TRUTH ABOUT CALCIUM
Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body. It makes up much of the structure of bones and teeth and allows normal bodily movement by keeping tissue rigid, strong, and flexible.
That’s not all. Calcium in the circulatory system, extracellular fluid, muscle, and other tissues is critical for mediating contraction and vasodilatation of blood vessels, muscle contraction, blood clotting, nerve transmission, intracellular signalling, cell membrane permeability, secretion of hormones like insulin, and stabilizing a number of proteins, including enzymes, optimizing their activities. Though India as a nation is the largest producer of milk, there is profound shortage of calcium intake in the Indian diet with all negative consequences on health. There is a widespread dietary calcium and vitamin D deficiency in India.
