Calcium is required from Kids to Adults

Calcium is a mineral that makes bones stay strong. The human body consistently remove small amounts of calcium from our bones and that has to be topped up with Calcium rich foods. Calcium is a necessity for all … right from a newborn to an aged person, as the body’s need for calcium actually increases as one gets older. This is so because bones reach maximum strength and density around age 30, but as we age, our body absorbs calcium from our diet at a lower rate. We need to eat foods high in calcium to make up for this lower absorption and to help maintain the bone strength gained in the former years.

How does Calcium get absorbed in your body?

The 2 keys to Calcium absorption is to make sure you are getting enough Vitamin D and healthy fat. If you are deficient in Vitamin D, then your body is not going to absorb calcium properly. Spent time out in the sun to get your Vitamin D and if not then take supplementation for it. There are many individuals who go on crash diets and eat low fat foods or avoid fat altogether. This will result in the hinderance of calcium absorption and lead to calcium deficiency in your body. Healthy fat examples are avocado, olive oil, almonds, walnuts, peanuts, paneer, coconut milk etc.

Eat your paneer to top up your calcium levels

Have one cup of homemade full fat paneer and you get 75% of your calcium requirements in the day while low fat paneer will give only 18% of your paneer daily requirement if you are 50 plus in age. So always choose some paneer recipes like palak paneer recipe, ragi roti stuffed with paneer or palak paneer methi chaman
