The Importance of Calcium and Healthy Bones

Calcium is one of the most popular minerals for making healthy bones.

Calcium is found in abundant quantities in the human bones and teeth; Calcium forms about 2 percent of the total body weight and plays many different important roles in the body; 99% of the body’s calcium supply is stored in the bones and teeth where it supports their structure and function. One problem that every individual faces as they age is bone loss. Calcium ensures that bones are strong and healthy. The process of bone loss speeds up if the body has low amounts of Calcium. Calcium also plays an important role in bone mineral density; this protects against Osteoporosis which is a condition that results in loss of bone density. Calcium also plays a vital role in promoting gum and dental health. Many cavities form as a result of a lack of calcium in the teeth.

The recommended FDA guidelines for Calcium is 1000 mg’s (adult). Most adults can get the recommended 1000 mgs over the course of a day by eating the right foods. For example, oatmeal, calcium-fortified orange juice, yogurt, salmon and spinach. But, if you are like most Americans it is tough to know what foods are high in Calcium, and then eat the right foods.

This is where Balanced Greens Total Health comes in. All eleven of our products have some Calcium. Three of the products like Rose Hips, Barley, Wheat Grass and Alfalfa are very high in Calcium. You get approximately 27% of your daily recommended dosage of Calcium with each serving.
