A Green Monster’s Guide to Plant-Based Nutrition: Calcium


NutritionGuide_BackLink (1)




Calcium is a nutrient derived from the soil and is an important nutrient you need to maintain a healthy nervous system, healthy blood pressure levels, strong bones and teeth, and to prevent osteoporosis. Most people are aware that dairy and fish are two animal-based foods that contain calcium, but you’ll be pleased, and maybe even surprised, to find that many plant-based foods also provide calcium, and some even have more than animal-based foods do.

Highly acidic dairy foods and other animal foods may actually break down your bones and contribute to a large number of health problems. Plant-based foods, on the other hand, will actually prevent that breakdown and also protect the body against inflammation.

Learn more about calcium, how to get enough, and get delicious ways to add more to your meals with our guide to plant-based calcium!
