Worried about osteoporosis?

One way that can help prevent osteoporosis is getting enough calcium. Milk and other dairy products, leafy green vegetables, and canned salmon and sardines are some of the best sources of the calcium you need to build strong bones.

Here are 7 somewhat surprising sources of calcium:

1. Kale – One cup of cooked kale packs 177 mg of calcium, while one raw cup delivers 53 mg.

2. Bok Choy – Also known as Chinese cabbage, 1 cup of raw bok choy contains 74 mg of calcium, while one cooked cup offers 158 mg.

3. Broccoli – One cup of chopped raw broccoli packs 43 mg of calcium. You get almost twice the calcium when you cook it.

4. Sesame seeds – Just two tablespoons (1 oz) of toasted sesame seeds packs 280 mg of calcium.

5. Chia seeds – An ounce of chia seeds delivers 179 mg of calcium.

6. Almonds – One serving or roughly 1/4 cup of almonds packs 100 mg of calcium

7. Orange juice – One cup of orange juice delivers roughly 3

Nowadays, this is crucial to get the best foods for our bodies. The calcium is important not only for bones and other systems in the body. Also, we can take calcium as a supplement if needed with our healthy diet.

Have a wonderful day,
