When you have a range of dairy products lined up for ypur calcium implements in dairy products, but then you have a very weird problem of having trouble after eating a slice of cheese, or a glass of milk shake, then how are you going to keep the calcium level in your body? Here are some of the best foods that would help you to keep the levels of calcium in your body up, without having to go for the dairy:


Green Vegetables: Dark green vegetables are very good source of calcium. Green leafy vegetables like kale, broccoli, Swiss chard, spinach, collard etc are a very good source of calcium. Few leaves of spinach and small anount of broccoli is enough for a daily intake of calcium.


Seeds: When we say seeds, its not the raw seeds of fruits and vegetables that yiu have to gobble. When we speak of seeds, its sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, and flaxseeds that you need to be eating to get your bones stronger. A bowl of seeds would be enough for a day of calcium intake.


Nuts: I guess you never guessed that nuts are also rich in calcium. Nuts are the best source of clacium. A handful of nuts provides you equivalent amount of calcium as a person gets from a cup of milk. Nuts are also a very good source of protein.


Herbs: Dried herbs are a very good source of calcium. They are loaded with flavour, and vital nutrients. One teaspoon of thyme spdinkeld on your salad is enough for a day of calcium.


Soy: Soy is tbe best source of protein for vegans, and is also a very good source of calcium. Depending on the brand of soymilk that you buy, tbe amount of calcium varies in them.
