Do you know the amount of calcium in the human body? Calcium accounts for 2% of the total weight of the human body and is a trace element in the human body. What does it do for the human body? The effect of calcium on the human body is mainly divided into two aspects, namely direct action and indirect action. The direct effect of calcium is to regulate many physiological and biochemical processes in the body; the indirect effect of calcium is relatively wide, such as calcium can make the bones thick, make the muscles developed, and make people full of energy. Maintain moderate acidity and alkalinity, water and electrolyte balance.
The physiological function of calcium is as follows.
1,Calcium is an important substance that maintains the metabolism of brain neurons. Adequate calcium can inhibit the abnormal excitation of the cranial nerves and keep people calm.
2, The body’s calcium deficiency will stimulate the production of peptide substances that cause high blood pressure, the daily intake of less than 300 mg compared with the normal intake, the incidence of high blood pressure is 2 to 3 times higher.
3, Calcium can participate in the physiological activities of the optic nerve, but also make the eyeball full of elasticity, the lack of calcium intake is affected by the contraction function of the eye muscle, the eyes are prone to tension, fatigue, vision loss.
4,Calcium activates immune cells in lymph, improves its phagocytic function, promotes the synthesis of immunoglobulins in the blood, enhances human immunity, and inhibits the reproduction of harmful bacteria.
5, Calcium can activate the body’s lipase, amylase and other digestive enzymes, improve their ability to digest protein, fat and carbohydrates.
6,Calcium is an important element involved in hepatocyte repair and is important for protecting the detoxification function of liver cells.
7, Endocrine secretion hormone depends on calcium to transmit information, calcium intake is insufficient endocrine disorders, not only affect the skin color, induce insomnia and more dreams, may also lead to sexual dysfunction.
8,Calcium and skin elasticity: Calcium is very important to maintain the elasticity of skin cell membranes. When the concentration of calcium ions in the body fluid decreases, the permeability of the cell membrane increases, and the permeability of the skin and mucous membrane to water increases, resulting in a decrease in skin elasticity and even skin itching and edema.
9, Calcium is involved in muscle fiber movement, lack of calcium, muscle strength is insufficient, not only easy to pull when exercising, but also often feel sore after exercise. Calcium also maintains skin cell membrane elasticity.
You can’t imagine how there would be no calcium in the human body?
