Three Pounds!

Sunday, September 03, 2017

When you step on the emoticon in the mornings, you can assume that about three pounds of your body weight is CALCIUM, most of it packed into your bones and teeth.

FYI: Calcium is also present in extracellular fluid (the liquid around body cells), where it performs the following duties:

Regulating fluid balance by controlling the flow of water in and out of cells
Enabling cells to send messages back and forth from one to another
Keeping muscles moving smoothly and preventing cramping
