The Top 18 Plant-Based Calcium Sources

Research / September 1, 2015

Did you know that over 75% of Americans are deficient in calcium?

That’s everyone, not just omnivores. But if you are a plant-based eater, it’s important to know where and which sources you can get your calcium from.

If you are 51 years old or older, it is recommended you get between 1200-1500 mg of calcium per day. (Unfortunately, the USDA says most of us are getting closer to 674 mg of calcium from our diets)

So it’s not only crucial that we get the recommended amount of calcium per day, but also from sources that are healthy and calcium-rich.

The following are the top plant-based calcium sources:

* Calcium Fortified: Unfortunately, you can’t rely upon juices and milks fortified with calcium. Here’s why

In addition to these calcium containing foods, it’s also important to reach your nutrient requirements for other bone healthy vitamins and minerals such as magnesium, vitamin D3, K2, C and adequate protein intake. Following a balanced, whole food diet is a great way to ensure your body is getting the basics. To make up for the shortfall, you can supplement with a clinically supported, multi-bone nutrient supplement.
