Click book title for more information

We are generally more deficient in calcium than in any of the 30 other minerals the body needs to maintain health and sufficient Nerve Force. Calcium levels in the correct proportion give us sound teeth, strong bones, nerves of steel, good muscle and skin tone, a regular heart beat, an erect posture, a sharp mind and healthy vital organs. If your blood calcium level drops too much you may become nervous, cross, moody, depressed, grouchy and irritated. Calcium helps control your health and moods as it shapes your entire personality.

Calcium is all-important for proper functioning of the nerves. This mineral helps to transport impulses through the nerves from one part of the body to the other. Without calcium, you would not be able to pull your hand away from a hot stove, get out of the way of an oncoming car or even taste the food you eat! Calcium deficiency may cause cramps or convulsions, heart palpitations or a slow pulse. Calcium also helps maintain the body’s delicate acid-alkaline balance, Bragg Vinegar helps also.

Calcium deficiencies can be readily recognized by stunted growth, decayed teeth and brittle or porous bones which show up in x-rays. It is more difficult, however, to recognize calcium deficiencies that produce changes in the soft tissues. Yet these are the warning signs which we must learn to detect in order to prevent unnecessary misery and physical handicaps.

Only 1% of the body’s calcium is used by the soft tissues. But if this essential 1% is lacking it flashes a danger signal of calcium deficiency. The most noticeable sign is extreme nervousness. Without the proper amount of calcium in the blood, the nerves cannot send messages. Tension and strain result. It is impossible for the body to relax. This is apparent in children who are highly emotional. It shows first in a mean and unpleasant disposition, fretful crying and temper tantrums which later developing into muscular twitching, spasms and even convulsions.
