Fuentes de calcio

La obtención de calcio para evitar el adelgazamiento de los huesos a lo largo de la vida puede ser más difícil si la persona muestra intolerancia a la lactosa o presenta otras razones para evitar las fuentes alimenticias ricas en calcio, como una tendencia a los cálculos renales. La deficiencia de calcio también afecta al corazón y al sistema circulatorio, así como a la secreción de hormonas esenciales. Existen muchas formas para suplementar el calcio, ente ellas un gran número de alimentos fortificados.
