Decalcification can be caused by the improper bonding of calcium, which may in turn be the result of a Vitamin D deficiency, since Vitamin D is necessary for the proper absorption of calcium.
Good sources of Vitamin D include:
– fish liver oils
– sardines, salmon, herring
– direct sunlight
Sunlight, which stimulates pro-vitamins present in the skin, is actually your best natural source of Vitamin D.
A lack of calcium can also be indirectly caused by various health problems:
– prolonged hypo-parathyroidism
– kidney insufficiency
– chronic bone metastasis
– convulsion and leukemia treatments
Taking calcium supplements will prevent deficiencies and help combat the problem. Eating lots of dairy products and making sure you get enough Vitamin D will significantly improve your rate of calcium absorption.
Be careful about eating too many whole grains since fibre containing phytic acid can have a harmful effect: ingesting more than 1 ounce (30 grams) of fibre from whole grains will decalcify your body. If you eat a lot of grains, more dairy products will help prevent a calcium deficiency.
