FAITH MAKES IT POSSIBLE NOT EASY

When you raise yourself above a servant,
you have just ranked yourself above Savior.


Have you ever been just sitting there and all of a sudden you feel like doing something nice for someone you care for? THAT'S GOD talking to you through the Holy Spirit.

Calcium emoticon

Your body needs calcium to build and maintain strong bones and teeth. You must absorb calcium every day from your dietary intake because your body does not make calcium. You lose calcium through shed skin, nails, hair, sweat, urine and feces. When you do not have enough calcium, your body breaks down bone to obtain the mineral.

Bones are constantly going through a process known as remodeling in which small amounts of old bone are removed and new bone is formed in its place. Generally, after age 35, more bone is lost than gained. Bone loss accelerates after menopause.

Women are vulnerable to osteoporosis, or a thinning of the bones, which develops slowly over many years. Researchers believe that decreasing hormone levels, too little calcium in the diet early in life, and lack of exercise play a role in osteoporosis.

You can get the amount of calcium required daily through a variety of foods. Milk and dairy products offer the biggest source of calcium. Green leafy vegetables are another source of calcium. Therefore, eating a balanced diet with a variety of foods is very important.

The National Academy of Sciences' Institute of Medicine has issued new daily calcium and vitamin D intake guidelines for various groups of persons:



Adequate Intake (AI)*

Calcium

Males and females 9 - 18 years
1,300 mg

Women and men 19 - 50 years
1,000 mg

Pregnant or nursing women up to age 1
1,300 mg

Pregnant or nursing women 19 - 50 years
1,000 mg

Men and women over 50
1,200 mg



Vitamin D

People 9 - 50 years with limited sun exposure
1,300 IU

People 51 - 70 years with limited sun exposure
1,000 IU

People over 70 with limited sun exposure
1,300 IU



*Adequate Intake (AI) is the mean intake which appears to sustain a defined nutritional state by most people in a specific group.

** People who spend adequate amounts of time in the sun do not need dietary vitamin D intake.

Selecting foods high in calcium is one way to help you achieve your targeted daily calcium intake. Here are 25 major food sources of calcium to assist your meal planning.
