  • Just add some calcium salt to your cooking but be sure to ask your GP first if you can take it regularly, you should avoid it if you have any kidneys problems.
  • Just buy some calcium tablets.
  • Calcium-fortified soy milk and juice, calcium-set tofu, soybeans and soynuts, bok choy, broccoli, collards, Chinese cabbage, kale, mustard greens, and okra. Grains, beans (other than soybeans), fruits, and vegetables (other than those listed) have some calcium also. When you realize that there is as much or more calcium in 4 ounces of firm tofu or 3/4 cup of collard greens as there is in one cup of cow's milk, you wonder why people push the milk. And then here is a page that goes into the amounts: http://www.bchealthguide.org/healthfiles/hfile68e.stm
  • I take regular strength TUMS on occasion... :-)
  • Eggs are good. Tofu is great.
  • But cooking is very important to your health. Please don't be lazy. Eat a lot of cooked (slightly) leafy green vegetables.
  • 1-29-2017 Surprise surprise! Water is the best source of calcium for most people. Hard water contains calcium and magnesium ions. Milk is a source but not the best source. Most vegetables will contain some calcium just because it is in the soil. Peanuts require calcium fertilizer, and most of it goes into the shells.
  • A cup of oil-roasted almonds has a whopping 457 mg of calcium! (But don't eat all that at once, now: a cup will also run you almost 1,000 calories.)
