The Power of Vitamin D
Your body requires vitamin D to absorb calcium. There are 3 ways to get vitamin D: sunlight, food, and supplements. Because of the use of sunscreen as well as other factors, which limit your body’s ability to make the vitamin, many people rely on food and a vitamin D supplement to meet their dietary needs.
How Much Calcium to Take
The amount of calcium you require depends on your age and sex. Adults age 19 to 50 and men age 50 to 70 need 1,000 mg per day, while women age 51 and over and men over 70 need 1,200 mg per day.** To get the recommended calcium, make sure foods high in calcium are part of your diet.
