Calcium is an extremely important nutrient, starting from infancy through adolescence and adulthood, and should be not be overlooked. Calcium is integral in helping to support healthy bones, which is a process that undergoes most of the "heavy lifting" by the teen years. It is also responsible for supporting healthy teeth, muscle (including your heart), and nerves. It has also been shown to help prevent osteoporosis in women and some researchers have even begun exploring possible benefits as it pertains to supporting weight loss and PMS.
Increasing your intake of calcium alone isn't the answer. Calcium needs vitamin D and magnesium to be at its best. Without adequate levels of these two nutrients, your body won't be able to digest and absorb the calcium, thus rendering it far less effective and less useful in the body.
