Getting adequate calcium is crucial for maintaining strong healthy bone and muscle. People can get the recommended daily amount of calcium by eating a healthy diet that includes a variety of calcium-rich foods. Milk, yogurt, cheese, and other dairy products are the biggest food sources of calcium.

For some, eating foods with enough calcium can be difficult, and in such cases a physician will suggest taking a calcium supplement.

It is important to note, too much calcium can be harmful and cause serious side effects. For more information on what may be right for you, schedule an appointment with Orthopedic Associates.
