Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body, 99 percent of which is found in the bones, the rest of the calcium is distributed among various tissues and cellular fluids, where it plays a vital role in many life processes.
Among the functions of calcium outside the bone system are participation in blood coagulation, neuromuscular impulse transmission, skeletal and cardiac muscle excitability, enzyme activation, and maintenance of cell membrane integrity and permeability. The processes of calcium metabolism in the body are related to parathyroid hormone (PTH), calcitonin and vitamin D.
