Nutrients are the main requirement for a healthy mind and body. And of all the nutrients that the body depends on, none is perhaps more important than calcium. Everyone knows that calcium is very necessary for strong teeth and bones, as almost 99% of the calcium in the body is stored in bones and teeth. Calcium also has various other functions, particularly in cell physiology, nerves and muscles. Therefore, deficiency in calcium can lead to various health-related problems other than weakening of the bones and decaying of the teeth.

Another thing that can be mentioned here is that too much of calcium is also detrimental for the body. Too much of calcium in the body, also known as hypercalcemia, can lead to less absorption of other minerals by impairing the functionality kidney. Thus, it is very necessary that calcium be taken in balance. Dairy products are the best source of calcium, but various other foods also contain significant amounts of this mineral. You should ensure that every day, your diet contain all those foods that are rich in calcium. Such food will keep the required level of calcium in the body.

To know what the foods that are rich in calcium are, read the table given below for more information.
