Hi there. Dr. Alan Christianson here and I want to tell you about the Calcium Paradox. There are so many really good questions we get about Calcium. Do we need it? How much? What types? What about the heart attacks? How does it absorb? All these relevant factors and they are very important.
I am super jazzed to give you all some clarity on this and make better sense out of it all. A lot of this was spawned by a study from the last year that shows that vitamins raise the risk of heart attacks. That’s a pretty shocking headline and rightfully so. The sad thing is that it is data that is not new. Vitamins can cause heart attacks. To be very specific, insoluble versions of calcium can cause heart attacks. So calcium does two very different things in the body.
