Calcium is one of the most abundant minerals in the body. More than 98% of this mineral is stored in the bone structure and teeth. These structures act as reservoirs, storing or releasing calcium according to the body's needs. The intake of adequate amounts of calcium is very important during all life stages, especially during childhood and adolescence, as these are phase of growth and stronger metabolic activity. Some of the best calcium sources are: milk and derivatives (cheese, yoghurt, etc.), vegetables with dark green leaves (rocket salad, collard greens, bok choy), sesame seeds, sardines, salmon, etc.
