Calcium

Among all the benefits of calcium, the most important ones are that it aids in maintaining bone health and dental health, as well as the prevention of colon cancer and the reduction of obesity.  We need calcium from birth all the way until we reach old age.  Recognizing calcium deficiency in the body is quite easy.  It occurs when your muscles ache and twitch, or you get sudden cramps and spasms.

Reports say that calcium deficiency conditions are continuously rising, particularly in women who are on low-calorie diets to get slim, and are therefore confronted with the threat or trouble of osteoporosis.

Thus, it is extremely important to consume enough calcium, vitamin D, magnesium, and K2 throughout your tender and adolescence years.

Calcium forms 2% of total body weight in a human adult.  Calcium is found in the human body and deposits in the bones and teeth in high volumes.  Traces of calcium are also present in the circulatory system, which prevent life threatening hemorrhages.
