Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body and is found in bones and teeth. Calcium is needed for more than just bones and teeth though. Calcium is important for muscle contraction, blood vessel contraction and expansion, and the secretion of hormones and enzymes in sending messages through the nervous system.
