Dr. M. P Sharma, gastroenterologist from Rockland hospital, says that yogurt is among the best sources of calcium. Other than calcium, yogurt provides healthy bacteria, improves one’s immunity and provides vitamins. People who are milk sensitive can consume yogurt. Some other excellent sources of calcium are red kidney beans, soybeans, calcium- fortified soy and orange juice, tofu, breads, petit pois, broccoli, cabbage, mustard greens, celery and parsnips. To maintain proper dental and bone health, we need calcium. The recommended calcium level for people between 19-70 years is 1000 mg per day. Recommended calcium intake for women over 51 and for men over 70 is 1200 mg per day.
