Calcium is DESTROYING Your Brain?!

Your mainstream doc tells you every chance he gets that you NEED more calcium.

He’ll swear it’s perfectly safe… and it’s the only way to keep your bones healthy as you age.

Well, I’m here to tell you that he’s WRONG.

Calcium doeslittle for your bones… and it’s far from safe.

In fact, new research shows that this popular supplement can DESTROY your brain.

Here’s what you need to know.

A new study published in the British Journal of Nutrition has found that supplementing with calcium can cause serious damage to your brain.

For the research, scientists analyzed calcium supplementation and brain health in 227 seniors.

All participants underwent MRI brain scans.

Atthe end, the researchers found folks taking calcium supplements – even in small amounts – had increased risk of brain lesions.

Experts report that these dangerous lesions can lead to memory issue and are caused by lack of blood flow. Calcium is to blame for this because it can harden and block your arteries, which reduces the amount that reaches your brain.

Even worse? Recent studies show that calcium supplements contribute to heart disease, pineal gland (a gland in your brain) calcification, and even Alzheimer’s disease.

All of this may be worth it if taking calcium supplements actually made better bones – because breaking a bone when you are older can dramatically shorten your life.

And study after study showsthat taking calcium (especially large amounts of calcium) will indeed fill up your bones with calcium.

But denser bones are not better bones and people still break them just as often as if they had not taken calcium at all.

All this can be confusing because, yes, calcium is important for building bones.

But all you have to do is look at strict vegetarians like elephants and giraffes to find that you can get enough calcium if you eat the right foods.

Now I’m not suggesting you become vegetarian (far from it!), but what I am suggesting is that you eat the right nutrients in order to build bones of which calcium is only one of many.

If you’re worried about getting enough calcium, add some green leafy vegetables to your diet.
