Calcium Sources

A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 2007, shows that calcium from food sources is more effective than calcium from supplements.  This is because calcium from food sources is usually absorbed more completely.

Best sources of calcium include:

* Raw milk and other raw dairy products, e.g. yoghurt
* Dark green, leafy vegetables
* Almonds - If you are allergic to dairy, you can have almond milk which is also rich in calcium. I will   
  be posting my personal recipe for almond milk soon.

Additionally, Vitamin D is very important for the absorption of calcium - make sure you get plenty of sunshine!

**Remember:  Getting nutrients the way nature intended is the best way to stay healthy
