Supplements for Calcium
Calcium’s role in maintaining bone mass and regulating bodily functions is well known. But your body needs help to make the most out of the calcium you feed it: additional nutrients must be included in the diet to help with absorption, processing and distribution of calcium throughout your system.
- Magnesium: is your ticket to successful calcium intake. Without it, your body may not be fully utilizing the calcium you are consuming. Fortunately, magnesium is in plentiful supply in the food chain.
- Foods: leafy greens, nuts, seeds, grains and legumes. Some cereals are enriched with magnesium.
- Vitamin D: another crucial role-player in the integrity of your bone health. For children, adequate vitamin D is requisite to strong bones and for adults it is requisite to maintain bone density and strength. Vitamin D deficiency is often a precursor to broken bones.
- Foods: mushroom, canned fish, fortified milk, egg yolk, cheese.
