Lactose intolerant? Vegan? Don’t worry. You can still meet your daily calcium requirements.
From fortified products to naturally occurring sources of calcium, there is a bounty of foods for those who can’t consume dairy.
Calcium, necessary for strong bones and teeth, also maintains healthy blood vessels, regulates blood pressure and prevents insulin resistance (a potential cause of Type 2 Diabetes).
Are you consuming enough calcium to keep your body healthy and strong?
Here are a few suggested foods to make sure you take in enough calcium:
1. White beans
2. Canned salmon
4. Dried figs
5. Bok choy (chinese cabbage)
6. Blackstrap molasses
8. Black-eyed Peas (no, not the musical artist)
