Hi dear reader
Today I want to share with You my non-secret knowledge about one of the most important mineral if You want to grow taller – calcium.
Not everyone knows that calcium is responsible for building strong bones and teeths.
- Did You know that almost 75% Americans don’t give enough calcium for them organism ?
- Why calcium is so important for growing tall and what happen when You don’t supply enough of this mineral to Your organism?
- What can You do to avoid a mistake?
- Why low calcium level is very dangerous and unhealthy?
Facts about calcium
I would like to show You what Wikipedia says about calcium :
Calcium is essential for living organisms, particularly in cell physiology, where movement of the calcium ion Ca2+ into and out of the cytoplasm functions as a signal for many cellular processes. As a major material used in mineralization of bones and shells, calcium is the most abundant metal by mass in many animals.
National Osteoporosis Foundation says :
Calcium plays an important role in building stronger, denser bones early in life and keeping bones strong and healthy later in life.
As You can see calcium can be natural height increaser!
So what happen if You don’t supply enough calcium for your organism ?
It’s easy – it takes it from Your bones, making them more weak what can be reason of osteoporosis and osteopenia. Osteopenia means low bone density, osteoporosis means that bones are brittle and weak and fracture easily.
You can’t grow tall when Your bones are weak! You and your body must be strong to increase height.
