|What's so important about Calcium?
It is proven that healthy people have alkaline systems with the resultant high
oxygen content. Conversely, those with chronic disease have acidic systems
where the oxygen is driven out, there is a high sugar state, and nutrition
processes are inhibited.
What does that mean to me? How about some specifics?
We have found that over150 degenerative diseases are linked to Calcium
Deficiency including cancer, arthritis, heart disease, gall and kidney stones,
fibromyalgia, osteoporosis, diabetes, high blood pressure, allergies, and many
What does my body use the nutrient Calcium for?
>> Maintaining body pH at
>> Feeding our cells – nutrients pass
into the cells because of calcium presence
The bottom line -- All body functions need calcium to perform properly
pH - What does that stand for?
>> pH is the abbreviation for "potential
Hydrogen." The pH of any solution is the measure of its' hydrogen-ion
concentration. The higher the pH reading, the more alkaline and oxygen
rich the fluid is. The lower the pH reading, the more acidic and oxygen
deprived the fluid is.
>> The pH range is from 0 to 14, with 7.0
being neutral. Anything above 7.0 is alkaline, anything below 7.0 is
considered acidic. And the pH scale is logarithmic, that is each number
is 10 times more acidic that the one above it (6 is 10 times more acidic
than 7, etc.)
What pH does my body require?
>> An alkaline state of 7.3-7.5 is ideal.
Your body fluids vary from 4.5 to 7.5 pH, but your blood must maintain a
very narrow range - 7.35 to 7.45 pH.
>> Our body will do whatever is necessary
to maintain the blood in that narrow pH range. To quench the natural
forming acids, it uses calcium supplies.
>> Once your body fluids are depleted of
calcium, your body will steal it from your bones. The consequences are
near-epidemic in post-menopausal women. Heard of osteoporosis?
Well, I'll just eat calcium rich foods.
Fantastic concept. That does help, but alone... How about 2 gallons of milk
daily? Perhaps you would prefer 23 pounds of cabbage or unlike a recent
president, 17 pounds of broccoli?
OK, I'll eat a good diet with my steak, a potato, nice steamed broccoli, and
occasionally sneak a soda….oops.
Most high protein foods (like meat, fish, poultry and eggs), nearly all
carbohydrates (grains, breads and pastas) and fats form acid. The good news,
most fruits and vegetables are alkaline.
About that soda….
>> Most soft drinks have a pH of two.
Remember one point lower on the pH scale is 10 times more acidic, 7 to 6
is 10 times, 7 to 5 is 100 times and so on. That means soft drinks are
100,000 times more acidic than your body should be. It takes 32 glasses
of alkaline water with a pH of 10 to neutralize the acid from one 12 oz.
But I try to live healthy...
Even our normal body functions and exercise create some acids...(You've heard
of Lactic Acid???)
How about a calcium supplement?
>> Excellent idea. A word of caution.
Many forms of calcium are poorly absorbed by our digestive system. In
fact, only 5% gets into the body fluids where it is needed.
>> Coral Calcium is 95% absorbed, and in
fact most of that within 15 minutes. It is the most effective source for
natural calcium readily available.
OK, I'm a believer. I want to change this. How can I tell what my pH
A simple pH test will tell you how alkaline or acidic your body fluids are.
We provide a saliva pH test kit
with every order. In fact, that is the way to determine the
quantity of calcium your body needs.
