Calcium is one of the most plentiful minerals in the body. It is an indispensable nutrient required for many physiological functions in the body like blood vessel expansion and contraction, muscle contraction,secretion of hormones and enzymes, and transmitting signals throughout the nervous system.
Calcium also helps in maintaining normal blood pressure level. It also helps clotting of blood in case of injuries.
Perhaps the most significant and ostensible function of calcium is formation, growth and mainrenance of bones and teeth alongwith other nutrients like phosphorus and vitamin D. Hence 99% of body’s calcium is stored in bones.
