Welcome again, it’s been a long time, and today we would like to tell you the health benefits of calcium, and why it is vital to consume enough of it.
We will talk about the functions of calcium, its benefits, the daily recommended intake, and the very best food sources.
Calcium has multiple functions, the most commonly known is that it keeps your bone healthy, as well as your teeth, but as well, it deals with other things as well, like preventing blood clots and in your nervous system. Regarding your bones and teeth, it keeps them strong so if you happen to have an accident or a fall, they are less likely to break, fracture, or chip. Unfortunately, the older you are the weaker your body is, so you’re at a higher risk of doing serious damage if you don’t have sufficient calcium.
The daily recommended intake, of course, depends on your gender and age. But we can tell you that as an adult, you should aim for around 1000mg per day.
The list is pretty much endless, but if you’re a busy student and forget to eat because you’re revising too hard, then we recommend that you get some seeds and nuts, as they contain large amounts of calcium. Just eat a few of each every now and then, and you don’t have to worry as much about your calcium levels when you’re working hard on your homework or assignments.
