Most people know that calcium is essential for keeping your bones and teeth healthy, but what else is it good for? Additionally, calcium is a key mineral for keeping your muscles and cardiovascular system healthy.

Still, it is estimated that over 70% of us don't get enough calcium each day, and a calcium deficiency could lead to other problems that include muscle cramps, inability to sleep, or becoming increasingly stressed out.
