Why is calcium important for our bodies?

Why exactly do we need calcium?

We need calcium mainly for bone health. You may have heard of the saying “drink milk for strong bones”; and it is true. Calcium also has other functions such as muscle contractions, blood clotting and assisting enzymes at work. Without calcium your body will have a fragile frame and inefficient system operations. Having enough calcium is important if you want to get fit, strong, lose weight.
