How To Eat More Calcium

Dairy products are not the only source of calcium and, according to some experts, possibly not even the best source

These are things you'll need:

Almonds
Beans
Cheeses
Fish
Milk
Tofu
Yogurt
leafy, green vegetables

Step 1:Eat vegetables such as mustard greens, bok choy, okra, collard greens, broccoli, acorn squash, spinach and turnips.

Step 2:Add dried figs and lima, kidney and navy beans to your diet.

Step 3:Drink calcium-fortified soy milk or regular milk.

Step 4:Eat calcium-fortified tofu.

Step 5:Eat fish. Sardines with the bones and canned pink salmon with bones are excellent calcium sources.

Step 6:Add nuts to your diet. Some seeds are also good sources of calcium.

Step 7:Drink calcium-fortified orange juice.

Step 8:Eat dairy products such as yogurt and cheese.

Step 9:Add 1 or 2 tbsp. of blackstrap molasses to hot water and drink it.

Step 10:Make sure you get enough vitamin D, which facilitates calcium absorption.

Step 11:Decrease your protein intake if your diet is based primarily on meat and dairy products.

Step 12:Curtail caffeine, alcohol and salt intake; they inhibit calcium absorption.
