Boost your calcium intake through diet rather than supplements. (Real foods provide fiber and additional nutrients.) Dairy is a great source, but other food groups also offer options for meeting the recommended daily allowance of 1,000 milligrams. Keep in mind, vitamin D is essential for calcium absorption, so head outdoors without sunscreen for ten to 15 minutes three times a week to get a dose of D from the sun. <br> <br> <b>To reach your RDA, consider:</b> <br> <br> 6 ounces calcium-fortified orange juice = 338 milligrams <br> <br> 1 whole wheat English muffin = 175 milligrams <br> <br> 22 dry-roasted almonds = 75 milligrams <br> <br> 3 ounces canned pink salmon = 233 milligrams <br> <br> 1/2 cup black-eyed peas = 106 milligrams <br> <br> </p> <p> 1 1/2 Tbsp. chia seeds = 96 milligrams <br> <br> Total: 1,023 milligrams calcium </p>< body=""><>
