4 "descaling" food

To prevent the loss of calcium, it is important that, in addition to avoid those foods that prevent their assimilation, we increase the consumption of foods rich in this mineral
4 alimentos “descalcificantes”
Did you know that there are foods that can remove calcium from your body and cause certain diseases? Lhypocalcemia, as it is called in medical terms, is very common not only after age 40, but on a diet with a lot of food descaling. You know what the following article.

What is hypocalcemia and produces what?

It's an imbalance in the levels of calcium in the blood. In adults, the normal value is 4.5-5.5 mEq/liter. It is very important to have the proper amount of calcium for bones and teeth healthy, as well as to make our muscles and nerves to function properly. It is good to know that normal levels are maintained by the action of parathyroid hormone, intestines and kidneys.
Hypocalcemia may be due, among other factors, a:
  • Lack of vitamin D
  • Chronic renal failure
  • Magnesium deficit
  • Alcoholism
  • Certain types of leukemia or blood disorders
  • Treatments with bifosfatos, medicines that treat osteoporosis
  • Medications such as diuretics, laxatives, insulin, estrogen, or glucose
  • Caffeine, soft drinks
The symptoms most common lack of calcium in the body are:
  • Neuromuscular irritability, is to say that the function of nerves and muscles affected by spasms or crampsin legs and arms
  • Numbness or stinging sensation in the fingers of the hands and even tremors
  • Depression or irritability
  • Confusion, disorientation
  • Heart palpitations
  • Increased urinary frequency, pain when urinating
  • Weight loss without diet or exercise
  • Shortness of breath, chest pain
  • Swelling of lips
  • Nausea, inability to eat
  • Diarrhea that is not alleviated after two days

What foods are descaling

In order to maintain a good health in our bones is necessary to take into account what are the foods that absorb the calcium or that remove it from our agency:
  • Animal proteins: on a diet dominated by red meat, poultry and eggs often have metabolic acidosis, i.e. a disorder in the body that causes an increased elimination of calcium in the blood.
  • Sodium: eat much salt increases the excretion of calcium through urine. To avoid this, it is necessary to consume producer without added s, enalatados, salty snacks, meals already prepared and empanadas, fast food. It is important to reduce consumption by preparing food and if possible not take the salt shaker at table. The correct daily amount is up to 2 grams.
  • Tobacco: although it is not a food, is also within the most important descalers. People who smoke are more vulnerable to losing calcium, especially in the case of women over the age of 40 years, i.e., after the menopause. 
  • Sugary soft drinks: drinks cola are very bad for the body for different reasons. In addition to lots of sugar and excitement, they have a high content of phosphorus (in the form of phosphoric acid). This mineral in small amounts is good, but in soft drinks is anti-competitive effects. Favors, like meat, acidosis.
  • Alcohol, coffee, refined products (white bread, rice, flour and sugar), because they favor the removal of minerals such as calcium from the body.

Dairy products, descalcifican bones?

A research of Harvard University has eliminated dairy products called "food pyramid". Is that it has come to the conclusion that these foods, contrary to what is popularly, believed are not suitable for the calcium that your body needs.
The milk is not necessary for our organism once we have passed the nursing period, since it causes acidification in the blood, i.e., that breaks with the acid-base balance. Not only this is caused by dairy products, but also for meat, the stress, the lack of physical activity, drink little water, etc.
And, as noted previously, acidification is synonymous with lack of calcium in the blood. The body attempts to balance this irregularity with phosphorus, which is stored in the bones (are made of these elements basically). To take phosphorus and regulate pH, is going "undoing" calcium.
Thus, with regular consumption of dairy products, the Agency will decalcifying a little bones to be able to balance the blood. Among other consequences of the imbalance of the pH: irritability, lack of concentration, chronic fatigue, susceptibility to diseases, allergies or infections, etc.

How to control descaling food intake?

A diet that is too rich in foods that removes calcium need, as opposed, an intake above those who if they provide it. So, avoid the health problems associated with this nutrient deficit. The problem is that foods that "removes" calcium, bring phosphorus, which is vital for a functioning brain, heart, muscle, tissue, bone level, for the metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates and fats and for energy.
Phosphorus is indispensable in the stages of growth and development of children, it is necessary to perform a balance either increasing foods that provide more calcium, for example, dairy, green leafy vegetables, Sesame, almonds, dates, dried figs, raisins, citrus (Orange, lemon, grapefruit), kiwi Blackberries, raspberries, papayas, carrots, cabbage, beans, onions, leeks, artichokes, celery, turnip, Witloof chicory, cauliflower and algae.
