Health Care Guidance & Advice

Calcium needs for adults

It is never too late to build strong bones. As you get older, the amount of minerals in your bones decreases. If you lose too much calcium, you may develop osteoporosis. You can take steps now to prevent osteoporosis and minimize your risk for bone fractures later on. Weight-bearing activities benefit bone health, but exercise alone is not enough. You need to eat plenty of calcium-rich foods. Experts agree that good nutrition can reduce the likelihood of osteoporosis. At least three servings of low-fat or fat-free milk, cheese and yogurt are especially good sources of calcium. Plus, leafy green vegetables like broccoli and spinach are also good sources, as are calcium-fortified cereals. Improve your bone health by consuming calcium-rich foods coupled with adequate amounts of daily physical activity. Ask your doctor or registered dietitian if you would benefit from a calcium supplement.
