Preventing Osteoporosis: Meeting Your Calcium Needs


 

Your body needs calcium to build and repair bones. But it can't make calcium on its own. That's why it's important to eat calcium-rich foods. Some foods are naturally rich in calcium. Others have calcium added(fortified). It's best to get calcium from the foods you eat. But if you can't get enough, you may want to take calcium supplements. To meet your daily calcium needs, try the foods listed below.
