Calcium Rich Foods for Bones, Insomnia, and Menopause Symptoms

Greetings to you,

There is a helpful chart below with some healthy foods that are rich in calcium.  In research studies, calcium has been shown to strengthen bones, prevent osteoporosis, relax the nerves and muscles, soothe insomnia, and remedy the symptoms of menopause and PMS.

Calcium is an effective insomnia remedy.  A calcium deficiency is associated with difficulty in falling asleep per a study called “The Nutritional Relationships of Magnesium”.  The author notes that the classical sign of magnesium deficiency is falling asleep rather easily, but awakening frequently throughout the night and finding oneself tired even after several hours of sleep.

Calcium and magnesium should be taken in a 2 to 1 ratio, with twice as much calcium taken as magnesium.  This is from a study in the Journal of Physiological Reviews.

The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, one of the leading chiropractic and nutritional journals, published a study called “Hair calcium and magnesium levels in patients with fibromyalgia – a case center study.” 

Fibromyalgia is a condition with chronic pain, multiple tender points in joints and muscles and sleep disturbances.  After their tests, the researchers found that calcium and magnesium supplements are indicated as an additional beneficial treatment of fibromyalgia.

Regarding calcium for good bone health, a recent study of 70,000 people from a report in the British Medical Journal confirmed that taking both calcium and vitamin D together on a daily basis significantly reduced the risk of bone fractures after menopause.

Enjoy the chart below and use it well for good health.

Does calcium help with menopause?

Calcium is proven for good bone health in menopause. A recent study of 70,000 people from a report in the British Medical Journal confirmed that taking both calcium and vitamin D together on a daily basis significantly reduced the risk of bone fractures after menopause.

How much calcium do you need during menopause?

Food sources of calcium are absorbed the best. Almonds, broccoli, yogurt, sardines and leafy greens are great. For those who don’t eat much of these foods, a supplement containing 1,000 milligrams of calcium, 500 milligrams of magnesium and 400 milligrams of vitamin D is a good place to start. It can be taken in divided doses.
