There has been talk about calcium supplements causing problems - but as far as I am aware - that is only if they are taken to excess - like everything else -excess calcium can cause trouble in the body - but that is only in EXCESS - You can track your calcium intake by setting it in your nutrition tracker - Always remember that calcium doesn't work alone in the body - it needs other nutrients before it is absorbed and before it can work.
being allergic to dairy and wheat at the very least, I just do the best I can by eating lots of greens and broccoli. I used to take supplements but someone posted an article that said that according to new research, supplements raise the chance of Heart attacks in post menopausal women. however, I'm thinking maybe I should start them back up again.
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all they ways, acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
Foods high in calcium include cheese, yogurt, milk, sardines, dark leafy greens, fortified cereals, soybeans and enriched breads, grains and waffles.
Thats the basic answer. If you look on WebMD they have a good article I'll see if I can get the link for you. At least the above gives you a general idea of what foods can help. Hope you like sardines! lol
