Calcium is one of the essential minerals needed by the body for several important functions like the regulation of muscles especially the heart, for the clotting of blood, release of energy and transmission of nerve impulses. A large percentage of calcium is in the skeleton. Along with phosphorous, it is largely responsible for the hardness of bones and teeth. 99 percent of the body’s calcium is found in these two tissues and the remaining 1 percent is found in the blood, muscle and fluids between the cells. The skeleton is a tissue made up of minerals and proteins. The greatest requirement of calcium is during childhood, adolescence, pregnancy and lactation. Healthmeup expert, Mickey Mehta, India’s leading Holistic Health guru talks about calcium and its benefits for bone health.
