More good news about calcium
You’re just beginning your health journey, you’ve ditched the milk and you’re ready to get your calcium from other sources. You may be struggling with that ingrained mindset that you were adding calcium every morning when you poured milk over your cereal, or into your child’s sippy cup.
Well you can still have that pour and now it can really count towards your calcium intake. Most dairy substitutes are fortified with calcium, some contain even more than we typically find in cow’s milk. And of course they’re from plant sources so the calcium is more easily assimilated by your body and won’t cause acidity. In other words….you’re actually getting the benefits of the calcium!
Silk soymilk boasts 50% more calcium per serving than cow’s milk. Their chocolate almond version contains 45% of your daily calcium requirement as does Almond Breeze unsweetened almond milk.
