Calcium and Sports Nutrition
Calcium is the most represented mineral in the human body and the 2nd most import mineral in sports nutrition. (right after magnesium). It is the mayor building block of our bones and also does its part every time you contract a muscle. Calcium to phosphorus ratio should be 1:1, but most amateurs only care about their protein intake and because most protein rich foods contain more phosphorus than calcium they don't get enough calcium. Keep in mind that overdosing one mineral can lead to a functional imbalance of another mineral. Find more sports nutrition related topics at nutrition main.
