Default Calcium and the vegetarian diet

We all need calcium to build up strong healthy bones and to prevent osteoporosis.

Calcium can be obtained through dairy products, calcium rich foods or vitamin supplements. It is best to talk to a doctor or health professional to make sure you take the right supplements to meet your needs and to make sure they will not interfere with any medical condition you may have or any medications you are already taking.

Here are some examples of source of calcium:

-collard greens
-blastrap molasses
-dried figs
-broccoli
-tahini
-okra
-white beans
