TOP FOODS HIGHEST IN CALCIUM
Calcium is necessary for the growth and maintenance of
strong teeth and bones, nerve signaling, muscle contraction, and
secretion of certain hormones and enzymes.
A deficiency in calcium can lead to numbness in fingers and toes, muscle
cramps, convulsions, lethargy, loss of appetite, and abnormal heart
rhythms.
Conversley, excess calcium (particularly from supplements) can lead to
kidney stones, calcification of soft tissue, and increased risk of
vascular diseases like stroke and heart attack.
The DV for calcium is 1000mg.


Dried Herbs




Although dried herbs are rarely used in large portions,
adding in a few extra pinches to all your sauces, soups, and stews is a
great way to get more calcium into your diet. Dried savory tops the list
with 2132mg of calcium per 100g serving (213%DV), that is 85mg (9% DV)
per tablespoon. It is followed by celery seed with 124mg (12%DV) of
calcium per tablespoon, dried thyme with 57mg (6% DV) per tblsp, dried
dill with 53mg (5% DV) per tblsp, dried marjoram with 40mg (4%DV) per
tblsp, dried rosemary with 38mg (4% DV) per tblsp, sage, sisymbrium,
oregano, spearmint, parsley, poppy seed, chervil and finally dried basil
with 21mg of calcium (2% DV) per tablespoon.
