Does Caffeine Deplete Calcium

Can drinking too much coffee deplete calcium and cause brittle bones?

I recently read an article by Dr. Ed Blonz that suggests not everyone who drinks coffee will deplete their body's calcium to the point of causing osteoporosis. Yet he does say that the caffeine in coffee can have negative effects especially in us women who are postmenopausal.

Here comes my rant again. Everything in moderation - nothing in excess. Enjoy a good, organic grown coffee once, twice or even three times a week. Don't however, start your day thinking "I can't get started without my coffee. Yes, you can. Try juicing in the mornings or even easier for those on the go, add whole food nutrients to start your morning off great.

I recently found a new line of products for a company diligent in their manufacturing and commitment to whole foods nutrition. The product is called NutraBurst. You can view all the ingredients on my personal site by clicking here.

Simply add one tablespoon to your morning juice or juicing and you're off and running. It offers a full spectrum of vitamins, herbs, amino acids, fruits and vegetables and whole food greens - for a very reasonable price!

Let's get back to coffee. How does caffeine deplete calcium? Caffeine acts as diuretic and diuretic properties can pull nutrients such as calcium and magnesium from the body. So, women who over 40 if you drink coffee you need to make sure you are getting enough calcium daily to offset the depletion of calcium and potential bone loss.

My favorite source of calcium supplements remains OsteoProCare. You can purchase a 30 day supply wholesale direct. Simply call 1-800-531-4877 and tell them I referred you. Dorothy Franzoi ID 13436901. Or order online by clicking here.
