Brittle bones and calcium supplementation

Zinc and magnesium.

Zinc helps improve stomach acid to improve bio-availability of nutrients.

Calcium makes brittle bones-calcium supplementation alone, without magnesium in balance, leads to brittle bones.

Magnesium is needed for calcium absorption. Without enough magnesium, calcium can collect in the soft tissues and cause one type of arthritis.

Not only does calcium collect in the soft tissues of arthritics, it is poorly, if at all, absorbed into their blood and bones. But taking more calcium is not the answer; it only amplifies the problem. In fact, excessive calcium intake and insufficient magnesium can contribute to both of these diseases. Magnesium taken in proper dosages can solve the problem of calcium deficiency.

When calcium is elevated in the blood it stimulates the secretion of a hormone called calcitonin and suppresses the secretion of the parathyroid hormone (PTH). These hormones regulate the levels of calcium in our bones and soft tissues and are, therefore, directly related to both osteoporosis and arthritis. PTH draws calcium out of the bones and deposits it in the soft tissues, while calcitonin increases calcium in our bones and keeps it from being absorbed in our soft tissues. Sufficient amounts of magnesium determine this delicate and important balance.

Because magnesium suppresses PTH and stimulates calcitonin it helps put calcium into our bones, preventing osteoporosis, and helps remove it from our soft tissues eliminating some forms of arthritis.

I wonder, though, evolutionarily, did we consume 2-4 cups of animal milk as adults... or is the calcium in plants more bio-available... and it is just our low stomach acid which makes less absorbed?

Maybe our fats had more vit D too.

High calcium intake makes low mag blood levels, too!

The vit D and calcium have to do with proper parathyroid function. http://www.sciencedirect.com/science?_ob=ArticleURL&_udi=B6T99-...


In rats:

Quote:
Vitamin D regulates both intestinal calcium and phosphorus absorption to produce normal serum calcium and phosphorus levels (16 http://jn.nutrition.org/icons/ref-arrow.gif ). In the absence of vitamin D, passive intestinal absorption of calcium and phosphorus can occur in the presence of high dietary levels (16 http://jn.nutrition.org/icons/ref-arrow.gif ). Previously published research indicates that to normalize serum calcium and phosphorus levels of vitamin D–deficient rats, 20% lactose is required (17 http://jn.nutrition.org/icons/ref-arrow.gif http://jn.nutrition.org/icons/ref-arrow.gif ); a high calcium and high phosphorus diet alone is not sufficient. ,18 Lactose has been shown to increase calcium and phosphorus absorption in the ileum section of the small intestines; however, the exact mechanism is unclear (19 http://jn.nutrition.org/icons/ref-arrow.gif ,20 http://jn.nutrition.org/icons/ref-arrow.gif ).

Phosphorus and calcium are essential for tooth (and bone) health.

(Ph is another variable in tooth (and gut/immune) health. Whole food probiotics will improve gut ph, and oral flora. )
