SHOULD YOU BE TAKING CALCIUM SUPPLEMENTS?
In a perfect world, you’d be able to get all the calcium you need from your food. But, in case you haven’t noticed, the world is not quite perfect. Research shows that more than a third of Americans aren’t getting enough calcium through diet. While we should be getting a minimum of 1,000 milligrams daily, on average, we only get 600. Calcium is really, really important.
If you’re having trouble reaching the required 1000 milligrams of calcium per day (for adults), you might want to consider adding a supplement to your daily routine.
