The Calcium Myth
If you want healthy bones, all you need is calcium, right? That is the sum total of many people's knowledge of bone health nutrition. Thousands of manufacturers of calcium supplements would happily have you believe that first statement. That alone should make you wary. When thousands of companies profit from a single widely-held belief, it's probably time to question that belief.
Here is the truth. No calcium supplement, taken in the absence of other vitamins and minerals and without proper diet and exercise, has ever been proven in clinical studies to help you strengthen bones. The best that can be said is that calcium supplementation helps slow down or stop bone loss. While slowing bone loss is a great goal, it's a far cry from making them stronger and healthier by increasing bone mineral density.
There are several factors that go into actually building bone mineral density or growing bone. The source of your calcium is a key factor. Did you know that most calcium supplements are ground-up rocks or oyster shells Of equal importance to the source of calcium are a host of other vitamins, minerals and trace elements that help calcium achieve its ultimate goal in the body.
Calcium is a bone-building staple. In fact, 98% of the body's calcium resides in the bones. The body receives calcium from foods, supplements, or-if there is not an ample supply of other sources of calcium-from the bones themselves when blood calcium levels drop too low and/or the when the body is not able to fully metabolize or utilize calcium.
Ideally, calcium borrowed from the bone is replaced at a later point, but this doesn't always happen and can't always be accomplished simply by eating more calcium. After age 30, bone loss exceeds bone production, so it's even more crucial to get enough calcium. A deficiency in calcium may result in softening of the bones, brittle bones, osteoporosis and/or tooth decay.
Excellent sources of calcium include yogurt, sesame seeds, goat's milk, cow's milk, Swiss cheese, mozzarella cheese, and canned salmon with bones. Green, leafy vegetables such as kale, collard greens, bok choy, turnip greens, mustard greens and cooked spinach are packed with calcium, too. Legumes-including black-eyed peas, navy beans and kidney beans-supply good sources of calcium. Additionally, tahini, almonds, basil, oranges and almonds provide quality calcium sources.
While calcium is a major player in bone health, there are at least many other key nutrients playing vital roles, too. Take vitamin D, for example. Without vitamin D, the body can absorb only 10-15% of its dietary calcium. With vitamin D, however, the body may absorb twice as much or more.
