The two most common forms of calcium in supplements are calcium carbonate and calcium citrate. Calcium performs a various basic functions in the body. The human body uses 99 percent of its calcium to keep bones and teeth strong, thereby supporting skeletal structure and function. The rest of the calcium in the body plays key roles in cell signalling, blood clotting, muscle contraction and nerve function. Cells use calcium to activate certain enzymes, transport ions across the cellular membrane, and send and receive neurotransmitters during communication with other cells. As an electrolyte, or a particle that helps conduct electricity in the body, calcium is also one of the key players in maintaining a regular heartbeat.
