Calcium is known to be an essential thing which maintains our body. It is known by science that calcium should be a proper intake in everyday life because calcium is not only important to make your bones stronger, but it is also important because it helps our muscles to function properly and our nerves to keep on working making them strong too. Calcium is thought to be taken more when you are young because a child develops bones and his bone structure is known to get bigger day by day but there are quite less people who actually tell you that calcium is more important for your old age too.
It is true that milk alone cannot satisfy the proper intake of calcium level even if a child is depended only upon milk. At the end of the day storage of calcium is fulfilled by calcium syrups.
