A recent study published in the British Medical Journal reported catchy and misleading headlines indicating that calcium can increase the risk of heart disease. A closer examination reveals that the study is flawed and erroneous conclusions were drawn.
In the study the researchers used calcium by itself without Vitamin D, magnesium or other co-factors that help calcium get to the bone. When calcium can not properly get into the bone it has the potential to accumulate elsewhere in the body and cause problems such as heart problems, spurs or stones. The conclusion that we should draw from this is to make sure that calcium gets to where it should be – in the bones and teeth.
That is why we are careful to always recommend OsteoProtect by Vitalogic: http://bit.ly/b2wTMx OsteoProtect contains all of the co-factors and nutrients needed to help absorption and assimilation. OsteoProtect Plus also contains vitamin K-2 that further protects calcium from binding to the arterial walls and valves of the heart.
Here is the conversation with a listener on Duke and the Doctor referring to that study:
