Calcium is the body’s most abundant mineral. Teeth and bones
contain 99% of the body's calcium. Adequate calcium intake is essential for the
formation and maintenance of healthy bones and teeth. The remaining 1% is found
in the blood and other bodily fluids where, among other things, it aids with
blood clotting, nerve transmission, and muscle operation.2
Calcium is stored in the bones, insufficient daily calcium
intake can cause the body’s serum calcium level to drop below optimal levels. When serum calcium levels drop, the body takes the calcium
its needs from the bones, causing the bones to weaken. Research indicates that
bone resorption responds immediately to increased calcium intake.3
