A concept RightWay Vitamins has coined into “stimulus variation.” While excesses can be handled for often long periods of time without obvious symptoms, there are often costs paid by other body systems that are often overlooked as being related. It is possible that excess calcium eventually participates in artery calcification with undesirable outcomes. This is not a factor of just calcium excesses, but rather synergistic levels with other nutrients. Current research is linking calcium and vitamin D to cardiovascular, cancers, and dementia as well as bone health. Look for vitamin K to especially be of influence here by regulating matrix GLA proteins in artery wall cells.
