Calcium, the most plentiful mineral found in the human body, ideally comprises 1.5 to 2% of an adult's total body weight. Every cell and organ in the body depends on Calcium for proper functioning. Teeth and bones contain the majority of the body's Calcium (about 99%), where it is stored for future uses.
The body uses Calcium for:
- Blood clotting
- Nerve signal transmission (electrolyte)
- Acid/alkaline balancing of blood.
We, as a society -- especially women over the age of 45 -- are routinely told by doctors, the government and the media to supplement with 1000-1500 mgs of Calcium daily. Women are led to believe that they are particularly prone to Calcium deficiency. This is due to their presumed higher levels of estrogen which apparently restricts Calcium absorption. Unfortunately, getting enough Calcium won't guarantee a lifetime of healthy bones. Interestingly, no other mammal on the planet consumes dairy or supplements with Calcium after they are weaned.
As with most tissues, bones are constantly being reformed; broken down and rebuilt. Bone resorption is the action of the body when it accesses bone for Calcium and other mineral elements stored there. Bone absorption is the opposite, whereby minerals are deposited in bone for future use.
Skeletal strength depends on many minerals, especially Silica, for bone collagen maintenance, but also includes Phosphorus, Magnesium, Boron, and Strontium.
The concern is getting the correct balance of minerals for Calcium to be effective. Calcium management issues can be due to a lack of dietary Silica. In fact, in the first volume of "Silica: the Forgotten Nutrient," author Klaus Kaufmann challenges the sole use of Calcium supplementation by adults and shows its interdependency with Silica. When evaluating the amount of Calcium in Eidon’s supplement, measured in milligrams, it seems that it contains very little Calcium. Keep in mind that the amount of absorbable Calcium available in a traditional tablet or capsule is highly questionable. However, Eidon's ionic liquid Calcium is bioavailable and quickly absorbed.

Obtaining the needed minerals via the food we eat is a chronic problem today. This is primarily due to our deficient soils and over processing and over cooking of our foods. Drinking ultra-purified water can also strip our body of these essential minerals. It is important to be aware of the fact that reverse osmosis and distilled water will actually act in reverse of what nature intended our water to do. Instead of being a mineral delivery system, the minerals are taken out of the water and this puts additional stress on the body tissue to compensate for the lack of minerals in the water. The minerals must then be taken from our healthy reserves in bone and muscle, thus leaving our system deficient and vulnerable. Replacement is essential!
