WHY CALCIUM IS SO IMPORTANT FOR US.
Calcium is one of the most important nutrient in our body. It has several important functions. Almost 99% calcium is stored in our bones and teeth where it supports their function. It is also very important for many other critical functions of our body.
Few of its functions are blood vessels contraction and expansion, muscle contraction, the secretion of hormones and enzymes and sending messages through the nervous system.
The amount of calcium in the body fluid and tissues is closely regulated so that these vital body processes function efficiently.
Medical professionals are agreed that the best source of nutrition is from foods rather than isolated elements and calcium is no exception. Calcium works much better to gather with all its co-factors and trace minerals.
Some of the foods that are best source of calcium.
1. Dark leafy greens
2. Fortified Soy products
5. Low fat milk and yogurt
6. Low fat cheese
