Not only is Calcium considered the most abundant mineral in the body, it is also essential for body’s overall nutrition and health. Calcium performs a number of basic functions in the body. It makes up approximately 2 percent of the body’s weight and contributes to many basic body functions, such as disease prevention and absorption of other nutrients.
Our bones store calcium in addition to providing support for our bodies. The calcium in the body in intended mainly (99%) to keep your bones and teeth. The rest of the calcium in the body plays key roles in:
- Cell signalling
- Blood clotting
- Muscle contraction
- Nerve function
- Activation of certain enzymes
- Transport of ions across the cellular membrane
- Sending and receiving neurotransmitters during communication with other cells
- Maintaining a regular heartbeat
As the age of an individual increases, the body absorbs less and less calcium from the diet, causing the body to take more calcium from the bones. Over time, this aging can cause or contribute to osteoporosis or osteopenia.
Another important role of calcium in the body is that it may decrease the risk for colorectal cancer and can even lower systolic blood pressure in individuals with high blood pressure. Aside from its role in decreasing the risk for osteoporosis by consuming adequate amounts of calcium, some researches also suggest that eating calcium-rich foods may decrease the risk for obesity.

Calcium can be obtained mainly from milk, yogurt, and cheese. However, dairy products are not the only dietary options to get enough calcium that the body needs. Generally, leafy greens, seafood, legumes, and fruit also contain calcium and many foods and drinks are now fortified with minerals, including calcium. Other alternative sources of calcium which do not involve dairy products include the following:
- White Beans
- Blackstrap Molasses
- Black-eyed Peas
- Sesame Seeds
- Turnip Greens
- Firm Tofu
- Instant Oatmeal
- Chinese cabbage
- Collard Greens
