Energy H2O naturally contains 24.4 mg/L of calcium. Calcium is an essential mineral needed by the body to build strong bones and to keep them strong throughout your life. Calcium is also needed for other purposes, such as muscle contraction.
Almost all calcium (99 percent) is stored in the bones. The remaining one percent circulates in the body. If the body does not get enough calcium from the food you consume to keep the right amount circulating in the blood, your body will take calcium from the bones.
Everybody needs calcium to build and keep strong bones and for normal body functioning. To reduce the risk of osteoporosis, you have to consume enough calcium during childhood and young adulthood, when bone mass is formed. As an adult, the calcium you eat helps you to keep the bone mass you developed when you were growing.
Energy H2O is an excellent source of calcium in addition to a balanced diet containing dark green leafy vegetables, such as kale and turnip greens. Although it is possible to consume too much calcium (more than 2,500 milligrams every day), studies have shown that most Americans do not consume the recommended amount of calcium they need each day.
