Did you know that besides building strong bones and teeth, calcium helps to regulate the heart and other muscles? Calcium is also necessary for normal blood pressure and blood clotting. All of us need adequate calcium, not just growing kids! Calcium recommendations vary depending on age and special needs. In general, adults should get 1,000-1,200 milligrams (mg) of calcium each day. Good sources include skim and low-fat milk, yogurt, calcium-fortified orange juice, low-fat cheeses, dark green vegetables, soybeans, and tofu.
