Calcium absorption

You probably already know that Calcium can not only be found in milk but even more so in green vegetables (which by the way has a 50-60% better absorption rate than milk products). The nutrient is essentially a building block of bone, and it helps maintain bone strength throughout your lifetime.

Imagine your bones act as a „bank of calcium“ from which your body can make „withdrawals“ as needed to keep the right amount of calcium in the blood. When facing challenges of metabolism, stress or nutritional variations (drinking a lot of coffee or alcohol) - your body makes a withdrawal and takes Calcium out of the bank (your bones) to fill up the empty spots. As Calcium is being taken away, your bone density will lower.

The so called PTH („Parathyroid hormone“) is the key that unlocks the bank vault to remove the calcium.

But the process also works the other way round. If you absorb more calcium into your blood stream, the key will unlock the bank and store some of it in the account. Meaning - your bone density will increase.

Bone density healthy bones calcium vitamin dThe question is, how do you influence the absorption of calcium into your blood stream?

One of the answers is: Vitamin D3

The presence of Vitamin D3 can increase the Calcium absorption by as much as two to four times.

So even if you’re taking in enough calcium, it could be going to waste if you’re deficient in vitamin D.

The body can either make its own vitamin D using a process that requires sunlight or obtain vitamin D directly from the diet (think Salmon, Egg Yolks, Sardines, Mushrooms).

The ‚Super Green Ninja Powder‘ contains both, Calcium and Vitamin D3. So you don’t have to throw Salmon into your blender to get all your essential bone health building blocks, but simply enjoy a daily health boost of greens.
