Calcium is a mineral that makes bones stay strong. The human body consistently remove small amounts of calcium from our bones and that has to be topped up with Calcium rich foods. Calcium is a necessity for all … right from a newborn to an aged person, as the body’s need for calcium actually increases as one gets older. This is so because bones reach maximum strength and density around age 30, but as we age, our body absorbs calcium from our diet at a lower rate. We need to eat foods high in calcium to make up for this lower absorption and to help maintain the bone strength gained in the former years.

The 2 keys to Calcium absorption is to make sure you are getting enough Vitamin D and healthy fat. If you are deficient in Vitamin D, then your body is not going to absorb calcium properly. Spent time out in the sun to get your Vitamin D and if not then take supplementation for it. There are many individuals who go on crash diets and eat low fat foods or avoid fat altogether. This will result in the hinderance of calcium absorption and lead to calcium deficiency in your body. Healthy fat examples are avocado, olive oil, almonds, walnuts, peanuts, paneer, coconut milk etc.

3 Things to ensure that your calcium levels are topped up.
1. Eat Calcium Rich Foods
2. Top up your Vitamin D
3. Ensure you take healthy Fat in your diet.

Calcium requirements for adult men above 50 is 1,000 mg per day and adult women above 50 is 1,200 mg per day. For a detailed RDA (recommended daily allowance) of Calcium, please see Daily Calcium Requirements
