Calcium
  • Calcium is the most abundent mineral in our body as it's the major constituent of bones and teeth.
  • Calcium is also required for muscle contraction and short term deficiency can cause muscle cramps, stiffness and poor mobility.
  • It's important to have a good calcium intake in the bone-building years which are as a baby and again from adolescence to about 30 years of age; especially important in females.  Insufficient calcium during these periods can lead to brittle-bone disease (osteoporosis) when you're older where your bones break very easily.  Post-menopausal women should also have a good calcium intake to help slow the rate of bone degeneration.
  • Although calcium toxicity is rare, symptoms may include fatigue, depression, muscle weakness, kidney stones, constipation and spondylitis (rigidity and inflammation of the spine).
  • Too much calcium can also limit iron absorption.
