What would we do if we had no bones? We would just be all skin, spineless. Could not even stand, can’t even walk. That is why we need our bones strong and healthy. That is why calcium is the most abundant mineral in our body. 99% of calcium is found in our bones and in our teeth. Two or three pounds of it are mostly found in our bones and in our teeth. Imagine a world without bones. Imagine a world without teeth.
As much as calcium is very essential for our teeth and bones, we also use it in different ways. We use calcium to be an electrolyte for transmitting nerve signals, for water balance, for neutralizing acid/alkaline in our bodies and maintaining osmotic pressure. Calcium also helps in blood clotting, muscle contraction and heart muscle function.
So in order to prevent calcium deficiency we are listing whole foods that are a good calcium source. Other than food we are also listing other ways so we can avoid calcium deficiency. So, here they are.
Eat Foods Containing Calcium
In order to get calcium, we need to eat whole foods that are a good source for calcium. Some of these foods are milk and yogurt, cheese, bones in canned sardines and salmon, orange juice and soy milk, and dark green leafy vegetables.
Then it is also important to take calcium supplements. But be sure to take calcium supplements that are in a compound form. Calcium citrate and calcium carbonate would be the best choices for this. It is the best choice because calcium citrate and calcium carbonate are easy to find, they contain huge amounts of elemental calcium and are easily digested.
Third, take vitamin D. Vitamin D helps in calcium absorption. The recommended dosage would be more than 50 micro grams or 2000 International Units a day.
Fourth is to exercise. In any type of age or fitness level, exercise is always a must for people to be healthy. With regards to calcium deficiency, exercising regularly will better assimilate calcium into the body compared to sedentary individuals. Lack of physical activity prevents our bodies from assimilating calcium.
Take Some Sunshine Vitamin
Fifth, we need to get some natural sunshine. As taking in vitamin D supplements are important. Twenty minutes of direct or indirect sunlight will give our bodies plenty of natural vitamin D. This is why vitamin D is called the sunshine vitamin.
Sixth, stop smoking or if you are planning to smoke, don’t go ahead with that plan. Smoking only intensifies osteoporosis or other calcium deficiency diseases.
Seventh, drink less alcohol. Same as with smoking, alcohol intensifies calcium deficiency.
the dairy industry is bestiality/rape/kidnapping/slavery/infanticide/murder...the bull is anal electrocuted for his semen...I highly suggest you all educate yourself and watch #Earthlings or #Cowspiracy or #Vegucated or #SickFatandNearlyDead
Um this ignorance is worth not following this page anymore!Calcium deficiency comes from a lack of magnesium. Not calcium. Promoting more calcium for a population of people over calcified is asinine!
Milk and dairy cause calcium deficiency, leading to osteoporosis. Cows milk is designed for baby calves not human beings. The dairy industry causes tremendous suffering to animals and animal agriculture is the leading cause for ocean dead zones, species extinction, water pollution and habitat destruction. Watch Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret .
No it doesn't, milk causes osteoporosis and acidosis. Besides cows milk is designed for baby calves not human beings. The dairy industry causes tremendous suffering to animals and animal agriculture is the leading cause for ocean dead zones, species extinction, water pollution and habitat destruction.

Lol actually milk depletes calcium from your body. Milk is very acidic and our bodies release calcium to neutralize it. Best source of calcium is from vegetables.
I was waiting for this reply!Thanks.In fact I tend to believe that every commercial product owe its existence due to intensive publicity,so that it becomes a necessacity!And so we are convinced of its importance.

Shah sahab all doctor will give you calcium therapy for nothing when we are flushed with calcium by such diets like milk or its products in Hindus or meat or its product in you's__then why they are giving extra calcium__ in fact they are harming us __calcium is needed in minute amount not like carbohydrates or protein___ problem is that it is inducing deaseas like stone ,stiffness, arthritis etc.___for example you develop rhinitis after taking buttermilk or rabdi or meat taken on next day__
