Calcium

Calcium is a mineral that is necessary for life.  In addition to building bones and keeping them healthy, it enables our blood to clot, our muscles to contract, and our heart to beat.  About 99% of the calcium in our bodies is in our bones and teeth.

Most people get enough through their diet however it is possible to be deficient.

It is not produced naturally but can be found in dietary sources such as

  • Dairy products
  • Soya products (including beans, tofu and fortified milk)
  • Leafy green vegetables
  • Nuts
  • Items made using fortified flour

As dairy usually contains the highest concentration of calcium compared to other food groups, it’s not unusual for those who are vegan or lactose-free to not get enough.

Calcium is an essential mineral we need to maintain and keep our bodies healthy.

  • Promote bone health and growth (especially in children)
  • Keep your teeth healthy
  • Ensure your muscles function normally
  • Enable normal blood clotting
  • Contribute to the normal function of digestive enzymes

It is particularly important for children as it allows their bones to develop. Having a lack of calcium when you’re young could lead to stunted growth or weak bones which are more prone to breakages.

The recommended daily intake of calcium in the UK for adults is 700mg. Most people will get all they need through their meals; however, some may need to take a food supplement.
