Calcium

Calcium and Magnesium are important minerals that the body uses to function properly.

Here is a list of it’s beneficial functions:

  • It excites nerves and is needed for muscle contraction, including normal heartbeat.
  • Calcium makes bone stiff and hard.  Without it your bones will become weak.
  • It is a major component of teeth.  Without it, your teeth will be more prone to cavities and may fall out.
  • It plays an essential role in brain function. (Lord knows we all need more of that… I sure do!)
  • It is part of the blood clotting mechanism without which you would bleed to death.
  • Calcium has also been shown to help with osteoporosis, cramps, herpes, canker sores, sleeplessness, infections, fevers…just a short list!

So, Calcium is an important nutrient essential for maintaining total body health. It does a body good! In the next couple of days I’ll give you some data on Magnesium and why Calcium intake must be balanced with Magnesium.
