The human body has a need for calcium. Calcium enables us to have strong bones and prevents bone loss diseases such as osteoporosis. The effects of depleted calcium levels span far beyond the scope of weakened bones.

Studies done at the Osteoporosis Research Center at Creighton University found that calcium plays a major role in many bodily functions. Unfortunately, estimates from federal health statistics show that only 20% of Americans are getting the levels of calcium required for proper body function. This deficiency can have resounding effects as calcium is particularly important for the heart and the circulatory system.

Research shows that calcium can also aid in the prevention of weight gain, as well as the maintenance of healthy weight levels. When the body does not receive enough calcium, it enters emergency starvation mode, and begins to leach calcium into the bloodstream. The hormones involved in stimulating this response (parathyroid hormone and calcitriol) are also responsible for stimulating and storing fat cells.

Adequate amounts of calcium provide for healthy hair, nails and teeth. Without enough dietary calcium, the body extracts it from the bones. Good levels of calcium in the body are important at all ages, whether it be growing children or the elderly at risk for osteoporosis.

Supplementing With Calcium

Calcium orotate is the single most effective form of calcium supplement. Extensive research done by Hans A. Nieper, M.D. has shown that orotates penetrate cell membranes, enabling the effective delivery of the calcium ion to the inner-most layers of the cellular mitochondria and nucleus.

Other forms of calcium supplements, such as calcium carbonates, citrates, gluconates, lactates, malates and phosphates, do not have the ability to penetrate deep into the membranes.

Dr. Nieper found calcium orotate could help with:

  • IBS
  • Colitis
  • Hepatits
  • Bursitis
  • Diverticulitis
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • General bone reduction
  • Arthritis
  • Retinitis
  • Sinusitis
  • Psoriasis
  • Vaginitis
  • Gastritis
  • Laryngitis
  • Tendonitis
  • Elevated blood pressure
  • Discomfort due to bone irritation
  • Osteoporosis
  • Pancreatitis
  • Encephalitis
  • Shin splints

Calcium Orotate and Bone Strength

It has been well established that calcium supplements can work as preventative measures against bone loss and osteoporosis. While many forms of calcium supplement may aid in the prevention of this loss, Hans A. Nieper’s studies showed that calcium orotate gave the bones more usable calcium per milligram consumed.

Calcium Orotate and Weight Control

Calcium orotate was also shown to reduce food cravings. Nieper’s studies found that by supplementing the diets of chronic over eaters with calcium orotate, cravings were reduced significantly.

Mood Enhancement

Calcium orotate has been linked to mood-enhancement and overall cognitive enhancement.

Heart Protection

Calcium aids cardiac muscles and assists the nervous system in keeping optimal pressure levels in the arteries.

Aids in Premenstrual Symptoms

Adequate amounts of calcium stop the release of hormones related to premenstrual mood-related disorder, including anxiety, depression and irritability.
