Calcium is the most abundant mineral in our bodies. As much as 99% of that calcium is in our bones and teeth, but the remaining 1% is circulated in our blood. When we don’t consume enough calcium, the body taps into the calcium reserves in your bones.
Daily intake of calcium is important for everyone. But it’s especially important for women over 50 and men over 70. As we age, our bone density naturally decreases, so calcium plays an important role in supporting strong bones.†
Calcium is essential to bone health. And adequate calcium and vitamin D throughout life, as part of a well-balanced diet, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis. While many nutrients are important for supporting bone health, calcium takes the cake.
