Calcium is an essential mineral that builds bones and helps maintain bone strength throughout your lifetime. About 99 percent of the calcium in our bodies is in our bones and teeth.
The rest of the calcium in your body plays key roles in conducting nerve impulses throughout the body, blood clotting, and muscle contraction.
If people aren’t getting enough calcium in their diet, the body takes calcium from the bones to ensure normal cell function, which can lead to weakened bones.
