Calcium

Calcium is essential for many functions in the body, including: regulating the heartbeat conducting nerve impulsesstimulating hormone secretionsclotting blood building and maintaining healthy bones.Calcium is a mineral found in many foods. Getting enough of this nutrient is important because the human body cannot make it. Even after you are fully grown, adequate calcium intake is important because the body loses calcium every day through the skin, nails, hair, and sweat, as well as through urine and feces. This lost calcium must be replaced daily through the diet. Otherwise, the body takes calcium from the bones to perform other functions, which makes the bones weaker and more likely to break over time.For more information on Calcium read our blog...
