Calcium

Calcium is the major mineral in the body. Called “the king of the minerals,” calcium is basic to good health. Most are aware of calcium’s role in bone density — keeping strong bones and strong teeth — and in preventing osteoporosis.

More recently, research has linked calcium deficiency to anxiety and susceptibility to stress, to aging and to degenerative diseases, such as allergies, heart disease, cancer and more.

Calcium is needed for every organ and cell to function. It is involved in most metabolic activities and is essential for all the other minerals and nutrients to be utilized. Good calcium is crucial for a strong heart, calm nerves, and restful sleep.

Calcium is necessary for the electrical charge of the heart beating. All muscles need it to move. DNA replication, a crucial part of body repair and youthfulness, depends on adequate calcium.

Calcium is an alkalizer. Perhaps the most important function of calcium is maintaining the proper pH of the body. The common diet and stress are both acidifying, leaving most people overly acid.

However, the calcium one consumes must be absorbable. To absorb calcium, it must be the right kind. Most calcium supplement products do not contain well-absorbed calcium.

Pearl and Eye Health

 

Cataracts are protein clumps that gather in the lens of the eye. They cause clouded vision and sometimes a change in color tint. The National Eye Institute informs that by age eighty, over half of all Americans will have cataracts. Currently, the most common way to deal with cataracts is surgery. On average this operation costs upwards of $3,000. While it is the most effective method of treatment, for many people, the cost of surgery makes it a difficult one. Both Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine use pearl to treat and prevent cataracts. This traditional wisdom was further confirmed by scientific studies. In one study published in “Ocean Medicine Journal”, Dr. Shinan Wang gave pearl powder eye drops to mice that had cataracts. He found that pearl eye drops could prevent mice from developing cataracts. In a human clinical trial, Dr. Shuxiu Wang let her 28 patients with cataracts to take pearl powder internally (1500 mg each time, three times a day) and apply it to their eyes in the form of eye cream externally. After one month, she found that 66% of her patients recovered from cataracts. Scientific research suggests that pearl signal proteins may help stimulate the regeneration of connective tissues in the eye. Pearl powder is also rich in zinc, calcium, and amino acids: all things the National Eye Institute recommends for maintaining healthy eyesight. Pearl Powder with Signal Proteins may well be an excellent way to help maintain one’s optical health. However, more scientific research still needs to be conducted for a pearl to obtain FDA approval for treating cataracts and other eye diseases.
