Experts recommend that 1,000 to 1,500 milligrams of calcium be consumed daily. Severe calcium deficiency can cause Rickets and muscle spasms. It can also cause weak and brittle bones and ultimately osteoporosis. Severe calcium deficiency is common in people with thyroid disease or who have parathyroid problems. Calcium is necessary for healthy bones and teeth, blood clotting, a healthy immune system and normal muscle and nerve activity. Calcium can reduce blood pressure and prevent colon cancer and osteoporosis.
