Calcium is a major mineral in the body that is perhaps most well known for its role in the formation and maintenance of strong, healthy bones and tooth enamel. This makes it an important nutrient for growing children and adolescents to help establish adequate bone mass for maintaining strong bones throughout life.
Over many years, the risk of osteoporosis (a bone-thinning disease) increases if the diet does not provide adequate calcium. Osteoporosis generally strikes both men and women later in life, though it is a particular concern for post-menopausal women. Regular calcium supplementation along with weight-bearing exercises can help prevent bone resorption and osteoporosis to reduce the risk of fractures later in life.
