Almost everyone knows that the calcium is important to prevent osteoporosis and maintaining the bone health.
Calcium not only helps to keep your bones and teeth strong but also helps in many body functions including the acid base balance, keeping heart and muscles in good shape and so on.
Research have shown that calcium also has a role in weight reduction however this is variable as the source of calcium has important role in enhancing weightloss. Fortified and artificial sources of calcium including pasteurized milk and others are not only inefficient but can also be harmful for the body. It also means that not all natural sources of calcium would result in weight loss too so don’t start having just anything having calcium in it!
Top 10 Sources of Calcium
Top 10 calcium rich food include:
Natural cheese (not branded and processed ones with preservatives)
Natural yogurt (again not the packaged and branded ones as preservatives make them harmful)
Natural milk (not the pasteurized and packaged ones like nestle, which is in fact harmful)
Dark green leafy vegetables including spinach, turnips, kale, collard greens, etc.
Natural eggs (not white and artificial eggs)
Natural chicken (not while / broiler artificial chicken)
The list is based on the sources available and the position of few items can be moved up or down. Also some other items may take the place of the enlisted ones too, however this is the general top 10 sources of calcium that we can have.
Please remember, natural sources don’t include anything labelled “fortified”, as that added stuff is almost useless and sometimes harmful for the body.
Also processed and artificial products like processed milk (all boxed milk available in market) and artificial chicken (white chicken that we all eat including kfc, mcdonalds and so on) is not only lacking in nutrients but harmful for the body and should be avoided.
