1. when is the calcium level elevated?

In medicine, an elevated calcium level is also known as hypercalcemia. This refers to increased calcium levels over a longer period of time in the human organism. An excess of calcium can be caused by problems with the parathyroid glands or by diet. In most cases, the first symptoms are digestive problems, often followed by an increased feeling of thirst. This results in frequent urination. A severe calcium excess can become very dangerous if it is not treated. In order for increased excretion of calcium to occur, drinking plenty of fluids will help.

Possible causes of excess calcium:

  • Hyperfunction of the parathyroid glands
  • Taking too much calcium supplements over a long period of time
  • Excess of vitamin D3
  • Bone diseases

    2. the daily requirement of calcium

    The daily requirement of calcium depends on age and gender. The German Nutrition Society (DGE) recommends a daily calcium intake of approx. 900-1000 mg for adults. For infants, an amount of approx. 500 mg is sufficient. Pregnant and breastfeeding women, on the other hand, should consume about 1300 mg of calcium, as they have to provide for their offspring. However, the daily requirement can vary depending on body size and weight.

    3 The bioavailability of calcium

    The bioavailability of calcium depends on how well calcium can be absorbed and utilised by the human organism. For this, the body must be sufficiently supplied with vitamin D3, because vitamin D3 promotes calcium absorption. Acidic foods, on the other hand, can inhibit absorption. These include, for example, spinach, rhubarb and cereals. It is therefore best not to eat a one-sided diet, but a balanced and varied one.

    4. dietary supplements containing calcium

    If you want to increase a calcium level that is too low with a dietary supplement, you should definitely pay attention to the form of the active ingredient and its origin. Calcium capsules are particularly suitable for increasing calcium levels. They are very well tolerated and are utilized by the body to a high degree. The preparation should also not contain any chemical additives. If you buy a preparation from Germany, you can be sure that the product has also been produced safely and is of high quality.
