Why is IsaCalcium important to the body?
Calcium is one of the most abundant mineral in the body; it plays an important role in building stronger, denser bones early in life and keeping bones strong and healthy later in life. In addition, calcium allows blood to clot, nerves to send messages, muscles to contract and other bodily functions.* The majority of people do not get adequate calcium in their diets on a daily basis. The body also loses calcium every day through skin, nails, hair, sweat and waste. If our diet is lacking in calcium, our body will usurp the calcium in our bones. The human body cannot produce calcium on its own. Calcium is essential to maintaining total-body health in both men and women.
