Bel Marra Health Reports on Recent Research: Dietary Intake of Calcium Should Be Reviewed Again After Discussions of Heightened Heart Attack Risk. (amazon) (shopzilla)


Toronto, ON (PRWEB) January 18, 2013

Bel Marra Health, who offers high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, is reporting on recent research that outlines how the dietary intake of calcium should be reviewed again due to the potential of side effects.

As Bel Marra Health reports in its article (http://www.belmarrahealth.com/anti-aging/strontium-and-why-your-calcium-information-is-wrong/), while calcium supplements are commonly prescribed to post-menopausal women at risk of osteoporosis, possible side effects do exist when taking this supplement.

As the Bel Marra Health article reads, the role of calcium has been given much attention in the past few decades, resulting in the establishment of specific guidelines for its daily requirement. For instance, in the United States, the recommended calcium intake is 1,000 milligrams each day for younger adults, whereas in Europe, 800 mg per day is the suggested daily requirement for women within the age range of 50 to 65 years of age.

According to a recent medical report, the use of calcium supplements should be again reviewed because there is a possibility that its administration may result in calcium side effects. Based on the findings of the study published in Clinical Cases in Mineral and Bone Metabolism, calcium side effects may include a higher risk of heart attack, as well as an increased susceptibility for stroke or sudden death. These findings were summarized from 26 clinical trials involving adults who were taking 1,000 milligrams of calcium per day.

The medical report also described the findings of another study involving approximately 36,282 postmenopausal women who were taking 1,000 milligrams of calcium and 400 IU of vitamin D per day. In this study, a higher risk for heart attack was associated with the intake of calcium supplements in combination with vitamin D. To determine whether these calcium side effects were due to the use of two dietary supplements, the study examined the incidence of heart attack in a group that was given only vitamin D or calcium. Interestingly, the study showed that taking calcium by itself was associated with a higher risk of heart attack.

Spokesperson for Bel Marra Health Dr. Victor Marchione says, The findings of the medical report have emphasized the need to assess the use of calcium as a preventive measure against osteoporosis among the elderly. Although the use of calcium may lower the risk of hip fractures and other bone injuries among older adults, it is also important to consider other calcium side effects that may also develop at a later time.

The report also pointed out that the use of calcium is now widespread across the world and this is simply based on earlier knowledge that this mineral helps in strengthening bones and teeth. However, there is also a need to examine its interactions with other components of the body, including the activities of specific tissues and cells. The report thus presented the question of whether changes in dietary patterns are sufficient in improving the amount of calcium that enters the body.

The findings of this recent medical report have expressed the need to do further research on the benefits and risks of taking calcium pills on a daily basis.

    Four Steps to Feeling Alive After 55: Dr. Daniel Thomas, Expert in Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine Outlines What Makes People Feel Like They Are 30 Again (amazon) (shopzilla)

    Lake Mary, FL (PRWEB) June 06, 2013

    As many researchers and scientists strive to find cures for common age-related diseases such as Alzheimer’s, cancer, and heart disease, many people in their 50s and 60s who are relatively healthy can still feel weak and tired. Now, there is a new four-pronged approach from Dr. Daniel Thomas, a Lake Mary, Florida physician who specializes in metabolic and nutritional medicine. This new program is designed to help people feel energetic and youthful regardless of age. All of this is done sans synthetic pharmaceuticals and invasive procedures.

    Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine is an important field that focuses on the prevention and treatment of age-related decline. It is well supported by peer-reviewed medical and scientific journals, and utilizes individualized, evidence-based protocols that address the very source of the problem in individual patients.

    The traditional medical view of aging is one that expects you to eventually suffer from inevitable complications and a steady decline in energy and quality of life. The truth is nobody wants to get or feel old. says Dr. Thomas. After studying metabolic and nutrition for many years, Ive helped my patients regain their strength, vitality and return their bodies to a more optimal state.

    Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine combats the key underlying causes of disease and premature aging including hormone deficiency, oxidative stress, chronic inflammation, cellular membrane degradation, insulin resistance, and also promotes the bodys mechanisms of self-repair by stimulating the production of stem cells.

    Dr. Thomas four-pronged approach includes the following:

    Natural Hormone Therapy
    Detoxification
    Correcting Nutritional Deficiencies
    Lifestyle Modification

    I am grateful to Dr. Thomas who helped me to feel young again. I recommend (the program) for men and women who want to feel stronger, healthier and younger. It sure works wonders for my well-being, said Diana D., a patient of Dr. Thomas.

    1. Prescription Natural (Non-Synthetic) Hormone Therapy: Around age 40, many people begin to lose the ability to produce sufficient levels of hormones, until it reaches a point where it is difficult to keep up with the demands of daily living. The quality of life once took for granted, slowly slips away. Millions of men and women are living with sub-optimal hormone levels and do not even realize it. Restoring hormones to healthy physiologic levels is one of the safest and most effective ways to protect the body and brain as one ages.

    2. Detoxification: The fact is, says Dr. Thomas, “we live in a toxic world and our bodies are under constant attack from disease-promoting free radicals. Reducing the burden of these harmful substances is crucial in order to keep your body young and healthy. Our program provides targeted support to enhance the function of the liver in two phases.”

    3. Correcting Nutritional Deficiencies: One of the most important things people to enhance overall health is to maintain a healthy diet. The notion that food can be the answer to many ills is not new it goes back thousands of years. However, studies have shown that many of fruits and vegetables are relatively low in essential phytochemicalsnatural compounds with the potential to reduce the risk of major diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, and dementia. The program teaches patients how to eat in order to bring back necessary phytochemicals, and learn which vitamin supplements can truly increase your health and longevity so that people do not waste time or money on vitamins or supplements that do not work or may do harm.

    4. Lifestyle Modification: “Engaging in regular physical activity is one of the most important things one can do for your health,” says Dr. Thomas. “Our program includes a personalized fitness plan that takes half the time and offers twice the results. Our program also includes restoring sound sleep and effectively reducing stress, both of which may be more important that diet and exercise for health and longevity.”

    Ironically, Americans have gotten so used to seeing unhealthy people, they think its normal. We need to understand that the normal state of humans is not being sick, not taking countless medications, and not visiting the doctors office on a frequent basis, says Dr. Thomas.
