Calcium is the most abundant mineral found in the body, making up the structure of bones and teeth, and plays a role in muscle function, blood clotting, nerves and hormones.
A deficiency of calcium can lead to reduced bone strength with the possibility of developing fragile bones, bone softening and increased fracture risk.
Bottom line–calcium is important for maintaining good bone health, especially as we age. Be sure to incorporate some of these foods into your diet on a daily basis to take care of your calcium needs!
