Calcium is the mineral that is required for teeth, muscle, nerve and also bone health. Adequate calcium intake helps to prevent osteoporosis, the thinning and the brittleness of bone problem.
Though osteoporosis is more significant among elderly women, yet men are not exempted, though they are in lesser percentage.
Post-menopausal women are suggested to take around 1000 milligrams (mg) of calcium daily. Beside causing muscle rigor, calcium deficiency also will increase the risk of sleep disruption (difficulty to sleep or often waken up or not being able to sleep).
Daily recruitment of 800 mg of calcium also is suggested for adults or women of under 50 years old. Among foods which are rich with calcium are milk, tofu, salmon, broccoli and spinach.
If a person finds out that his or her calcium intake is unable to meet the daily needs for calcium, calcium supplement intake is the best alternative.
Taking calcium citrate should become a higher priority because it is better absorbed by the body. Taking it with other minerals like magnesium and zinc is also important in improving the absorption rate and giving a synergistic impact.Sponsored links:
