Calcium & Vitamin D for Bone Health

Written by Jennifer Koenig on May 9, 2016

BoneHealthBeing a female puts you at greater risk for osteoporosis. Getting enough calcium and vitamin D in the diet is not only important for bone health but also things like blood clotting and nerve/muscle function.

Calcium consumption needs vitamin D to be absorbed properly, without vitamin D, your calcium could be going to waste. Sunlight is usually the main form of vitamin D for many people. If sun exposure isn’t a guarantee for you or the risks of sun exposure worry you, you can get vitamin D elsewhere.

Other sources of vitamin D:

  • Vitamin D- fortified milk
  • Salmon, tuna, mackerel
  • Egg yolks
  • Beef liver
  • Cheese

Great sources of calcium:

  • Broccoli
  • Yogurt
  • Milk
  • Collard Greens
  • Cheese
  • Kale
  • Edamame
  • Salmon
  • Figs
