You often hear that it is important to get your recommended daily value of calcium, and you have probably heard that it is a good idea to drink a lot of milk or take a calcium supplement, but why?
According to Healthy Life Journal, calcium is essential for many body functions like muscle contraction and cell membrane formation. However, calcium is most famous for its role in bones and teeth. It is so important that approximately 99 percent of the body’s calcium is in the bones and teeth, explains the health news website.
The problem is that most Americans are highly deficient in calcium. This can lead to a variety of serious issues down the road including osteoporosis and blood clots.
Because it is hard to consume a sufficient amount of dairy products in one day to get the calcium your body needs, CalMax Original is a great all natural calcium source from Dr. Newton’s Naturals. Formulated with a blend of calcium, magnesium and vitamin C, this product is different from others on the market because not only is it preservative free, it will help reduce the stomach irritation that other calcium supplements cause.
