Too Much Calcium Alone Can Be Dangerous!

Dr Betty Kamen Ph.D
In her book, Dr Betty Kamen Ph.D, exposes why 'CALCIUM MANIA' is not only absurd, but that it can be dangerous!

"We tear down our skeleton and build it back about once every 5 to 10 years. The fact that calcium absorption decreases with additional calcium intake is an example of your body's control mechanism for protection. [50]

A report in the American Journal of Medicine suggests that the reason you are absorbing LESS calcium when consuming MORE is to shield you from toxicity. [50] Too much calcium, in the absence of its metabolic cofactors, is regarded as TOXIC."

"Based on research and clinical experience, plus the studies of world renowned experts, taking more than a low-dose calcium supplement is unnecessary and taking calcium alone is worthless. "


THE MILK DILEMMA:


Book

"Americans drink more milk than the people of any other nation. Yet we have the higest incidence of bone problems." [3]

"Milk, because it is so rich in animal protein, often causes a greater calcium loss than gain - referred to as negative calcium balance. [17] This fact may come as a surprise, even to the proessionals, who have been conditioned to believe that cow's milk is a 'perfect' food and a major source of clacium. Cow's milk is perfect food - for a calf"

"Animals do not consume milk after weaning, nor do they ever consume the milk of another species. Note that cows eat only grass, yet they build tremendous bone structures."

"Women who develop osteoporosis have been shown to have a greater degree of lactose intolerance than those who do not."

"Almost all foods which contain lactose are processed, hard to digest and generally do not enhance immune capacity or bone health. And that includes milk! (It has even been shown that lactose increases cholesterol.)

"CALCIUM ALONE DOES NOT PREVENT OSTEOPOROSIS"
Dr Betty Kamen Ph.D

ALPHA 'Calcium Health Support' is different than other calcium supplements because we take Calcium Citrate and combine it with the right amount of other important minerals that work together to maximize the absorption of Calcium as well as enhance the way it is used by your body.

For example, Vitamin D3 greatly increases your ability to absorb calcium while your body uses Magnesium to regulate the way it uses and stores calcium. Without Magnesium, calcium can accumulate in unwanted areas of your body such as soft tissue (which can lead to arthritis). Zinc enhances the bio-availibity and delivery of other minerals and Boron is also necessary in order for your body to generate healthy bones. ALPHA Calcium Health Support includes each of these ingredients as well as other minerals, all of which work together to provide you with a safer and more effective calcium supplement!

Calcium Health Support does what most other companies fail to do and that is add Hyaluronic Acid for joint lubrication. There is more to bone health than just your bones.


Many people don't realize that you replace your skeleton every 7-10 years. How can your body rebuild your bones without the necessary nutrition?

OUR GUIDELINES 

  1. Dr Guy Abraham's study of Calcium/Magnesium supplements.
  2. 12 year Harvard University study of 77,761 nurses drinking milk
  3. Dr Betty Kamen Ph.D recommendations.
  4. Worldwide Calcium/Magnesium Ratio research.
  5. Added Collagen for joint cartilage and Hyaluronic Acid for joint lubrication.
  • CALCIUM - MAGNESIUM RATIO:
    We use the same RATIO of Calcium to Magnesiun as the Dr Guy Abraham Study of 1 part calcium to 1.2 parts of Magnesium. - 500 mg calcium with 600 mg magnesium for osteopenia/osteoporosis. (We use 50% of that for maintenance. e.g. 250 mg calcium with 300 mg magnesium)

  • 12 YEAR HARVARD UNIVERSITY STUDY OF 77,761 NURSES.:
    The Harvard Nurses Study was an investigation into osteoporosis and bone loss in women. From 1980 to 1992 the study followed 77,761 women between ages 34 and 59 to determine the relationship between milk consumption and osteoporosis. "Those who drank three or more glasses of milk per day had no reduction in the risk of hip or arm fractures over the 12-year period, compared to women who drank little or no milk, even after adjustment for weight, menopausal status, smoking, and alcohol use. Fracture rates were higher for those who consumed three or more servings, compared to those who did not drink milk."

  • COFACTORS:
    We use the ingredients and COFACTORS recommend by Dr Betty Kamen in her book "Startling New Facts About OSTEOPOROSIS". Without these vital nutrients, you could be overdosing on calcium. When calcium alone is taken in a high dosage, calcium absorption actually decreases. This is an example of your body's control mechanism protecting you from toxicity. [50]

  • ADDED COLLAGEN & HYLURONIC ACID::
    We have added 'COLLAGEN' (for joint cartiladge) and 'HYALURONIC ACID' (for joint lubrication) to complete the 'Ultimate' Cal-Mag support
  • WORLDWIDE CALCIUM/MAGNESIUM RESEARCH:
    We use the research showing that countries that have a HIGHER Magnesium to Calcium ratio have less problems with osteoporsis and its resulting bone fractures.Osteoporosis is most common in countries where dairy consumption is highest like Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, and the Scandinavian countries.

  • NATURAL INGREDIENTS FOR MAXIMUM ABSORPTION:
    We choose the most NATURAL ingredients so you get the best and most ABSORBABLE liquid calcium supplement available without paying a ridiculous price. Remember... a small amount of 'Natural' ingredients in a liquid form form are more effective than large amounts of 'Synthetic' ingredients in tablet form.
  • BALANCE:
    Did you know that too much calcium depletes copper and that it also reduces zinc absorbtion in bone. There is a finite range between the extremes of deficiency and toxicity. Alpha Health Support uses a balanced approach by using the essential nutrients recommended by research and the recommendations of Dr Betty Kamen Ph.D

  VITAMIN D3  

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin found in certain foods and is manufactured in the skin as a result of direct exposure to sunlight. The liver and kidneys convert vitamin D from food sources or sunlight to its active form, calcitriol.

Vitamin D helps the body maintain healthy levels of calcium and phosphorus and is therefore essential for building and maintaining healthy bones. Calcium, which is the principal element in bone, can be absorbed by the body only when vitamin D is present.

Rickets, a vitamin D deficiency disease responsible for softening and weakening bones in children, used to be quite common but now is rarely seen in countries that have adopted the practice of fortifying milk products. Vitamin D and calcium are involved in many body functions, including keeping the immune and nervous systems healthy.

Low concentrations of Vitamin D may lead to malabsorption of calcium and bone loss to an even greater degree in older house-bound people. [31] Our sedentary lifestyle, coupled with our poor dietary intake, is undoubtedly a major contributor to bone disease.

We use Vitamin D3 cholecalciferol which is the better form of vitamin D

Back To Ingredients
  CALCIUM  

We use the same RATIO of calcium to magnesion as the Dr Guy Abraham study of 1 part calcium to 1.2 parts of Magnesium. - 167 mg calcium - 200 mg magnesium.

Discrepancies in labeling can be deceptive and make people believe they are getting more calcium than they think they are. Unless the ingredients are in brackets ( ) you are only getting a fraction of the ingredient, e.g. Calcium Citrate 1000 mg is the same as Calcium (Citrate) 210 mg.

NOTE: All our ingredients are 'ELEMENTAL'. e.g. Our 167 mg is ALL calcium

We use Calcium Malate because it is the best calcium supplement for absorption.

Back To Ingredients
  MAGNESIUM  

The mineral magnesium is important for every organ in the body, particularly the heart, muscles, and kidneys. It also contributes to the composition of teeth and bones.

Most importantly, it activates enzymes, contributes to energy production, and helps regulate calcium levels as well as copper, zinc, potassium, vitamin D, and other important nutrients in the body.

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.

Magnesium is available in many foods. However, most people in the United States probably do not get as much magnesium as they should from their diet.

We use Magnesium Citrate which is the natural form of Magnesium.

Back To Ingredients
  ZINC  

Zinc is an essential trace mineral, which means that it must be obtained from the diet since the body cannot make enough. [27] Next to iron, zinc is the most abundant trace mineral in the body.

Stored primarily in muscle, zinc is also found in high concentrations in red and white blood cells, the retina of the eye, bones, skin, kidneys, liver, and pancreas. In men, the prostate gland stores high amounts of zinc.

Zinc plays an important role in the immune system, which may explain why it is helpful in protecting against infections such as colds. Zinc also plays a role in the regulation of appetite, stress level, taste, and smell.

It is important to know that too much calcium reduces zinc absorption in bone.

We use Zinc Citrate which is the natural form of Zinc.

Back To Ingredients
  SELENIUM  

Selenium is an essential mineral found in trace amounts in the human body. It works as an antioxidant, especially when combined with vitamin E, by scavenging damaging particles in the body known as free radicals.

These particles occur naturally in the body but can damage cell membranes, interact with genetic material, and possibly contribute to the aging process as well as the development of a number of conditions including heart disease and cancer.

We use Sodium Selenomethionine which is the more natural form of Selenium.

Back To Ingredients
  MANGANESE  

Manganese is a mineral found in large quantities in both plant and animal matter. Only trace amounts of this element can be found in human tissue.

Manganese is predominantly stored in the bones, liver, kidney, and pancreas. It aids in the formation of connective tissue, bones, blood-clotting factors, and sex hormones and plays a role in fat and carbohydrate metabolism, calcium absorption, and blood sugar regulation.

Manganese is also necessary for normal brain and nerve function.

Bran and foods high in phosphorous and low in calcium deplete manganese.

We use Manganese Citrate which is the natural form of Manganese.

Back To Ingredients
  CHROMIUM  

Chromium deficiency severely impairs glucose tolerance. We have added Chromium - GTF, because without insulin, we are at risk for osteoporosis. (GTF stands for Glucose Tolerance Factor, which is the ability to regulate blood sugar level.)

We use natural polynicotinate which is food based and organic. Other forms of chromium are inorganic such as chromium picolinate, chromium chloride and chromium chelate.

Back To Ingredients
  BORON  

Boron is a trace element which has an important influence on both calcium and magnesium metabolism and helps in the manufacturer of vitamin D.

Boron is concentrated in the bone, spleen, and thyroid indicating boron's functions in bone metabolism and suggesting a potential role for boron in hormone metabolism.

Boron also reduces calcium, magnesium and estrogen losses thus playing a major role in preventing bone loss.

Boron is thought to be useful to increase muscle mass; increase muscle strength; maintain bone density; improve calcium absorption; decrease body fat.

We use Boron Citrate which is the natural form of Boron.

Back To Ingredients
  SILICA  

Silica, also known as Silicon, is derived from the horsetail herb and is the most abundant element on the planet. Our body needs it for the formation of collagen for bones and connective tissue; for healthy nails, skin, and hair; and for calcium absorption in the early stages of bone formation.

Bone growth involves the process of adding calcium for hardness, plus increasing collagen. Silicon is essential for both of these processes.

Among the known catalysts that facilitate the functions of silicon indirectly are magnesium, manganese, potassium and boron.

We use silicon found in horsetail. It is believed to promote bone and cartilage formation and is useful for treating brittle nails and related conditions.

  PEA PROTEIN ISOLATE  

Pea Protein Isolate is 18 Amino Acids found naturally in Nature. This allows us to make the Calcium Health Support available for Vegans. Click here to see all of the amino acids

Back To Ingredients  
  HYALURONIC ACID  

Hyaluronic Acid (or Hyaluronan) is natures healing agent and space filler" for the skin, hair, eyes and joints, It is the major component of synovial fluid which lubricates the joints and helps to maintains healthy connective tissue. Research shows that Hyaluronic Acid has anti-inflammatory and anitoxidant properties as well as the ability to reduce swelling.

It encourages the growth and activity of cells in the bone marrow for new bone formation and is responsible for cartilage production. It also restores elasticity and hydration to the skin and accelerates the repair of cuts and bruises.

Dr Marin Dr Melody Marin DC, QME

"All nutrients such as vitamins, proteins, enzymes, amino acids, carbohydrates, fats, sugars, oils, etc, require minerals for activity. Therefore vitamins and minerals should be taken separately"

"As the day dawns and we awake from our sleep, our brain needs certain chemicals to prepare the body for its daily tasks".

"Minerals are an important supplement needed to activate vitamins, proteins, enzymes, fat and carbohydrates to keep the body healthy".

"Supplementing with minerals becomes even more important as the demand for food increases and our soil and plants become more and more depleted in vital minerals. The level of minerals found even in organic fruits and vegetables is less than it was ten years ago".

"It is logical that chronic degenerative diseases have also increased, and it is concerning that not only are there more people suffering with diabetes, osteoporosis, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, etc, but that they are getting diagnosed with these types of diseases at a younger age".

"Organic minerals are easily supplemented in our diets and should be taken first thing in the morning as a liquid added to water or fruit juice. This prepares the body to maximize the amount of food and vitamins absorbed into your cells, and vitalizes you at the start of your day".

"After taking your minerals do 15 minutes of exercise and then eat a healthy breakfast. This simple morning ritual is an important part of getting your cells activated. Taking your vitamins and protein supplements with breakfast will quickly make you feel re-vitalized for a great day".

Dr M. Marin DC, QME


WHY TAKE VITAMINS AND MINERALS SEPARATELY?

      • Minerals are needed to assist in the body's absorption of all nutrients. Taking minerals separately from your vitamins means greater efficiency and absorption.
      • Taking vitamins and minerals separately gives a more 'flexible' approach to balance your daily nutritional needs.
      • You could be overdosing on some nutrients because some people require less vitamins than minerals and others vice versa.
      • Mineral potency is reduced 25% when mixed with vitamins..
      • You could be allergic to just one ingredient and that would prevent you from taking the whole supplement.
      • They are concentrated. Each bottle is one months supply
      • Two smaller bottles are more convenient for traveling and storage, etc.
      • Our VITAMIN SUPPORT PACK consists of one bottle of Vitamin Health Support and one bottle of Mineral Health Support and has been designed specifically to compliment each other for a balanced approach to healthy nutrition, which is why they are preferable to one big bottle of 'mixed' nutrients?

It is all about 'Absorption and the ability of the vitamins to enter the blood cells. Vitamin Support Pack achieves this by using:

      • LIQUID: The absorption rate of tablets is poor and in many cases they pass through your body so you are literally throwing your money away.
      • NATURAL INGREDIENTS:
      • BALANCED formula using the RDA for MODERATION.

The most efficient and healthiest way to get balanced nutrition is to take a small amount of natural vitamins in a liquid with a good balance of your daily vitamin needs using the RDA for moderation.

 

We have now added 19 'Amino Acids' to our vitamins.

Amino Acids are the "building blocks" of the body that make up proteins. Proteins make the muscles, tendons, organs, glands, nails, and hair. Growth, repair and maintenance of all cells are dependent upon them. Amino Acids that must be obtained from the diet are called "Essential Amino Acids" other Amino Acids that the body can manufacture from other sources are called "NonEssential Amino Acids."
