What You Need to Know About Calcium
Calcium is important for the normal functioning of our bodies. We all know by now that we need a certain amount of calcium to build and maintain strong bones. Athletes especially need more calcium than less-active people. The more intense the exercise or sport the greater the body’s nutrient needs!
