Calcium supplements are taken by individuals who are unable to get enough calcium in their regular diet or who have a need for more calcium. They are used to prevent or treat several conditions that may cause hypocalcemia (not enough calcium in the blood). The body needs calcium to make strong bones.
Calcium is also needed for the heart, muscles and nervous system to work properly. The bones serve as a storage site for the body’s calcium. They are continuously giving up calcium to the bloodstream and then replacing it as the body’s need for calcium changes from day to day. When there is not enough calcium in the blood to be used by the heart and other organs, the body will take the needed calcium from the bones. Eating Calcium rich foods will restore calcium to the bones and the balance between the blood and bones will be maintained.
Pregnant women and nursing mothers may need more calcium than they normally get from eating calcium rich foods. Adult women may take calcium supplements to help prevent a bone disease called osteoporosis, which causes thin, porous, easily broken bones. This condition may occur after menopause.
