The Importance of Calcium for Women

Calcium has always been known to be an important part of a healthy diet, but it can be particular important to women. For women, calcium intake is important in pregnancy, menopause, and adolescence.

Nov. 14, 2012 - PRLog -- Drs. Goodman & Partridge, OB/GYN, a medical practice focused on providing care to women during pregnancy and birth, writes that calcium is very important for bone mineral density as well as muscle function. Because bones reach their maximum density around age 25, it is important to have a high calcium intake during adolescence and into the early 20s. In pregnancy, babies gets all of their calcium from their mother’s diet.  If the mother’s dietary intake isn’t enough, the baby will get her calcium from the stores in the mother’s bones. Outside of pregnancy, calcium deficiency can cause a variety of health problems.

Calcium can be found in many foods and vegetables, particularly in dairy products and in dark greens. For women, the phases of adolescence, pregnancy, and menopause are where calcium needs increase. Drs. Goodman & Partridge, OB/GYN urges women to pay attention to their calcium intake.
