WHY DO YOU NEED CALCIUM
Calcium is the mineral in your body that makes
up your bones and keeps them strong.
Ninety nine percent of calcium in your body is stored in your bones and teeth.
The remaining one percent is in your blood and soft tissues and is essential for healthy living.
Without this tiny one percent of calcium, your muscel contraction will be inhibited, your
blood clotting will also be inhibited and your nerves would'nt carry messages.
HOW TO GET CALCIUM CIRCULATING IN YOUR SYSTEM
There are only two ways you can get this essential
one percent; from the calcium
in your diet; the calcium in your bones.
It is mainly the calcium in your diet that spares or protects, the calcium in your bones.
In addition to their structural role, your bones are your emergency supply of calcium.
Your body actually tears down and builds bones all the time in order to make its
calcium available for your body's suntions. If you dont get enough calcium from the
food you eat, your body automatically takes the calcium you need from your bones.
If your body continues to tear down more bones than it replaces over a period of years
to get calcium ,your bones become weak and breaks easily.
This leads to crippling bone disease called "osteoporosis"
