If you were the mother in this picture, you probably would have answered the boy, “More calcium, stronger bones!”
You are somewhat right. But why is it essential?
Other than building bones and keeping them healthy, calcium allows our blood to clot, muscles to contract, and most importantly for our heart to beat. About 99 per cent of the calcium is found in our teeth and bones.
Every day, calcium is lost through our skin, nails, hair, urine, sweat and faeces. Human bodies are not able to produce their own calcium. Therefore, it is important to get calcium from the food we consume! When we stop getting the calcium our body needs, calcium is taken from our bones instead, which this will cause a deterioration in our bones. Ultimately, our bones will end up becoming weak and brittle!
