Last week, I talked about Magnesium.
This week, I wanted to talk about calcium and specifically how to get it through your diet without always looking to dairy products. Yes, dairy products do contain high amounts of calcium and so do many other foods.
Dairy can tend to be a pro-inflammatory food for a lot of people, so I think it’s important to be incorporating other food sources to keep our bones strong, as well.
Non-Dairy Food with Decent Calcium Content
Soybeans (tofu, soy milk)
Nuts & Seeds
Chicken bone broth
Although this is not an exhaustive list, it’s a pretty good one. How many calcium foods are part of your regular diet?
I’m a big fan of eating your nutrients and I teach all my patients to do this as much as possible. You can become a patient in my Portland Clinic or see me for Whole Life Coaching & Consulting if you don’t live near.
Be sure to share this post with family and friends so they make sure they’re eating enough calcium, too!
