The Secret Beauty Benefits Of Calcium


It’s a well-known fact that Calcium is good for your bones and teeth but that’s not all it can do. Although people might not realize it, Calcium has a lot of great beauty benefits that we just aren’t taking advantage of. It’s a simple way to add to your beauty regime without too much effort, but what exactly can it do for you?

Skin Growth

Calcium regulates a lot of the processes in your skin so it can go a long way to improving it. Levels of Calcium affect how quickly you shed skin and how well you can regenerate them afterwards. If you have low levels of Calcium then you won’t be able to replenish skin quickly enough. This means that your skin will start looking thin and cracked because the dead skin cells will hang on rather than falling off. Adding Calcium to your diet can massively improve your skin care routine.

Studies have also suggested that Calcium could reduce the risk of skin cancer. However, this research is only in its early stages so nothing can be confirmed until more studies have been done.

Moisture

Calcium also helps you to produce certain chemicals that naturally moisturize your skin. Low levels of Calcium will stop your skin from retaining its moisture and make it dry. Even if you moisturize yourself, the Calcium deficiency will stop it from being so effective so it’s important to make sure that you’re getting enough in your diet. In more extreme cases, a lack of Calcium can make skin conditions like eczema a lot worse. If you suffer from eczema or any other skin condition then make sure you get enough Calcium.

Weight Loss

Recent research has shown that Calcium has a very positive effect on the metabolism and can be a big help if you are trying to lose weight. Studies show that high levels of Calcium encourage your body to stop storing fat and start burning it instead. This means it can really help you if you’re trying to shed a few pounds.

PMS

Symptoms of PMS can be a lot worse than they already are if your level of Calcium is too low. The hormones that regulate Calcium can react negatively with estrogen if their levels are too high. By making sure that you have enough Calcium, you can regulate the levels of these hormones and reduce symptoms.

Where To Get It?

The best way to make sure that you get good levels of Calcium and reap the beauty benefits is to take supplements. AlgaeCal plant calcium is an all natural Calcium supplement that is made from plants. It can provide you with all of the Calcium that you need to help give your skin a healthy glow and regulate your weight. If you are going to start taking supplements, speak with your doctor first to make sure that it will fit into your diet.

You can try getting your Calcium from food sources if you like but there are negatives involved. The main food sources that are Calcium rich are dairy based. While they might give you good amounts of Calcium, they are also high in fat so if you are using Calcium as a way to promote weight loss, you’ll be counteracting the good effects by increasing your fat intake.
