Why Women Over 40 Need Calcium

Calcium is a mineral that plays a very important role in our bodies. As women, we need to be vigilant and ensure we are getting the daily recommended amount of calcium our bodies need. If you are at the age of perimenopause or menopause pay extra attention.

As we age, we’re at great risk of developing a calcium deficiency. With a deficiency comes more medical complications that most of us probably don’t want to have to worry about.

Once we hit the magic number 40, it’s likely our bodies just aren’t like they used to be. We can start to lose muscle tone, gain weight, have hormone fluctuations and are also at higher risk of developing chronic diseases. Ensuring that you get the daily recommended amount of calcium based on your age is a great way to make healthy choices.

What are the Benefits of Calcium for Women?

Calcium has a lot of great benefits and they are not just for women. Your entire family can reap the benefits of consuming calcium each day.

  • Stronger Bones
  • Stronger Teeth
  • Stronger Muscles

Nourishing the body with good foods can help keep all of us stay healthy and fit.

Easy Ways to Get the Benefits of Calcium Women Need

The best way to get the calcium our bodies need is through the foods and beverages we consume. Eating and drinking foods containing calcium or calcium-enriched products is the first step in fueling your body each day.

Dairy foods are some of my favorite ways to consume calcium. Milk, yogurt, cheese and ice cream are all at the top of my must-have list. It’s easy to get the calcium you need by adding dairy foods to your favorite recipes, snacks, and meals each day.
