Health: Calcium

We all know that calcium is really important for us. Calcium is a mineral that is most frequently linked to strong bones and teeth, but it also plays a critical role in blood clotting, assisting with muscular contraction, and regulating heartbeats. Thus, it is very important for heart health.

However, more and more studies are showing increased risks for heart attack and stroke among men and women taking 1,000 to 1,200 mg of calcium per day from supplements. Thus, it is recommended to obtain our calcium from food rather than from supplements.

Vitamins sound like a great idea: One pill that can provide you everything you need to be healthy!

However, is this the truth?
If only they worked.
In most cases, multivitamins aren’t likely to pose any health risks. Still, it’s important to be cautious when you put anything in your body.

Supplements may interact with other medications you’re taking or pose risks if you have certain medical conditions, such as liver disease, or are going to have surgery. Thus, it may lead to a very big issue.
Decades of research on vitamins hasn’t found any justification for our multivitamin habit, and in some cases, vitamins have actually been associated with an increased risk of various cancers.

No matter what your goal is when taking supplements, one thing is certain: Nothing beats the nutrient power of a healthy diet. Supplements should never be used in place of whole food.

Eexcel News NR may increase cancer risk

Nicotinamide riboside (NR) is converted in the body to nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+), which is critical for cell metabolism. A disruption in NAD+ may result in diseases, such as metabolic diseases, aging, and other degenerative disorders. Taking NR supplements may raise and disrupt NAD+ levels. Researchers have found that high levels of NR may increase the risk of triple-negative breast cancer, and also cause the cancer to metastasize to the brain.

烟醯胺核糖(NR)会在体内被转化为对细胞代谢至关重要的烟醯胺腺嘌呤二核苷酸(NAD+)。若干扰了NAD+在体内的水平会导致疾病,例如:代谢性疾病、老化和其他退化性疾病。服用NR补充剂可能会提高和干扰NAD+的水平。研究人员发现,高量的NR会增加三阴性乳癌的风险,还会导致癌症转移至大脑。
