Calcium is a very important mineral in human metabolism. It is not only essential for bone-building and growth in height during puberty; it is also a vital mineral for many other bodily functions. About 99% of calcium is stored in bones and teeth, where it supports their structure and contributes to their hardness. In addition to building bones, calcium also helps the heart, muscles and nerves system work properly. Calcium Deficiency can lead to osteoporosis. In a healthy growing adult, peak bone mass is reached between 30-35 years of age. It is the stage at which the bone is strongest. After that, bone mass will naturally decline with age. Thereafter, bone mass decreases most rapidly at the onset of menopause.
Studies have shown that maximizing calcium intake during early adulthood and at age 30-35 can greatly affect one’s peak bone mass. Building bone mass when you are young is a form of good investment as it may help to slow down rate of bone loss in later life.However, this does not mean calcium is not needed when reaching middle age (30-35 years old). This is because bones are broken down and rebuilt throughout your life. It is therefore important to have a fair intake of calcium your entire life.
If your intake of calcium is inadequate, be sure to start ‘storing’ calcium now for future use.
