Treatment for calcification of aortic valve
« on: 21/11/2003 15:59:28 »
I seem to remember reading somewhere that taking some sort of tablets reduces calcification. Is this true??
Thanks

Are you thinking of lecithin?  Lecithin enables fats (like cholesterol) to be dispersed in water and removed from the body.  The brain's protective sheaths are composed of lecithin and cell membranes are mainly lecithin.  It is also found in muscle and nerve cells.  Three (1200 mg) capsules daily is commonly recommended.

Magnesium, DMSA and/or EDTA.  Calcium and magnesium are antagonists.  Too much of one is due to too little of the other.
