Calcium is a microelement significantly important for the good functioning of the body and is the main component of the skeleton, teeth, cells, with an essential role in the metabolic processes. The necessary intake of calcium can be supplemented also by a calcic sparkling mineral water, such as AQUA Carpatica, in the classic or Forte version.
What is Calcium?
Calcium is the mineral element most present in the body and is concentrated in the bones, teeth, tendons, nails but also in the cell nucleus. Besides magnesium, it assures the adequate functioning of the cardiovascular system, by assuring the heartbeats, but also of the nervous system, because it is a remedy against insomnias and it is essential in transmitting the nerve impulses.
Calcium is involved in multiple essential metabolic processes such as: blood coagulation, adjusting the permeability of cellular membranes, limiting the allergic processes, stimulating the gastric secretion, metabolization of iron, efficient use of vitamin B12 and hormone release.
The calcium deficiency occurs when the food calcium content is not sufficient to assure the necessary functions and the body compensates from bones, teeth and tissues, weakening them. Among the diseases caused by the calcium deficiency are rickets, osteoporosis, osteomalacia, muscular spasms, light-headedness and weakness, insomnia and irritability. Calcium is assimilated only in the presence of vitamin D and sunrays.
On the other hand, an excessive amount of calcium in the body leads to hypocalcaemia, urinary infections, kidney stones. In the case of calcium surplus, treatment is prescribed to suppress vitamin D and calcium inhibitors.
What do doctors say?
Doctors’ recommendation for adults is to assure a daily calcium amount between 800 and 1200 mg, both from food (dairy products, soy, tofu, hazelnut, walnuts, broccoli, sardines, salmon) and from the natural sparkling waters. The persons with hypocalcaemia are recommended to increase the dose up to maximum 1500 mg of calcium per day.
AQUA Carpatica mineral sparkling water – is, due to the content of calcium, an ideal water to compensate for the lack of calcium in the body by its very good macro and microelements mineralization. It has a content of calcium of 286 mg/l, one litre of AQUA Carpatica assuring a third of the average recommended quantity and it is charged with natural carbon dioxide from the source.
