NUTRITIONAL CURE FOR ULCERS

People with digestive ulcers tend to take large amounts of calcium carbonate to neutralize gastric acidity. This can result in too much calcium circulating in your system.

Phytic acid, found in the husks of grains and the peel of vegetables and nuts, combines with calcium in the intestines to form non-absorbable calcium phytate, which in turn can inhibit overall calcium absorption, resulting in a deficiency.

Persons who ingest less than 400 milligrams of calcium per day run the risk of developing a deficiency.
