Were you looking for information about Calcium? Calsuim is a common misspelling of calcium.
Calcium is a dietary supplement used for a variety of different reasons. It is necessary for maintaining healthy bones and teeth, and may also have other important functions in the body. The body cannot function without adequate amounts of calcium in the blood, which is why it will weaken the bones if necessary to preserve the calcium levels in the blood in the case of a calcium deficiency. Potential side effects of calcium supplements include gas, belching, and constipation.
