Description

Calcium was discovered in the 17th Century by Humphry Davy, a man who also isolated Sodium, Barium, Magnesium, Strontium, Boron and Potassium. Calcium is the fifth most abundant metal within the Earth�s crust, contributing to 4.1% of the crust�s materials. The nutrient naturally occurs in several foods, including dairy foods, green leafy vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage and spinach, soya beans, tofu, fortified flour, and nuts. Fish containing bones, such as pilchards, are also high in Calcium. The average adult requires around 800mg of Calcium per day.

Benefits

Calcium has several functions although it is probably most known for its use in bone health, particularly as the mineral helps to reduce the loss of bone mineral in post-menopausal women. Research has found that low bone mineral density is a risk factor for osteoporotic bone fractures. Other health benefits of Calcium include its required presence during the blood clotting process in addition to normal energy metabolism, muscle function, neurotransmission and cell division. Lastly, the mineral benefits digestive enzymes which are required to process foods and enhance metabolism.
