FACTORS AFFECTING CALCIUM ABSORPTION

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Pune
FACTORS AFFECTING CALCIUM ABSORPTION
Incorporating healthy foods in the diet is not enough. One should understand factors affecting the absorption of nutrients from the food. Some factors are responsible for increased absorption of particular nutrient whereas some decreases its absorption. Calcium is the hardest mineral to get absorbed in the body. 30-80 % of the dietary calcium is not getting absorbed in the adult body.

Factors increasing absorption of calcium:
1 vitamin d: vitamin d works in the digestive tract to absorb calcium into the blood stream from the walls of the duodenum. Vitamin d also helps maintain normal blood calcium level.


2. Parathyroid hormone: it increases calcium transport across the membrane of intestinal cells.


3. Acid environment: hydrochloric acid secreted in the stomach during the process of digestion is required for the absorption of calcium in the duodenum. Calcium supplements could be taken with magnesium at bedtime or between meals due to the acid environment needed in the stomach to assimilate the calcium. Always consult a physician before beginning a new supplement regimen.


4. Milk lactose: it favors absorption in infants. Lactose is acted upon by intestinal microbial flora to form acid which causes lowering of ph which makes calcium more soluble.


5. Amino acids: supplemental calcium is often chelated, or combined with protein molecules called amino acids, to help the body absorb them during digestion. Lysine and arginine increase calcium absorption.


6. Exercise: exercise along with vitamin d intake helps calcium absorption thereby making bones strong.


Factors decreasing absorption of calcium:
1. Oxalic acid& phytic acid: foods that are high in oxalic acid such as spinach, chard and chocolate, reduce calcium absorption. Oxalic acid binds with the calcium to form a salt crystal, calcium oxalate which cannot be absorbed. Phytic acid, which is found in whole-grain foods and high-fibre foods, effects calcium absorption the same way.


2. Phosphorus: too much phosphorus in the diet causes precipitation of calcium in the form of calcium phosphate.


3. Stress: stress can have a negative effect on hcl production in the stomach and on normal digestive behaviour in the body, and can therefore have a negative effect on calcium absorption.


4. Caffeine, drugs like anticoagulants, cortisone and thyroxine reduce calcium absorption.

V lack of exercise and vitamin d deficiency leads to decrease calcium absorption.

You need to get a holter monitoring test done and if it confirms slowwing of hear rate and developing of complete hear block you will need to get a pacemaker installed.

To maintain the skin health and reduce the dry skin condition follow this - 1.Bathe with gentle soaps. If possible use some natural ingredients like gramflour, turmeric mixed with some milk to bathe daily. This does not wash your skin off the natural oils. 2.Keep your bath short and do not use hot water to bathe. Use only lukewarm water. 3.Apply Vitamin E oil or warm olive oil on the body after bathing. You can also use a good moisturiser. 4.Cocoa butter mixed with wheat germ oil is also very good at maintaining the skin health. 5.You can mix some oils like – Sesame, olive, virgin coconut oil, wheat germ oil to apply before going to bed. 6.Consume diet that is rich in vitamin E, omega 3 and 6 and other skin friendly vitamins like vitamin E and A. Eat almonds, walnuts, flaxseeds, sesame seeds to maintain skin health. 7.Keep yourself hydrated. Drink atleast 8-10 glasses of water to keep your skin soft and supple.

What are the symptoms of malaria fever and tips to avoid the malaria fever and how to cure this malaria fever.
It is transmitted by the infective bite of Anopheles mosquito. Symptoms of malaria Typically, malaria produces fever, headache, vomiting and other flu-like symptoms. Complicated malaria may cause anemia, jaundice, fits, unconsciousness, cerebral fever etc. For diagnosis of malaria there are two type tests available; one is RDK Rapid Diagnositc Kit (less reliable); Other one is Peripheral smear of blood. If it comes positive contact doctor for treatment, however, most of times it doesn’t come positive because timing of test, therefore, get tested for malaria at time of peak of fever. Treatment depends on type and severity of malaria, and patient's condition. How to protect ourselves from Malaria/ Dengue? Similar measures are used to protect ourselves from Malaria/ Dengue/ Chikungunya. Keep yourself protected from mosquito bites. Children should not be allowed to play in shorts and half sleeved clothes Use Mosquito bed nets/ Repellents/ Odomass/ Kachuachhap etc. in home whichever available or you can afford. Must: Always have one anti-mosquito spray in house including kitchen/ bedroom in the starting of rainy season. Must: There should not be any water collection in house/ nearby house including water cooler/ bottles/ buckets/ holes etc. **All the best** "Aware at least 10 of your friends too about it, it is a divine job."

How to grow beard faster plzz suggest some home mad tips to grow my beard fast I'm 20 years old and want to grow beard.
Hello lybrate-user, groom your beard only after six weeks when it is full grown. Facial massage improves blood circulation to the face, which will stimulate new hair growth. The popular logic that shaving every day makes beards grow faster is a myth. Hope the above information is of help to you. Regards,

I am 24 years female. I have projection from anus from the age of 17, blood in stool, acidity,burning. While passing stool.

M.S, MBBS
General Surgeon, Bangalore
Symptoms of your problem suggests a fissure-in-Ano, and would probably be Chronic, since you would possibly have a skin tag too. Ideally - dietary modification to be tried first if not already done. I see that you are from kerala. 1. Cut down on meat and processed wheat especially parotta. 2. Increase consumption of green leafy vegetable. 3. Have plenty of water- minimum 2lts. 4. Do not strain or force while passing stools. 5. Immediately after passing stool, take sitz bath (luke warm water with a table spoon of common salt in a basin, and sit for 5 min.) do it for 2 weeks minimum, usually the ulcer starts healing, if no response, then see a surgeon, for clinical evaluation and further medication. In all probability it can be treated with medicines and ointments.
