*Getting 1,000 mg to 1,200 mg of calcium per day is one of the best ways to prevent bone-weakening osteoporosis later in life.
*Calcium from dairy products in combination with a balanced, low-fat diet can help keep blood pressure in check.
*Calcium in food is better absorbed by the body than calcium in a supplement. Strive to consume at least three calcium-rich foods daily such as low-fat or nonfat yogurt, skim milk, low-fat ice cream, calcium-fortified orange or grapefruit juice, low-fat cheese and low-fat cottage cheese.
*Take a 500 mg calcium supplement each day and try to get the remaining 500 mg to 700 mg of calcium from food.
YOUR CHALLENGE TODAY: Get in your Calcium. Mom used to say: "Drink your milk!" (Maybe Mom knew something we didn't?)
Have a FANTASTIC Wednesday!
“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”
