Whether you are intolerant to dairy or choose to refrain from having dairy in your diet, there are other ways to get calcium in your bod.
Calcium is important for overall health. It really is!
It promotes healthy skin, bones, blood and is great for your muscles!
Calcium is a super important mineral and some people just don’t get enough ( and may not even realise!)If people aren’t getting enough calcium in their diet, the body takes calcium from the bones to ensure normal cell function, which can lead to weakened bones.
