Not to mention maintain your own bone health. It is also necessary for blood clothing and for the heart, muscles and nerves to develop and function properly. During pregnancy, calcium is absorbed more efficiently so the amount of calcium required is the same as before you are pregnant. 1000 mg if you are 19 or older. So what are excellence sources of calcium? The obvious answer is dairy products like milk, cheese and yogurt. Many of my clients like cheese and yogurt, but do not like to drink milk. No problem. If you do not like to drink it, try alternative milk products like saw your own milk as long as they are 45 with calcium. There are non-dairy excellence sources calcium include tofu, calcium 45 orange juice and salmon with bones. Keep in mind that not all non-diary alternatives are going to supply the amount of protein found in daily products.
