For the majority of people who do not need extra Calcium it would seem reasonable for them to receive their daily requirement calcium just from the diet. This group will consist of people who have vastly different calcium intakes. Dairy produce (milk, yoghurt and cheese) has high amounts but those who avoid dairy products may find their Calcium intakes lower than the nationally recommended amounts.

Boosting your calcium intake can be achieved from soya milk, nuts, beans and green vegetables. Calcium in the diet can be increased further by consuming fruit juices fortified with calcium.
