Calcium Deficient? Supplements, not dairy.

Silicon, along with calcium, Vitamin D and magnesium, are the key components to building and maintaining healthy bones.

In the “Ask The Doctor” section of the June 2012 Harvard Health Newsletter by Harvard Medical School, Celeste Robb-Nicholson, M.D. recommends limiting dairy intake to one or two servings a day, but not for the reasons you may think.
Why limit dairy? Dairy products may be high in fat and provide unwanted calories even when low-fat milk is used.  Other foods such as leafy green vegetables and beans also have calcium, but for people who are not getting enough calcium from these sources, the report recommends adding a 500 mg supplement instead of consuming larger quantities of dairy products in order to meet your daily calcium requirement, approximately 1200 mg.  The news supports the calcium level (500 mg) contained in our calcium, vitamin D, magnesium supplement, Silical® 1 – which is part of the Silical® System.
