Foods For Bone Health

Calcium is the most important and abundantly found mineral in our body. It is stored in the bones and the teeth. Though our body needs lot of calcium, many of us are not eating enough calcium-rich foods. Calcium is needed not only for  bones, teeth and good health but also for our blood clotting, optimal nerve transmission, hormonal secretion and muscle contradiction. This is easily possibly by bone calcium, which is also known as a storage area, that releases calcium into the blood stream when needed. Blood calcium plays a critical role in balancing body’s acid/alkaline and pH (potential of Hydrogen). The body borrows calcium from the bones when need arises.

  • Calcium is used to create new  bones and maintain the strength of the bones. It is also used to control breast cancer and reduce PMS symptoms while helping in weight loss. Calcium is found to be deficient in postmenopausal women and milk intake is quite essential for them. Each day, we lose calcium in the form of skin, nails, hair, sweat, urine and cannot produce it. That is why it is necessary to outsource calcium.
  • The symptoms of Calcium deficiency symptoms are Osteopenia or Osteoporosis, tooth decay, muscle tension and high blood pressure.
  • Magnesium, Vitamin D and K are needed to absorb calcium in the body. Complex food-based supplements are preferred to isolated calcium supplements to meet our calcium needs. Generally men require 1000 milligrams of calcium per day and women need 1200 milligrams per day.
  • Products in which calcium are found in abundant are raw milk, sardines, yogurt, kale,  broccoli, water crush, beans  and lentils, figs, edamame and tofu, cheese, okra, almonds, custard apple. Calcium is also found in green vegetables and raw dairy products.
  • Supplements for calcium include Citracal Calcium +D3 Slow Release, Kirkland Signature Calcium Citrate Magnesium and Zinc, Bluebonnet Calcium Citrate and Vitamin D3,  GNC Calcium Plus 1000, New Chapter Bone Strength CalciumNature Made Calcium with Vitamin D, Swanson Calcium Citrate and Vitamin D, Calcium Magnesium with VitaminRainbow Light Calcium Citrate Mini-tabletsSolaray Calcium Magnesium Zinc
  • While taking calcium supplements, please choose brand supplements with high reliability, carefully read the product label and determine the amount of elemental calcium. You must take  calcium supplements mostly with food. Also, while trying a new supplement, take in smaller amount and try adequately and efficiently. Side effects of calcium supplements may occur such as constipation and gas problems.
  • Benefits of calcium are manifold. Our body needs calcium to build and maintain strong bones. Heart muscles and nerves also require Calcium to function adequately. Study reveals that calcium along with vitamin D can have benefits beyond bone health, perhaps protecting against cancer,  diabetes and  blood pressure.

Moreover, the habit of squeezing pimples may also leave scars and pockmarks on your skin. The best way to get rid of pimples is to use medicated/ antibacterial soap and let it heal itself.

2. Licking/ chewing your lips: Chewing your lips can make them dry or chapped, which causes you to lick and chew them even more often. Excessive lip biting can also lead to bleeding and infection. To avoid this, get yourself a good lip balm and apply it regularly to moisturize and protect your lips.

3. Nail biting: Nail biting results in ugly hands, fingers and nails due to cuticle biting. It can also cause infection in your nails, mouth, fingers and dental cavities, which can affect your smile too. Focus on the factors that can trigger these infections. 

4. SmokingSmoking affects your skin and makes it look dry and rough. It decreases the flow of blood and can damage skin collagen along with elasticity which results in saggy and loose skin.

5. Sleeping with your makeup: Makeup can clog your skin pores and oil glands, making it difficult to breathe and makes it prone to acne. To avoid this, spare sometime before going to sleep to cleanse your makeup and moisturize the skin well.

6. Ignoring the sunscreen: Ignoring sunscreen in summer will expose your skin to UV rays. Exposure to  UV rays can cause wrinkles and dryness, which makes your skin look older. To protect your skin from UV rays, use sunscreen half an hour before stepping out in the sun.

7. Inadequate sleep: Inadequate sleep releases the stress hormone in the body. It also ages your skin by decreasing the level of collagen in the skin. Hence try getting enough sleep.
