Dr. Chad Dale from the Cleveland Clinic in the United States explained that the importance of calcium is not only limited to bone strength, but rather it is considered an important element for many vital processes in the body.
Calcium deficiency in the body can be identified by the appearance of many symptoms, including:
Dr. Chad Yell confirmed that the symptoms of calcium deficiency do not begin immediately after the body’s supply is insufficient, but they appear over time in the body’s systems, which can develop into an increased risk of osteoporosis and low bone mass.
An apparent lack of calcium is usually associated with a constant feeling of fatigue, because it is a nutrient for cells.
Calcium contributes to muscle strength, and plays a very important role in tightening and relaxing muscles. Calcium deficiency causes pain, stiffness, and spasms in the muscles.
Calcium deficiency can also lead to an irregular heartbeat, affect the nerves, and a feeling of tingling or numbness in the extremities. A recent study also showed that calcium deficiency is related to the risk of depression.
Doctors always advise following a balanced diet that contains sufficient calcium for the body, which is found in dairy products, cabbage, broccoli, leafy vegetables, sardines, almonds, sesame, and chia seeds.
