We all know that calcium is a critical mineral when it comes to stengthening our bones in all stages of life, and preventing bone loss as we age. However, many are still under the unfortunate impression that eating animal products, such as dairy, is still the best way to meet their RDA. We say unfortunate, because while dairy products do contain calcium, they can have an acidifying effect once ingested. This is a problem in terms of building strong bones, because in an effort to maintain a pH balance, the body buffers the acidity by drawing alkalinizing minerals directly from where they are most plentiful...our bones and teeth.
So what do we do? Look to the plant kingdom for answers!
Plant-based sources of calcium have an alkilinizing effect on the body - meaning they give minerals without taking them away. They also contain complimentary nutrients that also aid in the formation of strong bones, such as Vitamin K, magnesium, boron, and silica. You can find high levels of alkalinizing calcium in a variety of plant foods, many of which are green (it is no coincidence that the grazers of the planet have the largest, strongest bones...). You can also find 2 amazing superfood algae-based bone builders in our new range of Veggimins supplements!
