Drink your milk…take your calcium supplement…we don’t get enough… we need more…get your calcium anyway you can, but get it! Everywhere you look calcium is being recommended, glorified or added to something.
Calcium has been the hot supplement being pushed recently because, yes, Americans are deficient in calcium.
There is more calcium in the body than any other mineral, and we are constantly in need to replenish the store we have in our bones, teeth, etc. If the body doesn’t get it or not enough, calcium will be drawn out of the bone supply, creating weakened bones and osteoporosis.
