What Dr. Kal Sellers DC, MH says about Calcium Lactate:
Most people walking in to my office are parasympathetic dominant (link to discussion on another page). They have allergies, inflammation, irritable gut, depression, poor collagen production, awaken late at night instead of in the morning. These people should be careful to manage calcium to magnesium ratio. It is best to keep it to about 1 part magnesium to 8 parts calcium. This insures that the immune system has blood calcium available to
fight infection with and will help the nervous system balance relative to parasympathetic and sympathetic dominance.
Calcium bicarbonate in the blood is used to kill, rather than contain infection. It also helps improve cell functions and prevents magnesium from making tissue more irritable and sensitive. This is a point of much confusion because magnesium can be used in a pharmaceutical dose to relax nerves and smooth muscle. This leads people to feel it is helping them, but this is not a nutritional dose, but rather a manipulation of the body,
making things worse. Long term, this is the wrong choice.
One of the first things I do when I start to get sick is take 6-15 calcium lactate tablets from Standard Process and 2-3 Cataplex F. Together this makes the calcium bicarbonate stay available in the blood. Frequently, I will also take at least one Zypan with this because this helps insure that the calcium is well ionized in an acidi c stomach. This usually is a complete cure at this point.
For chronically ill people, 6-10 calcium tablets every day is essential until things are fully under control.
