To further explain the connection of calcium and protein in bone density, the culprit is the influence of sulfur-containing proteins of animal resulting to loss of calcium. How is that so? Since our body cannot store extra protein, the amino acids convert into organic acids. Those acids that our body cannot neutralize can lead to several health effects such as acidosis. In order to regain the natural balance of the body, the process of buffering the influx of acid and borrowing the calcium phosphate from the bones can result for the kidneys to push calcium through the discharge of urine. Meaning, the body tends to lose essential calcium and increases the rate of fracture and bone loss. (…)
