Hello, Jackie, good to hear from you, hope you’re doing well.
This seems to be almost the opposite of what the American Heart Association reported following a 22 year-long study of 3150 older middle-aged men aged 55 to 68 years old. The results are below:
Quote: “Men who were nondrinkers of milk experienced stroke at twice the rate of men who consumed 16 oz/d or more. While the rate of stroke decreased with increasing milk intake, the decline in stroke risk with increased consumption was modest for those who consumed under 16 oz/d. Intake of dietary calcium was also associated with a reduced risk of stroke , although its association was confounded with milk consumption. Calcium intake from nondairy sources was not related to stroke.”
Since the protocol for a Candida infestation calls for ample consumption of yogurt and kefir both of which contain calcium, I don’t see a problem in lowering one’s daily supplement intake.
Of course the study in question stated that the “heart attack risk was highest in people who consumed more than 1,100 mg of calcium daily.” If this is true then it appears that an amount lower than that would be safe or at least safer.
Thanks for posting the article, Jackie.
