The truth is many of us aren’t eating enough calcium rich foods.

We all know calcium is important for your bones, and plays a role in calming the nervous system. What role does it play in the health of your skin?

Calcium is the most common mineral in the human body and in regards to skin. A deficiency can display itself in itching, dryness, premature wrinkling, and an increased tendency to develop skin cancers. Also, when there is a calcium deficiency, your body will take calcium from your bones and teeth because it is needed in other body processes.

Calcium is important in the function of cell turnover and regulation of the protective lipid barrier. So, skin that can shed and renew itself and maintain an appropriate lipid level is another of the calcium skin benefits. Anyone suffering from dry, itchy skin should consider increasing calcium during cold, dry winter months to benefit from the protective barrier calcium can produce in the upper epidermal tissues.

Although calcium is not an antioxidant by itself, it is important in regulating the production of an antioxidant called catalase. Catalase, along with other important antioxidants prevents the DNA damage that damages the texture of skin and minimizes damage to collagen and elastin.
One of the calcium skin benefits is the effect that sufficient calcium has on the central nervous system, minimizing the effects of stress on the body, and so on the skin. A stressed nervous system shows it's direct results on skin, so staying calm is better for your skin.

Foods that contain calcium include milk, cheese, almonds, sardines, yogurt or kefir, and broccoli. Try to avoid foods that can interrupt calcium absorption like high sodium foods, sugary snacks, sodas, caffeine, alcohol and too much red meat. 

Keep your skin and body healthy by making sure you have your calcium.
