Looking for information on calcium and strong bones? This eMedTV presentation talks about how your body uses calcium to build healthy bones, what you can do to ensure you are getting enough of this important mineral, the role of vitamin D, and more.
Bone Is the Body's Storage Unit for Calcium
About 99 percent of the body's calcium supply is stored in bone and teeth. When we don't consume enough calcium, the body takes what it needs from our bones in order to maintain an appropriate level in the blood and the rest of the body. This can make our bones weaker. When we provide the body with enough calcium, the body can use it to rebuild old, weak bones, making our bones stronger.
