The importance of getting enough calcium in your diet

Calcium is essential for building and maintaining bone. About 99 percent of the calcium in our bodies is in our bones and teeth.

Calcium combines with other minerals to form hard crystals that give your bones strength and structure. In addition to building bones and keeping them healthy, calcium assists in muscle contraction, transmission of nervous system messages, heart rate regulation, blood clotting, enzyme activity and production and activity of hormones involved in digestion, energy and fat metabolism.
