Person at risk of calcium deficiency

  • Elderlies who tend to have a lower production of digestive acids
  • Woman with repeated pregnancy and lengthy breast-feeding
  • Pregnant adolescents have high calcium needs
  • Breast-feeding women: they need an extra 550 mg of calcium daily (a nursing woman can lose up to 300 mg of calcium daily in breast milk)
  • People who drink soda pop. These drinks have added phosphoric acid (phosphate) which imbalance the ratio phosphorus/calcium.
