12 Essential Vitamins & Minerals: Calcium
Calcium is one of the most vital minerals for optimal functioning of the entire body. It is essential that our bodies get plenty of Calcium in every life stage as it is a key building block for strong, healthy bones and teeth, especially during childhood and teenage years when our bodies are growing. We have packed a whopping 95mg of Calcium into each of our KidsLuv juices to support your little ones growing bones!
Calcium does the body good! Here are some of the awesome benefits of Calcium:
Super Duper Bones
Calcium provides structure to bones and teeth and gives our body the correct shape and posture. It helps to keep our bones sturdy through our adult lives and protects us against the development of diseases such as arthritis and osteoporosis later in life, which cause significant muscle weakness and bone loss making it difficult to do daily activities such as walking.
Key organs and bodily functions such as the parathyroid gland, which controls the amount of calcium in the bones, and metabolism need calcium to operate at their best. Low levels of calcium in the bloodstream can cause the body to become overweight leading to obesity in later life
Calcium helps to keep your kid's heart super healthy by assisting in muscle contractions and regulating muscle function. It also supports the development of blood vessels, helping to spread blood around the body which prevents blood clots and keeps every organ in good working order.
Calcium has a direct effect on the hormonal balance in your child’s body. Calcium can reduce symptoms such as mood swings, dizziness, premenstrual depression and mental health problems that are more likely to arise if hormones are out of balance
Calcium helps strengthen the jaw bone, which is the anchor of the teeth. If it becomes damaged, teeth can loosen and fall out. So you need lots of calcium for healthy gums and teeth and to prevent dental issues such as gum disease in later life.
Minerals are substances the body uses to build bones, make hormones, and regulate the heartbeat. At KidsLuv we know you need larger amounts of certain minerals including Calcium, so that’s why we’ve added 95mg into each serving of our juices infused water. Other sources of Calcium for your diet include dairy products such as milk and yogurt, broccoli, almonds, sardines, kefir and dark leafy green vegetables.
