    ]There are 206 reasons we need to consume sufficient amounts of calcium during our lives. Do you know why?
    It is because calcium helps build and maintain each of the 206 bones in our bodies. Calcium also helps us develop strong teeth. And a small amount is needed for regulatory functions such as maintaining a normal heart beat.
