Calcium and the menopause

Updated: Sep 4, 2022

CALCIUM Calcium is essential for peri and menopausal women. As you enter this stage of your life, menopause triggers the speed at which you lose bone density/strength. This CAN lead to Osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is massively on the increase right now in older women. BUT it can be preventable! As well as adding strength training to your week, you also need to be thinking about getting some calcium down you too! We start to lose bone density at 30 years of age, but we lose it much quicker as we hit menopause years. It speeds up quickly. This is why it is essential to be adding 800mg of calcium to your diet daily. 3 portions could be... 200ml milk 25g piece of cheese 125g pot of yoghurt COWS MILK IS THE BEST SOURCE OF CALCIUM If you are not lactose intolerant or allergic to cows milk or if it doesn't go against your ethical values, then choose cows milk. Like everyone else, I've been drinking almond milk thinking it was better for me. But after a little research I'm finding that at this stage in my life I need to get back to drinking cows milk. Comparison Cows milk 47 cals 3.6g protein 124g calcium Coconut milk 105cals 1.6g protein 0 calcium!!!! Almond milk 13 cals 0.5g protein 120g calcium BUT this calcium has been added in the factory. Almonds do not contain calcium. It's not natural.
