Ningxia Wolfberry:
King of Nature's Calcium Rich Foods

An essential "macro" mineral, calcium is necessary for such things as blood clotting, muscle contraction, enzyme reactions, cellular communication and skin differentiation. It also gives bones and teeth their strength. Tooth enamel is 95% calcium. A deficincy of calcium may result in a lack of bone mineralization contributing to rickets in children, osteomalacia and osteoporosis. It is especially important during periods of growth, such as childhood, during pregnancy and when breast-feeding.

With more calcium than cottege cheese, the Ningxia wolfberry is an exceptional source of vegetarian calcium that can contribute to weight loss and reduced body fat (see study). But not all sources of calcium promote weight loss. Clinical trials have shown that boys and girls who drink the most milk tend to pack on the fat. The evidence suggests that calcium can indeed trigger weight loss—as long as the source is not dairy.

Balanced Berry
Balancing calcium and magnesium levels in the diet is critical because the two have opposite effects on cells: magnesium relaxes muscles while calcium contracts them. The same applies to blood vessels. Most nutritionists consider the ideal ratio for dietary calcium and magnesium to by 1:1, with equal parts of each. The Ningxia wolfberry is one of the few foods to have an almost perfectly balance magnesium and calcium ratio.
