Getting Enough Calcium? Try These Non-Dairy Sources

Mar 14th, 2011 Posted in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Getting Enough Calcium? Try These Non-Dairy Sources

Getting enough good quality calcium is difficult for most people, especially if you do not consume dairy products (which I don’t really recommend anyway). Get good quality, absorbable calcium from foods such as almonds and sesame seeds, spinach, broccoli and fortified oatmeal. These foods are alkaline forming in the blood, meaning that the calcium ingested has the best chance of being absorbed into the bones.
Still not getting enough? Supplement with VitaTree’s Whole Food Calcium. This is high quality coral calcium that is well absorbed and utilized by the body, and it is alkalinizing too.

How do I know if my Vitamin is Synthetic?

There is a problem with taking synthetic vitamins because they are just that, synthetic. Most vitamins are made from chemicals and may have harmful effects on your cells if taken regularly because just like any other chemical, they need to be detoxified by the body. Long term studies have shown a link between the consumption of synthetic vitamins and cancer!

You can check your labels to see if any of these ingredients are listed. If they are, then you are assured it is SYNTHETIC and should be avoided:

Vitamin A (Retinyl Palmitate)
Vitamin C (as Ascorbic Acid)
Vitamin E (as d-alpha Tocopherol)
Thiamine (from Thiamine HCl) (Vitamin B-1)
Riboflavin (Vitamin B-2)
Niacin (as Niacinamide) (Vitamin B-3)
Vitamin B-6 (from Pyridoxine HCl)
Folic Acid
Vitamin B-12 (as Cyanocobalamin)

If you see any of the above ingredients, they are synthetically made vitamins. Your vitamin should say 100% whole food and should list the fruits and vegetables it contains only, without any yeasts or other culture mediums for the vitamins. Whole food vitamins like VitaFruits and VitaVeggies from VitaTree are derived directly from nature, namely fruits and vegetables. The body recognizes these nutrients and uses them efficiently in the body cells.
