We know that calcium is a vital mineral that helps to build and protect your bones. But do you know that your calcium intake should increase as you age?
Men and women between the ages of 19 and 40 years are advised to have an intake of 800mg calcium daily, while those over the age of 50 years, should do 1,000mg daily.
Your body loses calcium on a daily basis through the skin, nails, sweat, urine and faeces. If the daily calcium need is not met, your body will use calcium from your bones to maintain normal bodily processes such as muscle contractions and the maintenance of a healthy nervous system, causing the bones to weaken, and its density to drop. Without sufficient calcium, you could experience muscle cramps, numbness, tooth decay, fatigue and irritability. And, as you age, this could lead to higher risks of osteoporosis and bone fracture. So, it’s vital to ensure that you meet your daily recommended intake.
You can get your daily calcium needs through whole foods such as dairy, green leafy vegetables, soy, nuts and fish, but you can also opt for LAC FullCal™.
