Calcium is the most plentiful mineral found in the human body and is required for the healthy formation of bones and teeth, and for bodily functions such as muscle contractions and nerve function. Calcium plays a vital role in achieving peak bone mass in children and young adults and helps maintain bone density in adults.
The IOM recommends a daily intake of 1000-1200mg of calcium.
In addition to milk, many foods contain calcium but dairy products are the best source as they contain a form of calcium your body can easily absorb. Foods like yogurt, most cheeses, fortified oatmeal, orange juice, broccoli, salmon and almonds are all calcium-rich sources to incorporate into your diet.
Many diet and lifestyle factors can affect the body’s ability to intake and absorb calcium. These factors include lactose intolerance or resistance, high levels of protein and sodium, oxalate, which is found in spinach, berries and chocolate, alcohol and caffeine. A calcium supplement is an easy and effective way to ensure the body receives adequate amounts of calcium.
*Adequate calcium with Vitamin D as part of a healthful diet, along with physical activity, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis later in life.
