Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the human body, making up about 2 percent of total weight – typically 27 to 32 ounces in adult woman and 35 to 45 ounces in males. About 99 percent of this calcium is stored in the bones and teeth, and the remaining 1 percent circulates in the blood and is found in muscles, nerves, and other soft tissues.
The functions of calcium include the following:
Building bones and teeth: Calcium gives bones and teeth strength and hardness. Although bones appear to be rock hard and static, in reality, bone tissue changes constantly as calcium (and other minerals) move in and out – a process called remodeling.
Calcium is useful in preventing osteoporosis.
