Importance of Calcium

Bones are made of cells that grow and die just like all of the other tissue in our body. When we are younger our bones grow and strengthen and when we hit the age of about 30 and our bones begin breaking down quicker then we are able to replenish them. You can strengthen your bones by increasing your calcium intake. The average adult needs 1,000 mg of calcium, if you are not consuming the adequate about of calcium your body needs your body will begin taking the calcium from your bones, this can lead to osteoporosis. Calcium can be found in many different foods, which makes reaching your recommended dosage of calcium easy! Calcium can be found in vegetables, fruits, grains, nuts, and beans. There are several other things that can help promote bone health like vitamins and weight bearing exercises, but there are also many factors that can be detrimental to your bone health like caffeine and smoking. I challenge your to meet the recommended daily dose of calcium every day this week!
