government statistics and thats why calcium supplements are a good idea.. The result of insufficient amounts of calcium in our bodies over the long term may be thinning bones, termed osteoporosis or the softening of bony tissue, called osteomalacia. The faulty metabolism of calcium during childhood may result in a condition called rickets. Recent research even points to calcium deficiency as being a possible cause of hypertension (high blood pressure) and of colon cancer. You. ve probably heard it many times before. You need calcium to prevent osteoporosis. But a lack of this mineral means more than weak bones. Key ...
BACKGROUND: Increased dietary calcium intake has been proposed as a population-based public health intervention to prevent osteoporotic fractures. We have examined whether calcium supplementation decreases clinical fracture risk in elderly women and its mechanism of action. METHODS: Five-year, double-blind, placebo-controlled study of 1460 women recruited from the population and older than 70 years (mean age, 75 years) who were randomized to receive calcium carbonate, 600 mg twice per day, or identical placebo. The primary end points included clinical incident osteoporotic fractures, vertebral deformity, and adverse events ascertained in 5 years. Bone structure was also measured using dual x-ray absorptiometry of the hip and whole body, quantitative ultrasonography of the heel, and peripheral quantitative computed tomography of the distal radius. RESULTS: Among our patients, 16.1% sustained 1 or more clinical osteoporotic fractures. In the intention-to-treat analysis, calcium supplementation did not
Calcium is important for bone health. Over the last 15 years, reference calcium intakes in Western countries have been revised upwards for maximizing bone mass at skeletal maturity and for prevention of osteoporotic fractures. Some of these reference figures have also been adopted for use in Asian countries. However, the scientific data based on for revising reference calcium intakes in the West was largely based on Caucasians. Limited human studies relating to calcium requirements and bone mineralization have been conducted in Asians in Asia. In children and adolescents, a trial has confirmed no effects of calcium supplementation on bone gains in adolescent girls after 7 years. A meta-analysis has also revealed that calcium supplementation has little beneficial effects on bone gain. Given that genetic factors, hormonal status, body size, bone structure, diets, physical activity, vitamin D status and adaptation could modify calcium retention and bone integrity, these factors need to be ...
article{8f6de3d8-e8c4-4931-8ade-d90d71d963ba, abstract = {,p,Background: Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death. Little is known about whether prediagnostic nutritional factors may affect survival. We examined the associations of prediagnostic calcium intake from foods and/or supplements with lung cancer survival. Methods: The present analysis included 23,882 incident, primary lung cancer patients from 12 prospective cohort studies. Dietary calcium intake was assessed using food-frequency questionnaires at baseline in each cohort and standardized to caloric intake of 2,000 kcal/d for women and 2,500 kcal/d for men. Stratified, multivariable-adjusted Cox regression was applied to compute hazard ratios (HR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI). Results: The 5-year survival rates were 56%, 21%, and 5.7% for localized, regional, and distant stage lung cancer, respectively. Low prediagnostic dietary calcium intake (<500-600 mg/d, less than half of the recommendation) was associated with a ...
Major signs of calcium deficiency are skeletal problems: osteopenia, osteomalacia, osteoporosis, and rickets. Osteopenia is the problem wherein there is less than regular quantity of bone. If left untreated, it could lead to weakening of bones. Weakening of bones (from words permeable) is the condition where our bones lose its thickness, therefore, coming to be porous as well as brittle. Minor accidents like bumps and also small drops can trigger bone crack, or worse the bone may damage under its own weight.. Osteomalacia, which is rickets in kids, is a failing of the bones to retain minerals, among the clear indications of calcium deficiency, leading to a minimized amount of mineral content of the bone. In this problem, bones come to be soft, versatile, and also conveniently bendable resulting in bowed legs, sunken breasts (pectus excavatum), beaded ribs, sticking out breasts (pectus carnitum), large temples, and hyper extendable joints.. Signs of calcium shortage can appear in other ...
ADELAIDE, AUSTRALIA. The Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for calcium for men in the USA and Canada is 1000 mg/day up to the age of 50 years and 1200 mg/day for men above age 50. In view of recent reports that high calcium intakes may be detrimental, it is obviously important to know if the RDA reflects the actual amounts needed to achieve a steady calcium balance. A group of researches at the Royal Adelaide Hospital now report that the amount of calcium needed to maintain a steady calcium status is 750 mg/day for men below the age of 60 years. They acknowledge that men older than 60 may need more as the ability to absorb calcium declines with age ...
Many women are advised to take a calcium supplement for healthy bones-especially after menopause (when decreasing estrogen levels accelerate bone loss). In fact, the majority of American women over 31 take calcium supplements, says a 2010 study in The Journal of Nutrition.. But new research, published online in the British Medical Journal, might have you second-guessing a supplement. Scientists reported that postmenopausal women who took calcium supplements increased their risk of heart attack by 25 to 30 percent and stroke by 15 to 20 percent. Next: More Information on Calcium Supplements ». [pagebreak] Calcium supplements-unlike calcium-rich foods, such as milk-increase blood calcium levels for a few hours after theyre taken, says Ian Reid, M.D., the studys lead author. This bump may raise risk of heart disease-possibly because the calcium is deposited in the walls of the arteries, making them less pliable. Other experts think womens supplement habits shouldnt change, in part because ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Adverse events from calcium supplementation: Relationship to errors in myocardial infarction self-reporting in randomized controlled trials of calcium supplementation. AU - Lewis, Joshua. AU - Zhu, Kun. AU - Prince, Richard. PY - 2012. Y1 - 2012. N2 - The clinical effects of calcium supplements on adverse events reporting have not been well described. This study reviews randomized controlled trial (RCT) evidence of adverse events to clarify the epidemiology of these events. The hypothesis that patient self-report of myocardial infarction (MI) is increased in individuals receiving calcium supplementation is because of an increase in non-MI events incorrectly perceived by the patient as being because of MI, is examined. In seven RCTs summary self-reported gastrointestinal (GI) adverse event rates were more common in participants receiving calcium. These were described as constipation, excessive abdominal cramping, bloating, upper GI events, GI disease, GI symptoms, and severe ...
Calcium aids in development of strong bones and teeth. It also helps your heart, nerves, and muscles. Calcium deficiency often doesnt show symptoms right away, but leads to serious health problems over time. If calcium consumption isnt enough, your body may use the calcium from your bones instead, leading to bone loss.. Experts also believe that calcium deficiencies may be related to low bone mass and weakening of bones due to osteoporosis.. Calcium deficiency leads to convulsions and abnormal heart rhythm which can be life-threatening. Postmenopausal women experience greater bone loss due to changing hormones experiencing troubles absorbing calcium.The best sources of calcium are dairy products such as milk, yogurt, cheese, calcium-set tofu, and small fish with bones. Vegetables such as kale and broccoli also have calcium, and many cereals and grains are calcium-fortified.. ...
The University of Auckland Library Calcium supplements appear to increase cardiovascular risk, but the mechanism is unknown. We investigated the acute effects of calcium supplements on blood pressure in postmenopausal women. The reduction in systolic blood pressure was smaller after calcium compared with the placebo in the hours following dosing. INTRODUCTION: Calcium supplements appear to be associated with increased cardiovascular risk; however, the mechanism of this is uncertain. We previously reported that blood pressure declined over a day in older women, and that this reduction was smaller following a calcium supplement. To confirm this finding, we investigated the acute effects of calcium supplements on blood pressure. METHODS: This was a randomised controlled crossover trial in 40 healthy postmenopausal women (mean age 71 years and BMI 27.2 kg/m(2)). Women attended on two occasions, with visits separated by ???7 days. At each visit, they received either 1 g of calcium as citrate, or ...
Almost all women older than 50 are told to take calcium supplements to prevent bone loss. Hip fractures, spine fractures and other bone problems can cause a lot of pain and misery, not to mention early death. [...] I am reading that calcium pills themselves may lead to heart disease, stroke and premature death. Earlier research has shown that men who take calcium supplements (1,500 mg) are more likely to suffer a heart attack or stroke (JAMA Internal Medicine online, Feb. 4, 2013). The researchers found that those who ate a high-calcium diet (at least 1,400 mg/day) and also took calcium tablets (500 mg each) were more than twice as likely to die during the study as those whose diets contained between 600 and 999 mg of calcium daily. Overall, it appears that relying on dietary sources of calcium is safer and more likely to provide additional nutrients needed for bone strength, such as magnesium, vitamin K and vitamin D. The manufacturer offers this caution: Some people have had changes in behavior
The effect of calcium treatment did not differ by magnesium intake at baseline (test for interactions, P = 0.68). Previously, the study had shown that the effects of calcium supplementation on adenoma recurrence did not differ by baseline dietary intakes of calcium. We found no material change after adjustment for baseline dietary calcium intake. Thus, the suggestion of effect modification by the calcium:magnesium ratio cannot be attributed solely to the baseline dietary intake of either calcium or magnesium. Point estimates suggest that calcium reduces the risk of advanced adenoma regardless of the calcium:magnesium intake ratio level, a null finding that could be due to lack of statistical power. The effect of calcium on the risk of hyperplastic polyps did not differ by baseline calcium:magnesium intake ratio, but a protective effect of calcium on hyperplastic polyps was observed when baseline magnesium intake was below the median (test for interaction, P = 0.05) (eTable1, ...
Dr. G. J. Hofmeyr, of the University of the Witwatersrand/University of Fort Hare,East London, South Africa, and colleagues conducted a systematic review of 12 clinical trials, involving over 15,500 women, that compared at least 1 gram of calcium daily during pregnancy with an inactive placebo supplement.. Most of the women were at low risk for pregnancy complications, but they had low levels of calcium in their diet. Compared with placebo, calcium supplementation was associated with less high blood pressure and less preeclampsia, the investigators report in the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology.. No overall effect was seen on the risk of preterm birth or stillbirth or infant death before hospital discharge.. Calcium supplementation during pregnancy for women with deficient dietary calcium intake offers modest benefit for individual women, Hofmeyrs team concludes.. However, a public health policy of calcium supplementation during pregnancy is unlikely to have a major impact on ...
Of all the bioactive components in milk, it is primarily calcium and vitamin D that have been studied for their effects on body weight and fat mass. A high calcium intake may lead to the calcium-mediated formation of insoluble soaps, which prevent fat absorption by binding bile acids. Other milk components that may also have a favourable effect on body weight include dairy proteins (both casein and whey protein) that have been suggested to decrease visceral fat mass and body weight. Whey seems to have an important role in muscle sparing and lipid metabolism. In addition, reduced lipogenesis and increased lipolysis may explain the favourable impact of dairy on weight and fat mass.. The prebiotic function of lactose may impact on body weight and subsequently also on the comorbidities associated with overweight and obesity. Although not directly related to lactose as a prebiotic, animal studies have shown that prebiotics (fructans) lead to reduced body-weight gain and fat deposition, and protect ...
Consume adequate amount of calcium every day. You can get enough calcium from food items like milk (120mg/100g), yogurt (120 mg/100g) and cheese (700mg/100g) reducing calcium intake may not decrease risk of stone formation but can lead to osteopenia. Moreover, reduced calcium consumption increases oxalate stone formation ...
I have previously blogged about the high prevalence of Vit D deficiency in bariatric patients. A natural consequence of Vit D deficiency and/or low calcium intake is secondary hyperparathyroidism, necessary to maintain normal calcium levels in the blood.. Apart from the importance of adequate calcium and Vit D intake for bone health, Increased calcium intake has also been suggested to help with weight loss. However, interventions studies on this have not been conclusive.. This may be because, calcium (+Vit D) supplementation perhaps only aids weight loss in people with low calcium (and/or Vit D?) intake. This at least is suggested by a new study by Genevieve Major and colleagues from Laval University, Ste-Foy, Quebec, Canada, published in this months issue of the British Journal of Nutrition.. In this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, 63 overweight or obese women, who reported consuming less than 800 mg of calcium per day, underwent a 15-week weight-reducing programme either ...

Patients at risk of osteoporosis should alter their diet rather than rely on calcium supplements, say researchers after a new study found they increased the risk of a heart attack by 86%, compared with those not taking supplements.. The large study of 24,000 people showed patients who had a high level of dietary calcium lowered their risk of a heart attack by a third, when compared with those with lower levels of calcium intake.. The evidence adds to previous studies casting doubt on NICE guidance that GPs should consider calcium supplements in all postmenopausal women at risk of osteoporosis.. MHRA said it was carefully evaluating the new data, and experts said it reinforced that GPs should look at optimising patients lifestyle, before resorting to supplementation.. The study by German and Swiss researchers looked at men and women aged between 35- 64 years, with no history of cardiovascular problems, and followed them for 11 years.. They found those taking vitamin and mineral supplements ...
The present study showed that a high-calcium diet markedly attenuated the development of experimental two-kidney DOC-NaCl hypertension in rats. Moreover, calcium supplementation not only slowed the rate of ascending blood pressure10 but also had a persistent long-term antihypertensive effect. Also, the DOC-NaCl-induced cardiac hypertrophy was alleviated, thus supporting the concept of reduced cardiac afterload and peripheral resistance after calcium supplementation.23 ACh relaxes arteries via the release of several factors from endothelial cells, the most prominent autacoids being NO, prostacyclin, and EDHF. Subsequently, NO stimulates soluble guanylate cyclase, elevating intracellular cGMP in smooth muscle; prostacyclin acts via adenylate cyclase and cAMP, and EDHF dilates arteries via the opening of K+ channels.15 24 Impaired endothelium-dependent relaxation to ACh has often been observed in studies of experimental hypertension,25 26 27 and in the present investigation, the relaxations to ACh ...
Is your body calcium deficient & are you searching for measures to prevent it? Your search ends here as weve got exhaustive tips to prevent calcium deficiency!
The risks of developing kidney failure and a calcium deficiency from the popular osteoporosis drug zoledronic acid are extremely rare, according to researchers at Loyola University Health System. These findings were presented earlier this month at the American Society for Bone and Mineral Researchs annual meeting.
Adcal-D3 Chewable Tablets Fruit FlavouredAdcal-D3 is a dietary supplement containing calcium and vitamin D3 for those needing to increase their calcium and vitamin D levels, for example those with osteoporosis, osteomalacia (softening of the bone), or vitamin D and calcium deficiency. It can also be advised during pregnancy. Calcium supplements may be recommended at stages in your life when your calcium requirement increases, e.g. during pregnancy, while breastfeeding or with advancing age (after the menopause in women), to prevent calcium deficiency. A calcium intake that is twice the recommended daily allowance (RDA) may slow the rate of bone loss and reduce the risk of fractures.Adcal-D3 also contains Vitamin D3. Vitamin D is needed for calcium to be absorbed from the gut - a deficiency can lead to low calcium levels, even if you are getting enough calcium from your diet, which can subsequently lead to a weakening of the bones. Vitamin D3 is primarily obtained from sunlight on the skin, so a ...

I trust by now you will have realized that context and form is everything. By supplying calcium in its biologically appropriate form, there is a huge leeway in terms of amounts of calcium and calcium to phosphorus ratio. That is why you can supply lots of bones or fewer bones in the diet and still achieve the same result. However, there is a certain point at which bone reduction and meat increase becomes critical to bone growth and mineralization. This huge buffering capacity of evolutionary nutrition as opposed to fake industrial food - which has a very narrow window in relation to dietary calcium levels and calcium to phosphorus ratio - cannot be explained in terms of our current scientific understanding. The best we can say is to achieve the results we want, all we need do is follow basic evolutionary principles. When we do that, we can throw away our limited scientific understanding and rely on the genes that we know will respond appropriately to food to which they are genetically designed ...
Weakness in bones? Grab a calcium supplement, advice the doctors. But have you thought about the way intake of extra calcium can affect your body. This important nutrient that is essential for healthy bones may become a reason for heart disease and other complications if taken in excess quantities.. Calcium and bone health. Bone health is dependent on calcium intake but research has indicated that large amounts of calcium consumed by older women may expose the women to heart disorders and even other complications like death.. The Swedish research study. A sample of women who were born in the period from 1914-1948 was collected, and a research study was done on them by Swedish Researchers. The follow-up research was carried out on almost 61,433 women for about 19 years. The researchers prepared a questionnaire to keep an account of the diet taken by the ladies and the intake of the calcium supplements they took. The study confirmed the reasons for death recorded by the Swedish government ...
From an article in Life Extension magazine dated November 2010, I feel better about the calcium supplements I take. On July 30th, 2010 a meta-analysis published in the British Journal Of Medicine reported that calcium supplementation was associated with a significant increase in risk for heart attack. According to the Life Extension Magazine article and comment by Steven Joyal MD, the published analysis was not accurate. In addition four of the contributing authors of the meta-analysis were INVOLVED IN THE PHARMACEUTICAL DEVELOPMENT TRIALS INVOLVING CALCIUM SUPPLEMENTATION, INCLUDING WYETH, MISSION PHARMACAL, SHIRE PHARMACEUTICALS AND NYCOMED. The article goes on to say that in a biased and horrifically flawed analysis, a group of doctors came to the conclusion that calcium supplements increase heart attack risk by 27%. ...
The only external source of calcium for the body is the diet, which has led to assumptions that dietary calcium influences the health of the skeleton. The major food sources of calcium in the UK are dairy products. Other sources include green leafy vegetables, products of white flour (due to its fortification with calcium carbonate), tofu and the soft bones of fish. Table 1 gives examples of some calcium-rich foods.. [[NIP10_table1_57]]. Average intakes for dietary calcium have declined over time, mainly due to a decline in milk and bread consumption. The debate about whether we are eating enough calcium has been ongoing for many years, and the uncertainties that remain are reflected by the differences in the recommended daily allowances in various countries. What is clear is that calcium intake must be sufficient to meet the biological requirement if optimal bone development is to be achieved, and therefore must be sufficient to provide an adequate amount, once absorption efficiency and ...
BEGINNER: Use 5 g (1 level teaspoon) per 150 L (40 US gallons) twice a week. For precise dosing, use the Seachem Digital Spoon Scale. Dissolve in at least 250 mL (1 cup) of freshwater. Check calcium every 2 weeks and adjust amount or frequency accordingly. ADVANCED: Check calcium level, then follow addition regimen above until calcium is adjusted to 380-420 mg/L. Each 5 g/150 L will raise calcium by about 12 mg/L. Quantity or frequency can be adjusted, but do not exceed 10 g/150 L per day. Thereafter, use as required to maintain calcium.. EXPERT: After determining the calcium consumption rate, set up a continuous drip system. Use the following formula to determine how much to add to your top-off water: m=vc/400 (m=grams to add to top off water, v=volume of tank in liters, c=amount to raise calcium in mg/L). [For reference: 1 gallon=3.8 liters, 5 g=1 teaspoon]. DO NOT OVERDOSE: Excess calcium may enhance the loss of carbonate alkalinity. Do not directly mix with any carbonate supplement. Best if ...

AIMS: To measure the nutritive value of pasture in terms of digestible energy intake (DEI) and dry matter (DM) digestibility, and the effects of increased calcium (Ca) intakes on apparent mineral absorption and bone characteristics in grazing weanling Thoroughbreds. METHODS: DM intake (DMI) and DEI were determined in 16 weanling Thoroughbreds grazing pasture from their daily faecal DM output, measured over 8 days, divided by the DM indigestible fraction (1-digestible DM) determined in a 6-day digestibility trial. The DM, gross energy content, crude protein, soluble carbohydrate, acid detergent fibre, neutral detergent fibre, lipid, Ca, phosphorus (P), sodium (Na), potassium(K), sulphur (S) and magnesium (Mg) composition of perennial ryegrass/white clover pasture and faeces were determined and their digestibility and/or apparent absorption calculated. Calcium intake and bone growth studies used 17 weanlings, randomly divided into three groups and fed perennial ryegrass/white clover pasture and ...
In todays world, food fortification has become a primary need to combat the widespread deficiency of vitamins and minerals. Several initiatives are being taken at various levels by the government and different organizations to provide proper nutrition to people. Several fortified food products are thus witnessing high demand. One such Calcium rich food product is Calcium-fortified bread. Several factors including growing bone disorders, such as osteoporosis and rheumatism, are contributing to the growth of the Calcium-fortified Bread Market. Calcium is one of the most crucial minerals and its proper intake is necessary to build and maintain bone strength as well as to establish proper coordination between brain and other parts of the body.. Request TOC of this Report- Calcium-fortified breads are rich in calcium and help people to fulfill their daily calcium intake. With growing awareness about health and wellness among people, the ...
1. Chromatography measurements indicated that adult rats converted 25-hydroxycholecalciferol into 1,25-dihydroxycholecalciferol at a lower rate than that reported earlier for young animals. In serum, less-polar metabolites were found which probably represented vitamin D esters and vitamin D3.. 2.

Science is still trying to determine the role of vitamin K2 in bone health, but we know for sure that vitamin D is required for proper calcium utilization, and magnesium is required to activate vitamin D. We also know that magnesium plays an important role in making sure that calcium doesnt calcify the tissues and organs throughout our body.. Other studies also have shown that manganese, vanadium, boron, silica, zinc, and copper in trace amounts are also important for bone health.. Taking calcium supplements without its essential co-factors can have negative health consequences. But with its essential co-factors (especially magnesium), calcium supplements can play an important role in preventing osteoporosis.. Is There a Problem With Calcium Supplements or Is It Magnesium Deficiency?. The big problem occurs when we take vitamin D with calcium supplements. Its true that vitamin D is needed for proper absorption of calcium, but vitamin D also depletes our body of magnesium. Thats because ...

The good news is most people can obtain their calcium needs from dairy foods with a few adjustments. First, start with small amounts of milk at meals and slowly increase to what you can tolerate.. Second, eat low-fat dairy products such as yogurt or cheese. These dairy foods contain lesser amounts of lactose.. And finally, lactose-free milk and milk products or calcium-fortified foods are other good choices for meeting your calcium needs.. ...
Recently we have shown that supplemental dietary calcium precipitates luminal cytolytic surfactants and thus inhibits colonic epithelial proliferation, which may decrease the risk of colon cancer. In Western diets, milk products are quantitatively the most important source of dietary calcium. However, they also contain large amounts of phosphate, which has been hypothesized to inhibit the antiproliferative effect of calcium. Therefore, we studied in rats the possible differential antiproliferative effects of dairy calcium, calcium carbonate, and calcium phosphate, supplemented to a Western high-risk control diet. We observed that fecal bile acid excretion was similar in the various diet groups, whereas fatty acid excretion was stimulated by the calcium supplements in the order calcium carbonate , calcium phosphate , milk mineral. In fecal water, concentrations of bile acids and fatty acids were drastically decreased in the supplemented groups, resulting in decreased cytolytic activity of fecal ...
It was suggested that supplementation with calcium salts can increase the risk of formation of kidney stones composed of calcium oxalate and influence the risk of cardiovascular diseases (CVD). In healthy individuals a diet with normal calcium intake of 1000-1200 mg daily is associated with a reduction in kidney stone formation of approximately 50% as compared with a diet containing 400-600 mg calcium daily. It was shown that additional calcium supplementation has not resulted an increased risk of kidney stones unless total calcium intake exceeds 2000 mg/d. Calcium salts should be taken together with meals to avoid a rise in urine calcium excretion without any advantages of intestinal oxalate binding.. Secondary analyses of studies primarily designed to examine the influence of calcium carbonate, with or without vitamin D, on fracture incidence (including large prospective trials CAIFOS, RECORD, WHI) showed no significant effect of calcium supplement on CVD. The studies revealed that calcium ...
We now know that the ideal kidney stone prevention diet is almost identical to the ideal diet that everyone in this country is supposed to eat. We have put a link to this diet at the end of this article.. The main parts of the diet related to stones are: Calcium intake between 1,000 to 1,200 mg; sodium intake below 2,300 mg and ideally 1,500 mg; protein intake between 0.8 to 1 gm/kg body weight; a great reduction in refined sugar intake to below 10% of your daily carbohydrate intake. The US diet recommendations include numerous charts and pictures to help you obtain all this from normal food. There is a special issue of high oxalate foods for stone formers, but the high calcium intake may reduce the importance of dietary oxalate restriction. Of course the high fluid needs of stone formers are special and not part of what every American needs to do.. It is both good and bad that the diet for all healthy Americans happens also to be ideal for correcting the main disorders that cause stones. It is ...

Determining calcium bioavailability is important in establishing dietary calcium requirements. In infants and small children, previously conducted mass balance studies have largely been replaced by stable isotope-based studies. The ability to assess calcium absorption using a relatively short 24-hour urine collection without the need for multiple blood samples or fecal collections is a major advantage to this technique. The results of these studies have demonstrated relatively small differences in calcium absorption efficiency between human milk and currently available cow milk-based infant formulas. In older children with a calcium intake typical of Western diets, calcium absorption is adequate to meet bone mineral accretion requirements.
TY - JOUR. T1 - Secretion and excretion of calcium by the human gastrointestinal tract. AU - Heaney, Robert P.. AU - Skillman, Thomas G.. PY - 1964/7/1. Y1 - 1964/7/1. N2 - Fecal excretion of calcium of endogenous origin has been measured in 52 studies in 33 adult human subjects, under full metabolic balance conditions. Endogenous fecal calcium averaged .130 ± .047 Gm. per day, was positively correlated with both fecal calcium and dietary calcium and was inversely correlated with fractional calcium absorption. The regression line relating endogenous fecal calcium with fractional absorption allowed estimates for total intestinal calcium secretion at both zero and 100 per cent absorption; from these estimates it was calculated that approximately 15 per cent of the total intestinal calcium secretion was nonabsorbable even under conditions when dietary calcium was completely absorbed (presumably because it enters the gut caudad of the absorption sites). Total intestinal calcium secretion, ...
0002]A level of calcium within the living body is constantly maintained by balancing between absorption and excretion from the gastrointestinal tract, and renal tubular reabsorption and excretion, respectively. Consequently, calcium deficiency is one of the symptoms of chronic renal failure. Also, calcium deficiency is often found since it is not easy to find various foods containing a lot of calcium, and an efficiency of the absorption is not sufficient in many cases. Calcium deficiency is responsible for brittle bones and may cause osteoporosis and osteomalacia, and thus it is hoped to establish a method for improving an efficiency of the calcium absorption from the small intestine and/or bone absorption of calcium ...

11 As with all diets, misconceptions have arisen with this diet. Many individuals adhering to a low-fat diet incorrectly believe that only fat calories cause weight gain, leading to an overindulgence of grains and starches. Increased caloric intake, no matter where the calories come from, can result in weight gain 11 (Table 2; Sidebar: The Old-Fashioned Solution Calorie Counting). Other Dieting Trends Other popular diets include a high-calcium diet, especially from dairy products, to promote weight loss. Although calcium intake has obvious health benefits, its role in weight loss needs further clinical investigation.2 Advocates of high-protein diets suggest that increased protein correlates with increased satiety and increased thermic effect from food. Again, little evidence exists to support this theory, and the effects of high protein intake on renal function and calcium balance are unknown but are worthy of concern.2 Whereas a definite link has yet to be established, epidemiologic data show a ...

Researchers at NTNU and the University of Oslo used an advanced analytical model to investigate the total health effect of taking a combined calcium and vitamin D supplement, compared to taking no supplements, based on a group of healthy women aged 65 with a BMI of 24 kg/m2. Our analysis shows that if 100 000 65-year-old women take 1000 mg calcium every day, 5890 hip fractures and 3820 other fractures would be prevented. On the other hand, as many as 5917 heart attacks and 4373 strokes could be caused. So for women of this age, the risks outweigh the benefits, the authors of the study wrote in an article in Aftenposten, one of Norways national newspapers. Recent studies of the effect of calcium supplementation on the risks of heart attack and stroke differ in their conclusions, so the researchers used three different scenarios based on results from previous studies. The high-risk model predicted that more than 10 000 heart attacks and strokes would be caused by supplemental calcium and ...
The rationale for recommending daily intakes of 1,000-1,500 mg of calcium, especially in older subjects with diabetes,[lxxx][80] is based on the recommendations of the Institute of Medicine Food and Nutrition Board[lxxxi][81] and the National Institutes of Health Consensus Development Panel on Osteoporosis Prevention, Diagnosis, and Therapy.[lxxxii][82] This recommendation appears to be safe and likely to reduce the incidence of osteoporosis in older individuals with diabetes. Vitamin D is also required for optimal calcium absorption, and a recommended vitamin D intake of 400-600 IU/day has been established for adults.[lxxxiii][83]. C. Cancer. Calcium Supplementation in Colon Cancer. The effect of dietary calcium in reducing the risk for colonic tumors has been suggested in a number of studies.

Rep-Cal Ultrafine (fine grind) is an excellent source of calcium for all reptiles and amphibians. Scientifically formulated from human grade 100% natural Oyster Shell phosphorus-free calcium carbonate with added Vitamin D3 to aid in the absorption of calcium. Calcium deficiency is a major dietary problem of captive reptiles and amphibians. Maintaining a proper calcium:phosphorus (Ca:P) ratio in the diet of 1.5:1 is believed to be just as important nutritionally as an adequate Ca intake. The problem in most cases is an improper Ca:P ratio, not too little Ca. Ca:P ratios of common cultured food items are shockingly poor: Crickets 0.13:1, Meal Worms 0.06:1, Wax Worms 0.08:1, Pinky Mice 0.89:1. Using a calcium supplement that also adds phosphorus makes no sense as an adequate Ca:P ratio can never be achieved. Rep-Cal contains only 100% Natural human grade phosphorus-free oyster shell Calcium Carbonate for its calcium source.
The needs of the fetus and additional maternal metabolism are believed to compromise maternal calcium homeostasis during pregnancy. Animal studies indicate that the fetal skeleton responds to changes in maternal calcium intake. Previous clinical studies have centered on populations living on restricted food supplies that are deficient in multiple nutrients. The effect of calcium deficiency or supplementation is unclear. Koo and colleagues studied the effect of calcium supplementation on the fetal skeleton during pregnancy.. More than 200 healthy women with a singleton pregnancy confirmed by ultrasound examination were recruited. The participants were randomly assigned before 22 weeks gestation to receive 2 g of calcium or placebo daily. All women received dietary advice and were provided with a commercial antenatal vitamin in addition to the study supplements. They completed 24-hour diet diaries at the beginning of the study and again at 32 to 33 weeks gestation. Compliance was checked by ...
PDF Version (180 KB). Lead, like calcium, is stored in bones and generally does not circulate throughout the body. But the demands of pregnancy and lactation trigger the release of calcium, which also releases lead into the maternal blood stream. Researchers previously showed that daily calcium supplementation during lactation reduced maternal blood lead by 15-20% and lead in breast milk by 5-10%. A new study by the same team shows that taking inexpensive calcium supplements daily also reduces blood lead levels during pregnancy[EHP 117:26-31; Ettinger et al.]. Such supplementation could help mitigate the adverse effects of prenatal lead exposure, which include low birth weight, lower intelligence scores, and impaired motor and visual skills.. The study included 557 women recruited in the first trimester of pregnancy from prenatal clinics in Mexico City. The women were recruited from 2001 to 2003; Mexico completed the phase-out of leaded gasoline in 1997, so women enrolled in the study had been ...
Although randomized controlled trials have thus far not provided the definitive evidence that low calcium intake is a cause of low 25(OH)D in humans, this is far more likely to be because no trials have adequately addressed the question than because the interaction does not exist. Experimental evidence in rats has demonstrated the interaction beyond doubt, and the physiology - which very clearly implies the interaction - appears to be, for all relevant intents and purposes, identical between humans and rats. It is thus extremely unlikely in my opinion that low calcium intake is not a cause of low 25(OH)D in humans.. The practical implications are two-fold. First, we are in desperate need of clinical trials to address this question adequately. In the mean time, if someone has low 25(OH)D, they should assess their calcium intake.. Obtaining a birds-eye view of ones calcium intake is relatively easy to do without the help of a professional, any fancy software, or even an internet database. Most ...

Calcium and vitamin D maintained and strengthened bones in women in two studies. Researchers from Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey, recruited 44 overweight pre-menopausal women, average age 38, to take calcium while dieting or while maintaining weight for six months. The dieters took a normal amount of calcium-1,000 mg per day-or a high dose of 1,800 mg per day, while non-dieters took 1,000 mg of calcium per day. Scientists noted that people typically lose bone density when losing weight, but that no bone studies exist on overweight pre-menopausal women who diet. Women in the normal and high calcium diet groups lost an average of 7.2% of body weight with no significant decrease in bone mineral density (BMD, a measure of bone strength) and researchers found no signs in the blood that the dieters were losing bone. Doctors also found that the dieters were able to absorb an adequate total amount of calcium from their diets and supplements and concluded that taking calcium while losing ...
Consuming higher amounts of calcium may lower the likelihood of precancerous colon and rectal lesions in people who are at increased risk due to variations in t
Most principles outlined for feeding low amounts of roughage to either fattening or over-wintering beef cattle can be applied to sheep flocks. Both feedlot lambs and over-wintering ewe flocks can perform well on a limited roughage intake, if adequate quantities of grain are fed, and time is allowed for sheep to adjust. Calcium intake is critical when feeding high levels of grain. A salt/limestone mixture may be necessary to ensure adequate calcium intake. Dont feed more than 0.5 kg (1 lbs) of grain at a time. Divide the grain into several feedings daily.. Sheep of all ages require a minimum quantity of roughage to promote rumination. When the suggested minimum of .2 kg (.5 lb) daily is fed, ewes will also require .7 to 1.5 kg (1.5 to 3 lb) of grains depending on performance of ewes and their size. Replacement ewe lambs may also be carried through the winter on a minimum of roughage. Lambs can be raised on an all concentrate diet, but most should include roughage at one quarter of the daily ...
Dairy foods and beverages account for about 70% of all dietary calcium intake among Americans. Dozens of epidemiological and randomised controlled trials in adults and children have used dairy products as the principal source of calcium, and have credited dairy intake with preventive benefits on study end points including bone mass, fractures and osteoporosis. A recent meta-analysis of over 270 000 people showed a strong trend for dairy intake protecting against hip fracture; the relative risk (RR) of hip fracture per daily glass of milk was 0.91, 95% CI 0.81 to 1.01.9. In many industrialised nations, milk is often the most cost-effective strategy for achieving recommended levels of calcium intake at a population level. Yet, legitimate concerns exist regarding potential deleterious effects of chronic dairy intake on health.10-16 Dairy foods, on an evolutionary time scale, are relative new-comers to the hominin diet.17 Domestication of cattle, sheep and goats first occurred approximately 11 ...

The association between calcium intake and the risk of colorectal neoplasia remains controversial. This analysis prospectively investigated the association between dietary and supplemental calcium intake and recurrent colorectal adenomas. Participants were part of a multicenter, randomized clinical trial of antioxidant vitamins. The study endpoints were adenomas detected between surveillance colonoscopies conducted at approximately 1 year and 4 years after study entry. Baseline intake of energy-adjusted calcium derived from a food frequency questionnaire was used as the main exposure of interest. Calcium supplement use was assessed by semiannual questionnaires. Logistic regression was used to compute odds ratios and 95% confidence limits, and Poisson regression was used to estimate rate ratios. Subjects in the fifth quintile of dietary calcium had an adjusted odds ratio of 0.72 (95% confidence interval, 0.43-1.22) compared to those in the lowest quintile. Investigation of the numbers of adenomas ...

I thought this was a pretty well-written article, in contrast to most science journalism. They provide a good bit of the hard numbers from the article, and point out that moderate levels of calcium consumption were linked to a decreased risk of heart disease, and only the group with the highest consumption (due to supplement use) was at increased risk. They even open the article with the statement that Calcium supplements might increase the risk of having a heart attack (emphasis mine). As usual, when reading something like this one should be careful to put too much faith in the results until they have been replicated by others, and remember that despite the efforts of the authors to correct for confounding factors, all that has been shown thus far is (possible) correlation ...

This was a secondary analysis of a randomised controlled trial. The authors had already published the results of their main trial, which looked at the preventive effects of calcium supplementation on bone density and fracture rates in healthy women after the menopause. During that trial and before the analysis of any data on heart disease or stroke, they wrote a detailed plan of their intentions to record the data for this present analysis.. Women were recruited to the study by advertisement and through the post using the electoral roll. In order to qualify, suitable women needed to have had their last period at least five years previously and be aged 55 or more, (meaning they were postmenopausal and had a life expectancy of more than five years). From an assessment of 2,421 women in the clinic, the researchers found 1,471 who agreed to participate and were suitable.. The women were randomly allocated to one of two groups. In the experimental group, the women received 1gram (0.03oz) of elemental ...
Bones are not only made up of calcium, but rather they need a calcium supplement, a magnesium supplement and a vitamin D3 supplement to best enable the calcium supplement to be absorbed into the bones. Bones are responsible for making red and white blood cells, storing fat and regulating the amount of your bodys supply of phosphorus and calcium. Bones, all 206 of them are the means to control your entire nervous system so keeping them healthy is vital. A calcium supplement is not called milk! Milk is good for children who still have plenty of calcium to disperse throughout their body but when people age, the calcium is stripped from their bones slowly but surely to help out their bodies and overall system. So, in time such calcium needs to be replenished on a daily basis to not only keep the bones healthy and strong but to be able to provide ongoing support for ones entire body functioning properly. Taking a calcium pill is about as effective as not taking one at all, so we wont be talking ...

... is collected only at the break of winter and spring when the sap moves intensively. Birch sap collection is done by drilling a hole into its trunk and leading the sap into a container via some conduit (a tube or simply a thin twig): the sap will flow along it because of the surface tension. The wound is then plugged to minimise infection[2]. Birch sap has to be collected in early spring before any green leaves have appeared, as in late spring it becomes bitter. The collection period is only about a month per year. No published evidence exists to quantify the long-term impacts of sap harvest on birch tree and birch forest health, or birch timber quality[3]. However the wounds caused by tapping birches consistently lead to dark staining in the wood[4]. In one study, infection and wood decay had spread from more than half of old tapping holes[5]. In comparison to maples, birch are considered far less tolerant to the wounds caused by tapping, and so more conservative harvesting practises ...
