Are calcium supplements killing your heart?
An 11 year study published in the scientific jounal 'Heart' showed that of the 24,000 subjects between the ages of 35-64 who they tracked - those in this group who took calcium supplements were more than 86% more likely to have a heart attack than those who did not take calcium supplements. A study in the British Medical Journal showed that those women they tracked who took 1000 mg of calcium or more a day had a 27% increae in having a heart attack. Another study, this time in Australia showed that of the group they studied who were taking calcium supplements - there was a 76% increase in heart attack deaths from those who didn't take calcium supplements. AARP has warned its readers that "There's growing evidence that (calcium supplements) significantly raise the risk of having a heart attack." Reference: AARP, 11 July 2012 - Science Daily reported in May of 2012, "Those who took calcium supplements were 86% more likely to have a heart attack."
Why do people take calcium supplements? The billion dollar industry of selling calcium supplements has convinced people that calcium supplements are the key to warding off osteoporosis and brittle bones often found in olde people.
HOW TO GET THE CALCIUM YOU NEED:
Women and men still need about 600 - 800 mg of calcium a day. The same studies that show that calcium supplements lead to an extremely higher risk that you will have a heart attack, also found that getting your needed calcium from sources such as yogart, cottage cheese, milk, blackberries, and broccoli - does NOT raise your risk of heart attack. Low fat cheese may be another good choice. ALSO, Vitamin D3 - the sunshine vitamin has been found to have the ability to take calcium out of foods you eat and put it in the right place.
BIBLEPROBE.COM comment. I am not a doctor. I'm just a 'holistic (natural) healing' enthusiast. The following are just holistic type things everyone should look into:
I still think for a healthy body and mind the following are key: 1st - Vitamin D3 - the sunshine vitamin (in maga doses it just may coach adult stem cells out of your bone marrow and rejuvenate ALL your organs including your heart), COQ10, Extra virgin olive oil (fresh last fall's harvest) in small dosages for its 'anti-inflammatory/polyphenol benefits', garlic, onions, red wine (w/ an additional 50 mg Resveratrol supplement pill), EDTA (skin cream -not pills) a simple, safe amino acid - to clean plaque out of your arteries - clogged arteries from a life time of plaque build up HAS to be dealt with - or it will take you down; Nattokinase made from wet soy beans (it also thins the blood), and maybe some seaweed supplements that originate in deep ocean areas off the costs of Japan/South Korea & Hawaii - such as Ecklonia Cava & Astaxanthin. Those 2 may even improve your eyesight. Seanol P™ This is a rare seaweed extract (from Ecklonia Cava) and one that is quite interesting. It has been found in ORAC testing to have 3.5x the antioxidant power of even blueberries! As preventive maintenance against Cancer - look into 'Graviola pills'. Also, I think Chlorella is probably good for health for many people. Ground 'Turmeric' sprinkled into salt free pasta sauce after the sauce is cooked - I believe can help your liver. If you drink too much you will need to detoxify. Always have a lot of fresh blueberries around, and take a few handfulls. Higher doses of the sunshine vitamin (D3) may help many people. It is even possible that D3 can coach adult stem cells out of their hiding places in your bone marrow - to rejuvenate all your organs, including your heart.
Most of all - in my opinion - stay clear of Tylenol. See why here: http://prorege-forum.com/forum_entry.php?id=12529
