Calcium for Sports & Fitness
Why Do Athletes Use It?*
Some athletes say that calcium helps prevent muscle cramps and makes their bones stronger.
What Do the Advocates Say?*
Calcium is especially important for athletes because they are more likely to lose calcium, as well as other minerals, through perspiration.
In addition to being important for strong bones, calcium is required for muscle contraction. Without enough calcium you may experience muscle cramps.
