Herbal CA is a natural way to add to the calcium levels in the diet.
The herbs help the absorption of calcium and help it to stay in the body. It is
also a good source of plant silica.
Calcium levels are easily disturbed by the foods and drink that we consume.
Fizzy drinks are well known to destroy calcium and should really only be
consumed occasionally, if at all. In the earlier days cooks at home used to add
baking soda (bi carbonate of soda) to the greens to help keep the colour of the
cooked vegetables. They were unaware, it seems, of the effect this ingredient has
on calcium levels and other nutritional levels. This bicarbonate of soda is the fizz ingredient in fizzy drinks.
It is also said that consumption of dairy products and too much red meat can
also disturb the levels of calcium. The calcium in dairy products is harder to
utilise and can cause an imbalance.
