Borrowed tip, passing along the info.

With many common prescription drugs leaching calcium from bones (Prozac, Paxil, Synthroid, Prilosec, Prevacid, Arimidex and Aromasin) it may be challenging to get enough calcium in our diets, especially if we want to avoid dairy products. Also, soda (average American drinks 44 gallons per year!) has phosphoric acid which prevents calcium from being absorbed by our bones. So, try some of these alternative sources of calcium which also happen to be pretty tasty:

  • Navy beans
  • Sesame seeds
  • Fortified orange juice
  • Salmon
  • Raw kale (great for smoothies)
  • Almonds

Plus, don’t forget the very best way to strengthen your bones – daily weight bearing exercises. Don’t have time? Take the stairs any time you can!
