Nutrition Tip of the Day: Calcium

I'm reading that most American women get far less calcium in the diet than they need.  If you are taking a calcium supplement it is best to take it at night right before bed time.  Your body utilizes calcium while you are sleeping and if you haven't provided enough of it nutritionally through food your body will draw it from your bones which can lead to weakening of the bone structures and osteoporosis.

The best kind of calcium supplement to take it calcium citrate.  Take it with magnesium, potassium and Vitamin D3.  These four minerals and vitamins need the others for the body to metabolize and use them.

Peace be with you and all that jazz...
