Calcium Requirement for women

Calcium is very important for your body & getting adequate calcium in your diet is ideal. If you do not get enough calcium in your diet, the body will take what it needs form the bones for normal function, thus leading to a thinning and weakening of the bones over time (a condition called osteopenia or osteoporosis).
So a premenopausal woman should get 1000 mg of elemental calcium per day and a post menopausal woman needs a bit more i.e. 1200 – 1500 mg per day.
