Dietician Natalya Dinullina told how to avoid calcium deficiency in the body.

Calcium is one of the important microelements obtained by the body. Complete absorption of calcium is of great importance for maintaining healthy and strong bones, teeth, muscles and hair. With age, this importance only increases, since for people (especially women) the risk of developing osteoporosis, a pathological condition of bone tissue that becomes weak and susceptible to destruction, increases.

For those taking micronutrient supplements, nutritionist Dinullina advised to remember: normal levels of vitamin D are important for calcium absorption. For this reason, older people are recommended to have their body tested for this vitamin to better protect against hip fracture.

“Vitamin D helps calcium get into bone tissue. The leaders in its content are fish, caviar, butter, cheese, sour cream, and eggs. It is also possible to take pharmaceutical medications, but first you should get tested for the level of vitamin D in the blood,” the expert shared.
Dinullina added that in order to prevent age-related problems with joints, fractures and osteoporosis, the body must receive, in addition to calcium, phosphorus and magnesium – and in the proper proportion.

“One of the conditions is to maintain the balance of calcium, phosphorus, magnesium in a ratio of 1:1:0.5,” the specialist stated.
What foods contain calcium, magnesium and phosphorus? Among the sources of calcium, the expert considers milk-based products, as well as fish, to be the best.

Magnesium can be obtained from dried fruits, nuts, seeds, milk, fish, eggs.

Phosphorus – from offal, meat, fish, eggs, milk, bread.

Earlier, the portal wrote that eating canned food in metal cans can increase the risk of cancer.
