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.
