So I thought to research on sources of calcium. In this post, I will explain all the essential sources of calcium that are good for health.

Calcium is the most abundant mineral in our body. Almost 99 % of the total structure of bones and teeth comprise of calcium. Calcium is essential for our body in both nutrition and health. It is used for different functions of the body. It is used for the prevention of diseases and absorbing other essential nutrients. Doctors recommend taking 1000mg of calcium daily.

Bone calcium is also used as a storage area to release calcium into the bloodstream when it is needed. Eating calcium-rich foods makes it possible for our body to achieve optimal health. Calcium carries a small electrical charge, which is why it can conduct electricity in our body. Calcium is also one of the key players in maintaining a regular heartbeat. A healthy life can never be imagined without having proper calcium daily. Calcium is hence vital for our body.
