Adults require 1,000 mg per day – preferably through diet – and this increases to 1,300 mg per day in women over 50 and men over 70. Hopefully we’re getting enough calcium from food, but if not then your body will use your bones as a bank, borrowing the calcium it needs today from the abundant supply in your bones.
Kale. An easy juice fast for the day- meaning only cold pressed juice and water today. My new BioChef juicer was the inspiration. I added 4 cups (about 250g) fresh home- grown kale, which equals and about 400mg calcium. Almost half an adults recommended intake.
