The Importance of Dietary Calcium and Magnesium

Calcium is a mineral that is well known for its role in maintaining healthy and strong bones. About 99% of the calcium in our body is found in our teeth and bones. 

An acute deficit in calcium can actually be quite challenging to detect since a healthy level of blood calcium is often within a narrow concentration. Low blood calcium is also only generally found when a person is suffering from chronic kidney disease, alcoholism, deficiencies in vitamin D and magnesium and parathyroid diseases. 

To learn more about the roles and importance of calcium and magnesium in your diet, read our registered dietitian, Susan Macfarlane, latest article here.
