Getting More Calcium

Getting More Calcium

Calcium makes up 99% of the calcium in the human body and is found in bones and teeth. It aids body movement and chewing. Not getting enough calcium can stunt growth. It can also cause headaches, anxiety, poor sleep, and muscle cramps. People with acid reflux may need extra calcium. Those with low blood sugar may also need more calcium. People who drink carbonated drinks may require extra calcium too. The best sources of calcium are natural foods like milk and bean products in a daily diet. The calcium in these foods can fully satisfy a person’s requirements.
