We all know that calcium is an essential trace element for our body. Most of the calcium is in the bones and teeth of a person - about 99%. The remaining 1% of calcium is contained in the blood, muscles and extracellular fluid, where it performs small, but very important tasks.
Calcium is necessary for:
- maintaining healthy bones (adequate calcium helps reduce the risk of fractures, osteoporosis and diabetes);
- contraction and relaxation of blood vessels;
- muscle contraction;
- transmission of nerve impulses;
- hormone secretion.
As we understood, it is very important to eat foods containing calcium daily. We offer a list of products that are rich in this beneficial trace element.
- Pumpkin and sesame seeds
- Red fish
