Why we do NOT take calcium supplements

Found on: https://www.wheatbellyblog.com/2019/04/10046/

In the Wheat Belly lifestyle, we do not take calcium supplements for a variety of reasons.

First, calcium supplementation does NOT increase bone density nor prevent fractures. In addition, several Wheat Belly strategies increase calcium absorption from the diet:

  • Removing the gliadin protein reduces urinary calcium loss, calciuria
  • Cultivating Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria bowel flora species increases intestinal absorption of calcium
  • Removal of grain phytates means that more calcium is available from diet
  • Vitamin D supplementation increases intestinal absorption of calcium

It all adds up to markedly improving your ability to absorb and retain calcium, making supplementation unnecessary.
