Moringa - The Natural Calcium Supplement

Calcium is needed for stronger bones. It is also needed for heart, muscles and nerves to function properly and for your blood to clot normally. Each day we lose some calcium in the urine and to a lesser extent through perspiration. These losses must be balanced by consuming adequate amounts of calcium. If the level of calcium in the blood drops below normal, the body takes what it needs from the bone, thereby depleting the calcium reserves. Over 200 diseases have been linked to calcium deficiencies. Calcium is the most important mineral to replenish because the highest chemical composition of the human body next to water and air is calcium.The body takes calcium out of the bones to perform other functions, making the bones weaker, more fragile and breakable over time. Calcium is essential for many functions in the body, including: Regulating the heartbeat, Conducting nerve impulses, Stimulating hormone secretions, Clotting of blood, Building and maintaining healthy bones.Moringa as a supplement provide 17 times the calcium in milk, 15 times the potassium in banana, 4 times the Vitamin A in carrot, 25 times the iron in spinach and half time the Vitamin C content in orange. Natural food sources is preferable because the body absorbs calcium from foods more easily than from synthetic supplements, and the effectiveness of the mineral appears to be enhanced by being ingested along with other nutrients in the food, such as vitamin D, potassium, and magnesium. Though many synthetic calcium supplements are available in the market, Moringa leaf powder is different from them in that it provides the natural calcium which will increase the bioavailability of calcium.Calcium is absorbed in the small intestine; this process is dependent on vitamin D. As Moringa contains vitamin D along with calcium it increases the absorption of calcium. Calcium supplements have shown to protect against pre-eclampsia which is high blood pressure in pregnancy. Calcium helps in the process of secretion, bile, pancreatic fluid, gastric, intestinal, hormonal and mucous all rely on calcium to move the small droplets through the cells boundaries and cell walls. Moringa with its high calcium content also helps in the release of neurotransmitter. These are vital for a proper functioning nervous system. Calcium is one of the ‘buffers’ in blood that helps to keep the levels of acid/alkaline. Calcium deficiency leads to Osteoporosis, Osteomalacia, Rickets, etc. adequate calcium intake and vitamin D levels are important to maintain bone strength, they are not always sufficient to fully protect against the rapid bone loss that can occur around the time of menopause.
