Calcium And High Blood Pressure Regulation

Find out how the most abundant mineral in the body, calcium and high blood pressure regulation is possible. A diet providing enough calcium often reduces blood pressure in both healthy people and those with hypertension. This can cut health-care cost and save many human lives in the process. Adequate blood levels of calcium creates a normal sodium-potassium balance that is instrumental in both blood pressure regulation and insulin utilization.


You should know that the body's calcium is stored in the bones and teeth where it plays two important roles. 


These major minerals, calcium, chloride, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium and sulfate help to maintain the fluid and electrolyte balances in the body.  Each one has their own special duties in the treatment of high blood pressure.


Calcium is an integral part of bone structure, and the bone calcium serves as a bank that releases calcium to the body fluids when there is a drop in blood calcium concentration.


You may think once the bone is formed it stays forever as a rock.  No not so.  The minerals of the bones are in a constant flux with formation and dissolution taking place constantly - day and night.

  • Essential in its role of muscle contraction and therefore for your heart beat.


  • Allows secretion of hormones, digestive enzymes and neurotransmitters.


  • Activates cellular enzymes that regulate many processes.

Already you can see its importance and how linked they are in the body.  So because of how important it is blood calcium is tightly controlled.
