Calcium is an important mineral that is used in many ways in your body. Ionized calcium is the most active form and is also called free calcium.
Ionized calcium circulates freely in your blood without being attached to proteins. Too much of this calcium would be as a result of diseases such as tumors and Vitamin D Excess.
