Why you should take calcium to treat nerve pain

Volume 6    |    Issue 42

Back in March, I told you about a novel new way to help your nerves heal after they’re damaged. It’s a product called Advanced Nerve Support. Well, my readers don’t miss a beat. We received a great question about this product from Sally B. on Facebook.

Sally asked: “What is the purpose of calcium in this product?”

Surprisingly, the main reason is because it acts as a filler and bonding agent. This form of calcium (tricalcium phosphate) is widely used in nutritional supplements to help them cake together. Without it, you’d just have a powder.

While tricalcium phosphate isn’t an active ingredient in this formula, it does serve a very important role. Every supplement tablet you take needs specific excipients to make a good functional supplement. Tricalcium phosphate not only binds the ingredients together, it also helps dry and stabilize a key active ingredient in the formula – acetyl-L-carnitine (which I’ll discuss more in a future issue).

Most people know that calcium helps build bone – and tricalcium phosphate is a bioavailable source of this mineral. It dissolves quickly in stomach acid. So it doesn’t bind the ingredients too tightly that you can’t digest them or readily absorb calcium. This makes it a good functional ingredient in the tablets.

Can You Restore Your Hearing by Taking Nutrients?

Most doctors don't think nutrition has anything to do with hearing loss. But several new studies show just how important nutrition is to your ears - and how some people are actually reversing their hearing loss.

What most people don’t know is that calcium is vital for nerve function. We need calcium for muscles to move and for nerves to carry messages between the brain and every part of the body. It also helps blood vessels move blood throughout the body. And it helps release hormones and enzymes that affect almost every function in your body. Combined with the phosphorous, it provides additional strength and structure to the bones.

The calcium balance in your body is important to pay attention to – you don’t want to take too much. But calcium is vital for healthy nerves, helping transport impulses from nerve cell to nerve cell so they can reach from one part of the body to your brain.

While the tricalcium phosphate isn’t an active ingredient in Advanced Nerve Support, it’s a highly effective vehicle for helping you get all the other great nutrients in the product. Most excipients are inert, meaning they offer very little nutritional value. But the great thing about tricalcium phosphate is that it’s completely safe and if your body does get any assistance from it, it’s just a bonus in my book. In this formula, it’s the perfect filler.
