CALCIUM: IDEAL FOR THE WELL-BEING OF THE BODY

Calcium is the major trace element found in large quantities in the body. About 99% of it is found in the bones, but it can also be found in cells such as muscle cells and blood.

It is involved in the solidity of bones (building and cell renewal). Calcium promotes their growth but it also has multiple benefits:

- Helps muscle contraction
- Activates certain enzymes
- Stimulates cell renewal

The well known Calcium deficiencies are mainly :

- Bone pain
- Brittle nails
- White hair
- Dry, scaly skin
- Appearance of skin problems such as eczema and psoriasis

1. CALCIUM: WHERE TO FIND IT IN OUR DIET?

The richest source of Calcium is dairy products; it is recommended to consume three servings per day to minimize deficiencies.

There are also fruits and vegetables to be consumed at least five times a day.

Calcium is also found in some mineral waters, including :

- Courmayeur: 576 mg/l
- Hépar : 549 mg/l
- Contrex: 486 mg/l

Deficiencies in trace elements are more and more frequent today: depletion of food in nutrients (- 4% since 1950), poor assimilation, stressful living conditions, hence the importance of complementary sources.

2. CALCIUM: HOW TO FILL A SKIN DEFICIENCY EFFECTIVELY?

As a reminder, Calcium is the major constituent in trace elements of our body, but also one of the main components of the skin.

In cosmetics, it strengthens the skin's natural barrier and protects it against external aggressions. It has a cell renewal action for the skin barrier.

Thanks to Calcium, the skin is less permeable to allergens and microbes in the air and water.

Gemology offers cutaneous oligotherapy to provide the skin with the resources it needs.
