In oligotherapy the calcium for the bones in the treatment of disorders of calcium fixation and bone metabolism, osteoporosis, osteomalacia.


Il football plays a fundamental role in the mineralization process of the osteo-articular system, in many enzymatic activities and in numerous phases of blood coagulation.

Trace elements are biocatalysts capable of activating the chemical and metabolic reactions essential to life. Their deficiency induces structural and physiological alterations, administered at the right doses they prevent and heal states of deficiency. They are present in infinitesimal quantities in all living organisms (in plants, animals and humans). They are easily assimilated, as they have a molecular form that does not cause accumulations in the body, so they are not like synthetic drugs that partially replace a deficient functioning.


Drugs are usually eliminated through the excretory organs (liver, kidneys, lungs and skin), while trace elements enter the cellular tissue, restoring the body to a state of functional equilibrium.

 

The bones: characteristics and functions

Bones are particularly hard organs, with variable shape, density and size according to the functions performed. Taken together, they participate in the formation of the skeletal system, an apparently inert structure, but alive and endowed with numerous, very important, functions.


The particular structure of the tissue that composes them gives the bones four important characteristics, exceptional because they are difficult to combine: lightness, resistance, hardness ed elasticity.

Among the functions performed by the skeletal system, the main one is support for the whole organism; allows the movement of the body through muscle contractions; performs an action of protection of vital organs and other soft parts; and represents a support for the attachment of muscles and tendons.


To these functions must be added an important hematopoietic role e metabolic: in the bone marrow occurs the production of blood cells; and the bones as a whole constitute aimportant mineral reserve.

The trace element calcium and its action on the bones

For the bones football plays an action indispensable for their growth and health, as it ensures their density andelasticity. It is the most abundant mineral in the human body, contained almost entirely in bones and teeth, in the form of calcium phosphate.

Its intake is indicated to combat the tendency to caries; prevent and treatOsteoporosis and descaling in menopause; avoids the phenomenon of rickets during the growth of the child; and helps with calcification afterwards bone fractures. It is also indicated for nail problems, rheumatism, eczema. Calcium is necessary for proper muscle development, prevents cramps and contractures. It also stimulates the metabolism cellular, the assimilation of nutrients and the production of energy.


It is indicated during pregnancy and lactation when the maternal organism loses it due to milk production. Fundamental to thebalance of the nervous system, it is necessary to maintain normal heart rate, muscle contraction and nerve conduction. calcium lowers cholesterol, stabilizes the heart rhythm and regulates blood clotting and pH. Calcium and Vitamin A: an excellent combination for maintaining healthy skin and preventing the formation of eczema.

 

Calcium and its intake

Calcium for bones, and their proper functioning, is found primarily in foods (milk, algae, cereals, legumes, cabbage, oil seeds) and in plants such as horsetail, maca and spirulina.


In adults, the requirement is 800-900 mg per day, while in pregnancy and lactation it is 1,5-2 g per day.
