In brief: Very
Calcium is very important- it helps build strong bones-- the body also needs calcium for muscles to move and for nerves to carry messages between the brain and every body part.
In addition, calcium is used to help blood vessels move blood throughout the body and to help release hormones and enzymes that affect almost every function in the human body.
