Do you know that Calcium Pills increases Heart Attack risk by 30%?

Calcium is extremely essential in many of our body functions. In fact, approximately 1.5 - 2% of our body weight is accounted for by calcium. Calcium is required mostly for strong bone formation and prevention of osteoporosis.

In fact, due to the hectic lifestyle, people turn to calcium pills to fill the gap in their day to day diet. Are these safe?

This article published in the Straits Times talks about the risk of taking calcium pills.

"When you take calcium supplements, your blood calcium level...goes up to the top end of the normal range"

"That doesn't happen when you eat calcium in your diet because the calcium from food is very slowly absorbed and so the blood calcium level hardly changes at all"

"Higher blood calcium level may lead to the formatin of plague, or fatty deposits, in blood vessels, which can lead to heart attack, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases."

It is clear that we all need calcium. The only important choice we need to make is the source of where we are getting it from. Choose wholesome.

Here are some calcium-rich wholesome plant superfoods!
