Were you looking for information about Calcium? Calzium is a common misspelling of calcium.
 
Although calcium can be obtained from foods (such as dairy products), it can also be obtained through supplementation. The body cannot function without adequate amounts of this mineral and will weaken the bones if necessary to preserve calcium levels in the blood in the case of a deficiency. Calcium is important for healthy bones and teeth, and may also be beneficial for treating high blood pressure, premenstrual syndrome (PMS) symptoms, and other conditions.
