What is calcium and why is it important?
Calcium is a mineral that the body needs for numerous functions, including the building and maintaining of bones and teeth, blood clotting, the transmission of nerve impulses, and the regulation of the heart’s rhythm. About 99% of the calcium in the body is stored in the bones and teeth, and it is what makes them strong and hard. Most of these calcium is laid down during childhood and teenage years. Your child's bones need high amounts of calcium as it is a major component to build stronger and healthier bones.
Why should my child take calcium supplements?
The bone density achieved in childhood and adolescence years is one of the key determinants to lifelong bone health. The denser your child’s bones are at the time of peak bone mass, the greater they are able to protect themselves against fragile bone disease, osteoporosis and fractures later in life. Therefore, it is important to build strong and healthy bones by adopting healthy nutritional and lifestyle habits from young.
What are some symptoms of calcium deficiency?
You may notice symptoms such as bone fractures, brittle teeth and nails, muscle cramps, fatigue or numbness in your child. Some children may face calcium deficiency since birth if their mothers had low calcium levels during pregnancy.
