Calcium is the most common mineral found in the body and is an essential key mineral supporting overall bodily health and functionalities. Particle Dynamics supports emerging calcium product needs that helps manage calcium deficiencies. According to Medical News Today (Newman, 2020), calcium plays an integral role in the human body as calcium helps:

 

  • Build bone health by boosting bone density
  • Support strong teeth
  • Regulate muscle contractions: calcium works synergistically with the proteins in the muscle to aid in muscular contractions and relaxation
  • Maintain cardiovascular health: calcium helps maintain the heart muscle functionality
  • Lowering blood pressure - linked to high calcium consumption
  • Improve cholesterol levels
  • Lower the risk in colorectal adenomas
  • Manage acid reflux
  • Prevent calcium deficiency health problems
