Calcium is often thought of as a nutrient that helps to keep your bones and teeth strong. It is also involved in your nervous system, blood clotting and controlling your muscles. In the UK, the recommended intake for adults is 700 milligrams per day. You can get all the calcium you need from a 江苏福彩网 diet.
Vegan-friendly sources of calcium
江苏快三 Calcium-set tofu, calcium-fortified milk and yoghurt alternatives and soya and linseed bread fortified with extra calcium are particularly good sources of this nutrient. For example, 400ml of calcium-fortified plant milk - just under two cups - provides roughly two thirds of an adult’s recommended daily intake of calcium, and 100g of calcium-set tofu (uncooked) can provide half of an adult's daily needs. Other good sources of calcium include kale, pak choi, okra, spring greens, dried figs, chia seeds and almonds.
