Leading Health Supplement Retailer Concerned About Calcium Supplements
Hollywood based Nutra Mina supplement retailer voices concern over negligent use of calcium supplementation
Consumers are more reliant on dietary supplement than ever before, but can health supplements replace proper foods? "Supplements are designed to supplement one's diet, and they should never be seen as an alternative food source", says Mr. Oliver Adams, a Nutra Mina spokesman. "If we take vitamin C for example, we know that this particular vitamin is found in many different foods. It is plentiful, and the vitamin C you get from fresh foods is of a much higher quality than the vitamin C you get from supplements, so our advice would be that you look to real food instead", said Mr. Adams.
Speaking over the phone from his Hollywood office, Mr. Adams also voiced concerned regarding the use of calcium supplements. "In recent years, vitamin D has been the subject of considerable research, and countless studies have shown just how detrimental vitamin D deficiency can be. It can lead to many serious illnesses, and these days it is common knowledge that one's body cannot absorb calcium without an adequate amount of vitamin D. Our concern is that there are too many people taking vitamin D and calcium supplements simply because they believe the two go hand in hand", said Mr. Adams.
"Just one good quality vitamin D3 5000 IU Softgel per day will ensure your body is able to absorb all the calcium it needs, but people must keep in mind that too much calcium can cause severe health problems because much of it could get deposited in internal organs or in one's arteries. Vitamin D allows calcium to be absorbed, but it does not control where that calcium goes. If you want calcium to go to your bones, you will need to pay some attention to your vitamin K intake, or you should consider taking a vitamin K2 supplement. Even then, we would still advise that you talk to a doctor before you start taking a calcium supplement", said Oliver Adams.
Nutra Mina is not the first to voice concern over the use of calcium supplements either. Many other researchers have also warned that excessive calcium can cause significant health problems, and many have pointed out that unlike vitamin D, calcium on the other hand is present in numerous foods, thereby reducing the need for supplementation.
Nutra Mina, along with several other health supplement companies recommends that consumers get tested before taking a daily calcium supplement. There is also the fear that some consumers will exceed the recommended daily dose in the belief that it will improve bone health or bone density, not realizing that they could inadvertently be feeding the buildup of calcium in their arteries or in their joints. "The best advice we can give anyone is to consult with a qualified medical practitioner before you take any type of dietary supplement", said Mr. Adams of Nutra Mina.
