Calcium Is Needed for Strong Bones

Posted on July 20

Calcium is essential for maintaining the necessary level of bone mass to support the structures of the body. The body is constantly using calcium for the heart, blood, muscles and nerves. Calcium is also lost through normal bodily processes such as waste and the shedding of hair, fingernails, sweat and skin.

If a patient’s diet does not include enough calcium to replace what is used, the body will take calcium away from the bones, which weakens them and makes them more likely to fracture. Surprisingly, it is estimated that 70% of people do not get enough calcium in their diet, which has different effects on different age and population groups.
