If you have strong bones and teeth, you can thank calcium for that. Calcium is an essential mineral that your body needs not only for bone and tooth health, but your body also uses calcium to stabilize blood pressure and regulate the heartbeat. Most calcium is stored in the bones and as the bones begin to thin with age, calcium is lost. This is normal and usually replaced daily with the foods we eat, but how can you tell if you’re not getting enough calcium?
To decrease your risk of developing osteoporosis or calcium deficiency disease (hypocalcemia), take note of these calcium deficiency symptoms.
