Calcium, being the most important mineral, tends to get neglected the most. Calcium is an essential mineral for healthy bones, gums and teeth. It strengthens the backbone and ensures the right shape to the body, as well as helping to alleviate the presence of back pain. It helps to keep the bones in their proper shape and prevents health problems such as arthritis and osteoporosis.
Research indicates that calcium can help in maintaining optimal body weight in both males and females. When there is deficiency of the mineral in diet, the body will tend to release parathyroid hormone, which stimulates the bones to release it into the blood stream. Parathyroid hormone in turn stimulates the production of fat and prevents its break down, which can subsequently make you obese.
