Characteristics of nutrients

  • Calcium is a nutrient you want to take firmly
  • 99% is present in bones and teeth 1% in blood, cells
  • The absorption rate in the body affects the balance with other minerals
  • Ingestion of phosphorus excessively inhibits absorption of calcium
  • Too much calcium inhibits absorption of other minerals such as iron

Function of nutrients

  • Actions that stabilize muscles and nerves
  • Create strong teeth and bones
  • Calm the stress and stabilize the nerve
  • Keep myocardial function (blood pressure) normal
  • Anti-allergic action

When nutrients are deficient

  • Osteoporosis
  • Hypertension · arteriosclerosis
  • Hypocalcemia
  • obesity
  • Glycosuria
  • Immune abnormality
  • Cognitive disorders

When nutrients overdose

  • There is no overdose in a normal eating habit
  • Be aware of excessive intake by supplements
  • Often symptoms do not manifest as excessive symptoms even if taken too much
  • Constipation, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, loss of appetite

Summary

  • Calcium is deficient in Japanese diet
  • The ratio of calcium and magnesium should be 2: 1
  • It is released to the outside by the stress
  • Calcium is excreted outside the body due to excess intake of phosphorus
  • When calcium is deficient calcium is produced from the bone
  • Vitamin D promotes the deposition of calcium
  • It is more effective to consume more frequently than taking lots of it at once
  • Too much calcium hinders iron absorption
  • Try to ingest as much effort as possible
