Where Is Calcium Found In The Body?
About 99% of the calcium in the body is in the bones and teeth and 1% is in the blood, muscles, and other soft tissues (such as the nerves, organs, etc.) This 1% plays a major role in our health.

Calcium is a very important mineral because it...

 
 
  • Combines with phosphorus to form bones and teeth, making them hard and resistant to breaks and decay. Getting enough calcium early in life helps bones remain strong later in life.
  • Helps muscles to contract normally. Deficiency can cause muscle spasms and cramps.
  • Helps blood to clot normally, when you get a cut or wound.
  • Is essential for nerve messages to be passed along the nervous system from the brain to other parts of the body and vice versa.
  • Helps regulate blood pressure. Low calcium intake has been associated with high blood pressure. People with high blood pressure should make sure they consume the recommended amount of calcium (1000 to 1500 mg per day).
  • Calcium may help prevent colon cancer. Calcium may reduce cancer risk in two ways: (a) by binding fat and bile acids in the large intestine, keeping them from causing harm and (b) by preventing the excessive growth of cells in the intestines, which could otherwise lead to cancer.
 
 

Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin that ...

 
 
    • Must be present for calcium to be absorbed and used. It is essential for calcium to be used for building bones and teeth and for other roles in the body.
    • May help prevent colon cancer by working with calcium to slow the growth of intestinal cells that could otherwise lead to cancer.
 
 

What Is Good Bone Health?

 
 
  • Throughout life, calcium continuously moves in and out of the bones. During childhood and the teen years, bones grow in size and density. Calcium goes into the bones faster than it comes out.
  • Between ages 20 and 30 years, the bones do not grow anymore in size, but they become more dense and hard if you are taking in enough calcium and Vitamin D.
  • After age 40, calcium begins to move out of the bones faster than it goes back in. It is very important to reach this age with the strongest, most dense bones possible to minimize the effects of calcium loss.
  • On the other hand, if too little calcium is stored in the bones before age 30, or calcium is drawn out too fast in later life, you will be at risk for getting a disease called osteoporosis.

What Is Osteoporosis?

 
 
  • Osteoporosis is a disease, occurring mostly in older adults, due to a loss of bone density and a break down of bone structure. The bones become porous, thin, and brittle.
  • As the bones in the spine lose calcium, they become more thin and soft and can no longer support the body, causing the person to stoop forward. Eventually, this becomes very serious because the lungs and organs may not have enough room to work properly.
  • Bones also break easily, especially those in the hips, legs, and arms. Falls may cause a bone to break, or a bone might give way causing the person to fall.
 
 

Risk Factors for Osteoporosis

 
 
  • Being female: 80% of people with osteoporosis are women. Females have smaller bones and tend to take in less calcium than males. On average, adult females consume only 450 - 550 mg of calcium per day, which is only half the recommended amount of 1,000 mg.
  • Family history of osteoporosis: There is a tendency for osteoporosis to run in families.
  • Being underweight or constantly dieting to lose weight: Heavier people tend to have more dense bones. This is one advantage of being overweight. People who constantly stay on a diet to lose weight often do not take in enough calcium.
  • Post-menopause: After menopause (i.e. menstrual periods have stopped) women have much lower levels of estrogen, which causes a loss of calcium from the bones.
  • Inadequate physical activity: Getting too little physical activity leads to a loss of calcium from the bones.
  • Low calcium/Vitamin D intakes.
  • Excessive intakes of sodium and protein while not taking in enough calcium, causes the kidneys to excrete more calcium from the body.
  • Smoking decreases calcium absorption.
  • Alcohol intake causes a loss of calcium from the body.
  • Long-term use of corticosteroids, anticonvulsants, and antacids, as well as excessive levels of thyroid hormones.
 
 

Meeting Your Calcium Needs

The National Research Council has set up recommendations for the amount of calcium people need at different ages. These are called Dietary Reference Intakes or DRIs.

DRIs for Calcium at Different Ages.

 
 

Age Group

Calcium Needs

 

1 - 8 years

500 - 800 mg

*1 cup (8 ounces) of Milk contains about 300 mg of Calcium. The above amounts of milk will not provide all the calcium needed, but there are other foods that can help meet calcium needs.
**HRT = Hormone Replacement Therapy

9 - 18 years

1300 mg

19 - 50 years

1000 mg

Women, 51+ (with **HRT) and Men, 51+

1200 mg

Women, 51+ (without **HRT)

1500 mg

Pregnant or Breastfeeding

1200 mg

 
 

Do you need to take a calcium supplement?

If you do not get enough calcium from food, because you don't like milk or have lactose intolerance, you may need to take a calcium supplement. Postmenopausal women, if not on hormone replacement, may need a calcium supplement. The recommended intake of calcium is 1500 mg per day, which is difficult to meet without a calcium supplement.
