But in reality, you’re probably murky on the details as to why it’s so important, and like many people, you may not be getting enough calcium in your diet.

Muscle contraction is initiated by calcium binding to signal the action.
- Calcium is a hard, silvery metallic element with an atomic number of 20 and an atomic weight of 40.078.
