- Calcium insufficiency
physicians agree that the majority of Americans are not consuming the adequate
amount of calcium in the diet that they should. So, what's the big deal most people
say? Well, a lot!
to the RDA, adults should consume at least 1000 mg calcium per day, and pregnant
or post-menopausal women should be taking in close to 1800 mg calcium per day.
So, what happens if you don't take in enough calcium? Well, first lets' talk about
the role calcium plays in the body.
is an essential mineral that is utilized for many complex bodily reactions in
your body. For example, it's necessary for your muscles to contract during exercise,
to maintain a healthy heart beat, and to allow certain hormones to be released
in the blood during normal food metabolism (like insulin). This is all in addition
to being the primary ingredient in bone growth in the body. Calcium is vital for
proper bone formation and growth not only in young children and adolescents, but
in adults and the elderly as well! Basically, you can never stop utilizing calcium,
even when your 70 years old! This is especially important for those of you taking
growth hormone to grow taller.
addition, it's been recently reported that calcium plays an integral role in fat
metabolism and energy expenditure. So if you're not taking sufficient calcium
every day, you might actually be negatively affecting your body's tendency to
lose weight in addition to preventing your bones from becoming stronger and growing
I want to grow taller, what should I do? Well, for starters you should be taking
growth supplement to allow your muscles and bones to grow bigger. In addition,
as previously stated, you need to be taking in an adequate amount of calcium in
order for the growth supplements to exert their effect. Growth hormone and calcium
is kind of like lifting weights and eating protein - in order for the first to
do it's job, you need to be consuming the right vitamins and minerals in order
for your body to make bigger muscles or make your bones grow stronger and longer.
how can you make sure that you're obtaining the right amount of calcium every
day? For starters, if you're a pregnant or post-menopausal women (45+), you should
definitely be taking some sort of calcium supplement. In addition, if you're a
normal adult male (especially if you're yearning to grow taller), then you should
also be taking in at least 1000 mg calcium a day. Some good sources of calcium
are low fat milk, calcium fortified orange juice, kale, or cottage cheese.
taking the right diet will not give you the optimal results you need. The calcium
only gives you the maximal effect if you're taking the adequate amount of supplements
- it's GEP supplements that helps
build you longer, stronger bones! The growth hormone acts as the trigger that
set the process in motion, but the calcium is one of the major ingredients that
actually builds and strengthens your bones. So as you order the growth supplement,
remember to consume the appropriate amount of calcium in order to allow you to
grow as much as you can. So go to your fridge right now and pour a tall cold glass
of milk and enjoy~*
