CALCIUM GOALS

According to most medical professionals, it is best (as stated in previous posts) to get your calcium from foods rather than supplements. So what is the bottom line? It is recommended you get 1,000 mg of calcium a day if you are under age 50 and 1,200 mg a day if you are over age 50. So be sure you are keeping plenty of calcium-rich foods in your diet!  The picture below shows a variety of calcium-rich foods and gives the amounts of calcium in each. Take time to check it out.
