Calcium and vitamin D
Calcium, the most abundant mineral in the body, and vitamin D, a group of fat-soluble secosteroids crucial to calcium homeostasis, are essential for the mineralization of bone matrix. Extracellular calcium concentrations are controlled by parathyroid hormone, which stimulates the release of calcium from bones, and vitamin D, which promotes intestinal calcium absorption.
