Weegy: Calcium supplements are taken by individuals who are unable to get enough calcium in their regular diet or who have a need for more calcium. [ They are used to prevent or treat several conditions that may cause hypocalcemia (not enough calcium in the blood). The body needs calcium to make strong bones. Calcium is also needed for the heart, muscles, and nervous system to work properly. The bones serve as a storage site for the body's calcium. They are continuously giving up calcium to the bloodstream and then replacing it as the body's need for calcium changes from day to day. When there is not enough calcium in the blood to be used by the heart and other organs, your body will take the needed calcium from the bones. When you eat foods rich in calcium, the calcium will be restored to the bones and the balance between your blood and bones will be maintained. ]

What are the functions and sources of minerals?
Weegy: Minerals and Their Functions and Sources The body needs many minerals; these are called essential minerals. Essential minerals are sometimes divided up into major minerals (macrominerals) and trace minerals (microminerals). [ These two groups of minerals are equally important, but trace minerals are needed in smaller amounts than major minerals. The amounts needed in the body are not an indication of their importance. A balanced diet usually provides all of the essential minerals. The two tables below list minerals, what they do in the body (their functions), and their sources in food.

What is the general effect of dehydration on the body?
Weegy: Answer: As little as one percent dehydration can have a significant impact both physically and mentally. Ten percent dehydration or above can result in death. Dehydration is a lack of water in the body. [ There are many effects of dehydration and these signs and symptoms will vary with each individual. The symptoms which occur also depend on the severity of the dehydration and will get progressively worse. Dehydration occurs when more water is leaving the body than is being taken in. Dehydration can be caused by a variety of factors including alcohol consumption, excessive urination, fever, and vomiting. Necessary body processes, which occur regularly throughout the day, such as sweating, and even the process of breathing release water from the body. It is essential that enough fluids are consumed to make up for those lost during the day, otherwise dehydration can set in. Stimulants such as caffeine and supplements which increase the normal metabolic rate speeds up the rate of urination, meaning that the amount of liquid leaving the body increases dramatically. Large scale or serious, widespread burns, wounds, and very damaged skin causes dehydration. Significant amounts of fluid escape through the affected areas. ] (More)

Name two different types of minerals and their functions.
Weegy: So far, over 2000 minerals have been found, and every year new ones are discovered. That's a lot of minerals! Don't worry! You don't need to know them all to be a rock hound. In fact, only a few dozen are common within the rocks of the Earth's crust. [ That means the rocks in your backyard probably have common minerals in them that you can identify. Minerals are divided into different groups based on their chemistry. Silicate minerals The most common mineral group on Earth is the silicate minerals, which all have the elements silica and oxygen as their main ingredients. Most silicate minerals form when molten rock cools, either at or near the Earth's surface or deep underground. Non-silicate minerals There are many different groups of other minerals that are known as non-silicate minerals. Some of these groups form when magma cools, while others form when water evaporates away leaving mineral crystals behind, or when other minerals decompose. ______________________ Mineral Classification One of the primary purposes of scientific research is to develop an understandable order to the complexities of nature. A first step in grasping a complex group of phenomena such as the Earth’s minerals is to develop a meaningful classification. By segregating minerals into groups, or classes, the mineralogist can more readily observe and describe particular similarities and differences within and between classes. The basis for the classification of the minerals is their chemistry. It has been recognized that minerals sharing similar anionic chemistry (the negatively charged part of the chemical formula), have more in common than those with similar anions. As such, the chemical classification of the minerals allows us to describe and discuss minerals that share many common properties and to understand the origin of property differences among various mineral groups. Silicates The two most abundant elements in the crust of the Earth are oxygen and ... (More)
