How Our Body Lost Calcium?
There are 2 types of Calcium Cells in our bones, “OsteoBlast” & “Osteoclast”.
They look similar? Notice that one is with B, and the other with c.
Just remember: B for bank in and
c for cash out
Cell 1 – OsteoBlast
It’s job is to produce calcium & bank in calcium into our bones, to grow our bones, store calcium in the
bones, for future use.
OsteoBlast perform this function from our birth till age 25, then OsteoBlast retire,
due to Osteoclast stops.
Cell 2 – Osteoclast
It’s job is to cash out calcium from our bones,
1) to counter acidic food, like meat and milk and so on…
Osteoclast will seal off the bones, stop it from growing further at age 25. when
Osteoclast stops, OsteoBlast will also stop.
(Note: Osteoclast will retire early if a female gives birth, say at age 20, Osteoclast
will seal off the bones, then OsteoBlast will stop banking in calcium. That means her
bones will stop growing at age 20, instead of age 25.
The calcium which is stored in our bones can last till age 40+ to 50+ depending on
our diet. When calcium runs out, that’s when our bones feel weak & fragile, thus need
to be replenished.
***Important: Try to avoid “Calcium Carbonade”, “Glucosamine” and “Calcium Oxylate” especially for the elderly. Go to page “Calcium And Cancer” to read more.
