Calcium is key to maintaining lifelong bone health. It helps maintain bone density – preventing osteoporosis. Unfortunately, the body doesn’t product calcium naturally. That’s why it’s important to ensure you’re getting enough calcium in your diet. One little 4oz cup of our yogurt can provide as much as 20% of your daily calcium needs. But we know many of you get more than that!
Some other facts about calcium and your body:
- Your body absorbs calcium better when taken through food vs. supplements. And dairy products (like yogurt) is a great source of calcium that your body can easily absorb.
- The older you get, the more calcium you should be getting to help maintain bone density. That’s why we have a discount just for seniors!
- Although they need less calcium to maintain bone density, it’s important for young children to have a calcium-healthy diet to help them build optimal bone mass for later in life.
