Calcium supports our circulatory system as it helps blood vessels tighten and relax when they need to. This allows blood to travel easily through veins allowing your body to keep your blood warm and deliver oxygen to your muscles and organs.
Muscle contraction is known to be regulated by calcium. When your muscle moves, a motor neuron is queued on the muscle cell surface, activating calcium channels in the muscular system, and allowing calcium to flow into the muscle cell.
Calcium is a crucial element to how the cells in your brain, and other parts of your nervous system, communicate. High calcium concentrations let neurons know that it’s time to release the chemical message neurons used to communicate with each other.
The daily recommended serving of calcium for pregnant women is 1,000mg per day. A baby's bone health peaks during the third trimester and 250mg to 350mg of calcium is transferred from mother to baby daily. If you do not consume enough calcium in your diet during pregnancy, your body will take what your baby needs from your own calcium needs.
