Many times during the day we suffer from heartburn, sourness, flatulence and dyspepsia. These symptoms are usually accompanied by nausea, bloating and gas accumulation in the intestine.
This is due to quick meals (fast food), hot or cold foods, and to stress as well, because of the modern daily life.

Heartburn occurs with a burning sensation while sourness because of the return of the stomach contents into the esophagus and this heartburn can last several hours. It is the most common symptom of regression.
Antacids are preparations which treat the symptoms of heartburn, sourness and the feeling of bloating. The method and mechanism of their action is related to the regulation of PH, of the material located in the stomach, thereby relieving annoying symptoms.

So, taking antacids, gastric pH is adjusted, preventing its content to rise into the esophagus, causing us not to feel heartburn and sourness.The calcium contained in antacids heals the internal walls of stomach and the esophagus, providing relief and a balanced food digestion.

So, because of the correct adjustment of gastric pH, antacids give us a more correct and gradual digestion of stomach contents, with no uncomfortable symptoms of heartburn, bloating, sourness and exempts us from heaviness and nausea.
Antacids also play an important role in the proper regulation of gastric acid in the case of a poor diet, alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, spices consumption.

Finally, their use must be made when the symptoms mentioned above exist and not wastefully.


Calcium belongs to metals. It has a wide range of effects in the human body, which makes it an immediately necessary part of our diet. It is a major component of bones and teeth, and important for the smooth and proper functioning of the heart, as well.
It is also necessary for muscle contraction and plays a role as neurotransmitter, i.e. in the transmission of nerve impulses. Contributes to proper blood clotting, energy production, but also to the proper functioning of the immune system. 1-2% of our total weight corresponds to calcium. Foods such as dairy products, cabbage, lettuce, spinach, tuna, sardines and black bread are rich in calcium.

Studies have shown that a diet rich in calcium contributes to the proper regulation of blood pressure (Dash study in 549 subjects).
It also improves the symptoms of PMS.
Another important study (Nurse's Health Study in 86,000 women) showed that taking a calcium supplement at a dose> 400 mg per day significantly reduced the risk of stroke occurrence.

Calcium intake needs on a daily basis should be 800-1000mg. In childhood this quantity should be doubled, and during adolescence as well.
The calcium intake is also very important during pregnancy, lactation and over the age of 60 years. The daily dose in these categories of the population should be 1.600-2.000 mg.
The daily calcium needs can be met with an appropriate diet or dietary supplements (Biocid), when the diet for some reason is not sufficient.

In the end we left the big capital of calcium and osteoporosis. Calcium intake during childhood and adolescence is very important, a period that absorption is high.
The calcium intake in this ages significantly reduces the risk of osteoporosis, because changes positively a genetically determined "peak bone density", a situation in which someone arrives at the age of about 30 years.

So, based in all the above, about how important it is for our health the metal called calcium, it can be understood how important role it has in our daily diet.

PREGNANCY (Calcium carbonate and Antacids)

The pregnancy period for women is perhaps one of the happiest moments in their life. At the same time with this pleasant period some changes begin in their body (usually hormonal), with increased nutritional needs, both for themselves and for the fetus and its health.

The increased needs of pregnant women for calcium intake are given. Simply think that when the daily needs of the average calcium intake is about 800-1.000 mg, this number varies considerably for pregnant twice to that number (1.600-2.000 mg).
Calcium is therefore important not only for the pregnant her shelf, and for the fetus as well because it contributes significantly to the development of his bones. During pregnancy the fetus distracts from mother 25-30 mg of calcium daily, most of it during at the last 10 weeks of pregnancy. Because of this function, the additional needs of a pregnant women are increased by 260 mg of calcium per day.

But the need for calcium intake doesn't exist during pregnancy only. Equally important is the lactation period where the mother has increased needs for calcium, at least 1,000 mg daily. In this case the quality of breast milk is considerably better.
Also, by taking calcium and with the proper nutrition of pregnant women, both during pregnancy and after birth, stock of breast milk is much higher and more qualitative.

Finally, we must point out that every pregnant woman needs some nutrients that are necessary, such as folic acid, iodine, iron, vitamin D, omega 3 fatty acids and naturally calcium.
Pregnancy is a period of change for the woman, usually pleasant. But some of the functions of a pregnant woman can become deregulated. One of them is heartburn, acid indigestion. Heartburn is caused in the pregnant by a combination of physical and hormonal changes and disturbances.

During this period more progesterone is generated, which relaxes the muscles to allow the development of the embryo. At the same time relaxes the stomach valve as well, allowing stomach acids to follow the opposite path and get back into the esophagus. This causes heartburn and sourness, a very unpleasant situation of course for the pregnant.
Also during this period the uterus gets bigger. This increases the pressure to the stomach, aggravating the situation.
Antacids intake relieves the pregnant and exempts her from this unpleasant situation.
