Calcium Deficiency

Calcium deficiency occurs when there is a lack of calcium in the diet due to the body’s inability to metabolize Calcium. It can affect the overall health of the bones and teeth. Calcium plays a key role in blood coagulation, the transmission of nerve impulses, the contraction of muscles and the regulation of the heartbeat. When blood calcium levels are low, the body extracts calcium from the bones which can cause osteoporosis. Calcium deficiency can be treated with supplements and nutritional therapy
