Calcium is an essential mineral constituent of our bones and teeth which give strength and structure to the body. Ninety-nine percent of all the calcium is found in the bones and teeth. The remaining one percent is in the blood. Calcium also plays important roles in maintaining strength of bones and teeth, nerve conduction, muscle contraction and blood clotting.
Increased demand for calcium is seen during the growing years as in case of children, pregnant females and lactating mothers.
Calcium requirement: In children: 400-600 mg/day, In adults: 500-1000 mg/day, In pregnant and lactating mothers: 1200-1500 mg/day, In elderly: 1000-1300 mg/day
Sources of calcium: Milk and Milk products, almonds, green vegetables, calcium fortified foods like orange juice, soy milk.
If calcium levels in the blood drop below normal, calcium will be taken from bone and put into the blood in order to maintain blood calcium levels. Therefore, it is important to consume enough calcium to maintain adequate blood and bone calcium levels.
Calcium deficiency can lead to weak bones and muscles, osteoporosis, increased tendency to fractures, muscle spasms, rickets in children and secondary vitamin D deficiency.
Many times inspite of taking enough calcium, it is not absorbed by the system. There is needed a supplement which corrects the absorption of calcium by the system.
