How to get your calcium without dairy

Nutrition

Calcium is an important mineral for bone and teeth health. It plays a role in disease prevention, cardiovascular health and balancing your body’s PH levels.

It's long been marketed that dairy products are the best source of calcium. Although that claim has helped the dairy industry in their success, it may not be the healthiest choice for you. Most dairy products contain hormones, antibiotics and are inflammatory, therefore creating a negative effect on your body instead“doing it good”. Also, many people have a dairy allergy or sensitivity making it difficult to digest.

So, if dairy products aren’t your best choice for calcium, what dairy free foods can you eat to get it?
