Bone is a living tissue, that is constantly renewing and repairing itself from everyday wear and tear. However, like many nutrients, calcium is absorbed less effectively as we age. Try out our calcium calculator to see if you are getting enough in your daily diet.
* The percentage of calcium is based on the Osteoporosis Canada’s daily calcium requirement for people under 50 years of age of 1000 mg.
Osteoporosis Canada’s position on nutrition for healthy bones focuses on calcium and vitamin D while stressing a well-balanced diet which includes fiber and whole grains, vitamins and minerals and protein.
