Web Stories – Top 9 Healthy Calcium Rich Foods


February 23, 2022

Shortage of calcium in one’s body can cause pain in the legs, knees, and arms. With our body not producing the mineral, it becomes necessary to consume enough in our daily diet.

Your calcium requirement changes as you grow. A young child requires a higher amount of the mineral and may need to include more calcium rich foods in their diet. Adults need a relatively lower amount of calcium, and then the requirement rises as one grows old.

An average healthy adult needs at least 600 mg of calcium every day. That number can go up to 2000 mg in case of a natural deficiency or if other factors drive your need for calcium. Lifestyle choices, physical exertion, diet, pregnancy, lactation etc. are a few factors that can define your body’s need for calcium.
