Calcium is essential for strong bones and teeth. We all know this since we were 5 years old but you know Calcium does more than that? Calcium also helps in muscle function, maintaining a healthy heart rhythm, used in treatment of indigestion (Calcium is an ingredient in antacids), if you have high amounts of magnesium, potassium and phosphorus in your body, Calcium is used to control them, Calcium can also prevent specific cancers (needs more study though) and many more!

That's a-moo-zing to know!
If you don’t get enough calcium in your body, you might suffer from bone-related diseases and health problems due to weak bones. Children might not be able to reach their full growth potential if they lack calcium and adults may be at risk for osteoporosis due to low bone mass. Sad to say, a lot of Americans don’t get the recommended daily allowance (RDA) for calcium. Children, adolescent girls and adults age 50 and older are the most common victims. 

The amount of calcium that you need depends on your age and sex.

Men (RDA)
19-50 years old: 1,000mg and a daily limit of 2,500mg
51-70 years old: 1,000mg and a daily limit of 2,000mg
71 years old an older: 1,200mg and a daily limit of 2,000mg

Women (RDA)
19 – 50 years old: 1,200mg and a daily limit of 2,500mg
51 years old and older: 1,200mg and a daily limit of 2,000mg

Going above the daily limit might give you health problems related to excessive calcium like Hypercalcemia. Women need more calcium than men because for some reason, they are more prone to osteoporosis or the thinning of bones than men.

Sadly, our bodies can’t produce calcium so you must acquire it through the following food:
Dairy like milk, cheese, yogurt, butter, sour cream, cottage cheese, cream, buttermilk, margarine, etc.

Green and leafy vegetables like broccoli, bok choy, okra, collards, turnip greens, leeks, artichokes, kale, swiss chard, fennel, celery, spinach, dandelion greens, asparagus, cabbage, brussels sprouts, etc.

Fish with edible bones like sardines and canned salmon, and other calcium fortified foods but take note of the other stuff that goes with it. Your orange juice might be calcium-fortified but it’s not worth it if the sugar level is way too high.

Incorporate calcium in your meals! Try this cauliflower rice recipe or try this fruit and herb infused water recipe using mineral water.
