Is Your Calcium Supplement Killing You?
New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Is Your Calcium Supplement Killing You??
hey dr. Berg here in this video we’re going to talk about the risks of calcium supplements that’s right primarily the supplement calcium carbonate now calcium carbonate is a form of calcium that is basically the limestone it’s rocks and that’s in probably all of the most popular traditional multivitamins and calcium supplements that you get on the market from CVS and it’s the most common recommended calcium by doctors okay it’s pretty much it’s rock stone you can you’d be better off chewing on the cement outside because it’s not meant for humans alright there’s been some new research that even says that when you take calcium carbonate in vitamin D it does nothing for bones I provided a link in fact it will increase the risk of cardiovascular accidents or incidents now why is that because when you have plaquing that plaquing is not just cholesterol plaquing it’s calcium plaquing but you don’t really hear any anti calcium movement it’s more like anti cholesterol which is very interesting because if you have coronary artery calcification which is too much plaquing in those arteries your risk factors for heart attacks go up by 1,600 percent and I really I think I know why number one it’s the source of calcium that you’re taking which is the wrong source and then the other thing is that every decade a person ages there are pH in their in their stomach it gets weaker and weaker and weaker now in its normal stomach and and you can check on this I created a gall bladder video you should watch if you want more information on this but the stomach should be between one and three that’s if you ever studied chemistry pH neutral is 7 and then it goes down that’s more acid okay so if it’s a 1 it’s so acidic it can dissolve a razorblade so it should be between 1 and 3 and that’s very acid that’s why you need this stomach very acid but every decade you age you lose some of that acid when you get into your 50s 60s 70s and 80s oh my gosh there’s hardly any acid in your stomach and that’s why you see a lot of people when they get older to start having indigestion gasps heartburn that is not too much acid that’s not enough acid and some of the waste acid is coming up through the lower intestinal tract splashing up here and that’s why they’re taking things like Bravo sack and tums which is the exact opposite thing you want to do because now we’re going to take out that last bit of acid they had and they’re not going to digest and they’re going to just feel bloated and they have to keep taking it so it’s not very corrective but anyway when you lose your stomach acids your blood pH starts becoming a bit more alkaline – okay so when it comes to alkaline now you can’t absorb calcium calcium is very alkaline in order to absorb it you need a very acidic stomach and a very aslam the correct pH in your blood you don’t want it too alkaline it’s called alkalosis calcium does not absorb where does it go if it’s not absorbing in the bone of the muscle it’s going on top of the bone as arthritis bursitis tendinitis on the joints is it’s calcium deposits heel spurs cataracts on the eyes on the nerve is twitching on the left I get cramps in the lower calf’s you’ll get stones and the kidney stones in the gallbladder calcification of your arteries yeah that’s all from pH problems so we have also what caused the alkaline pH would be high levels of stress or that high cortisol that adrenal hormone again that can also make your pH so alkaline that your calcium won’t be really absorbed properly it’s kind of like if you ever go outside and your faucet outside you’ll see that little calcium ring around the faucet that’s because the pH is a too alkaline in the water and that calcium comes on a solution and deposits around the little ring and it’s just a pH thing so again your body’s people are becoming calcified and especially because you’re taking so much calcium carbonate all right another cause would be excess vitamin D this is interesting because how many people are taking vitamin D now now I did create a video on vitamin D and you should watch it if you have not I think it’s under the new it’s in one of the blog videos you’ll be able to find on the page but here’s the interesting thing about vitamin D vitamin D takes the calcium from your stomach and puts it into the blood it concentrates it into the blood all right and then from the blood vitamin F which is the helper vitamin takes it into the tissues the bones things like that so if you’re not having enough vitamin F which very few people even know what that vitamin is and I’ll just buy them in D and calcium carbonate and you’re older oh my gosh you’re just like calcifying your meat you becoming a rock you’re going to get stiff you can have all sorts of stones kidney stones what you need to do is take a vitamin F vitamin F is in the flax oil cod liver oil but flax oil is a really good vitamin F source okay so that would help you balance out vitamin F I’m just having vitamin D so they both work together another cause of excess vitamin D would be stress because that cortisol again depletes and blocks the absorption of vitamin D these are all just potential causes of problems with with calcification on your arteries that I want you to look at rather than just having a one view point you know fixed idea on it so we got low vitamin F stress and low bile okay now we got we’re back to the gallbladder again bile is the detergent that breaks down the grease it’s made by that liver it comes with a gallbladder it helps you absorb fats specifically fat soluble vitamins and that would be vitamin D vitamin D is a fat-soluble so if we have a liver problem or gallbladder problem or no gallbladder at all you don’t really absorb vitamin D very well and so you’re going to be taking all this vitamin D but it’s not really going in your bias being stored in the liver and the kidney and that’s why too much vitamin D causes more stones and kidney stones things like that and just as a side note vitamin A helps protect against kidney stones as well and that would be in the kale okay I remember that now there’s two types of minerals you have rock base minerals from the soil and then you have plant based minerals the way nature is intended is the plant is designed to break down the rocks in the soil and through enzymes and break them pull them into the plant and convert them into a plant base mineral that then we can actually observe in our bodies that’s how its design but people don’t pay attention to that they just eat the rocks like calcium carbonate I’m going to recommend you get your calcium from not necessarily milk because it’s pasteurized unless you have a raw milk because when you heat the milk you you actually destroy the absorption of the calcium but more in a fermented milk source would be something like cheese yogurt kefir or any of the greens like spinach has a lot of calcium or almonds or other nuts or sea kelp okay so I just wanted to again bring your awareness up on this darn calcium because if you think you’re getting your calcium from taking that calcium carbonate which the bottle is like a paperweight it’s so heavy it’s it’s a joke and now they’re finding the calcium carbonate actually causes you know heart heart heart attacks it’s just insane so again we boil down to the problem where if you’re going to someone they’re not trained properly in nutrition you may get the wrong advice
