algae 300x336 - Do You Know the Best Plant Source of Calcium?

   While there are many healthy options when it comes to food sourced calcium an ancient one, stands the test of time, if not taste. Marine-sourced algae is not only rich in calcium but unlike other forms of non-food sourced calcium is better utilized by the body and does not get deposited in arterial plaque at high doses. Calcified arterial plaque may clog arteries, causing an increased risk of heart attacks and strokes (Boland et al, University of Auckland, BMJ, 2011)

A New Canadian Study from McGill shows Calcium Helps Women Live longer

  Do women need calcium for 'bone insurance and added longevity? Yes, says a recent Canadian study. The study conducted by McGill University shows: 

•   Taking a calcium supplement of up to 1,000 mg per day can help women live longer

•   There is a  22 per cent cut in risk of death over a 10-year period compared with women who are not taking calcium supplements 

The Best Source of Calcium is a Natural Food Source

   Ingesting calcium from foods does not cause arterial calcification. Foods that naturally contain calcium also supply other minerals which direct the calcium into bone rather than soft tissues like arteries, kidneys and eyes. A food source of calcium from an ocean algae is a safer choice than rock calcium because it is a natural balance of nutrients.
