Why is calcium so important to my health?
Calcium is a mineral found in your body. Most of the calcium is found in your bones and your teeth. You need plenty of calcium to keep them healthy and strong throughout your life. There is also calcium in your blood, in your muscles and in the fluid between your cells. Your body uses calcium to help blood vessels and muscles expand and contract, and to regulate the pH level of your blood. It also helps produce hormones and enzymes as well as move impulses through your nervous system.
