Were you looking for information about Calcium? Kalcium is a common misspelling of calcium.
Calcium, an important mineral, is primarily stored in the bones and teeth. It is used to support their structure and to prevent them from breaking down. The body cannot function without adequate amounts of this mineral in the blood; the body will weaken the bones if necessary to preserve blood calcium levels in the case of a deficiency. Oftentimes, calcium supplements are claimed to be beneficial for treating high blood pressure and premenstrual syndrome (PMS) symptoms.
