People can get calcium from dairy products, but the calcium that comes from that source is usually not as good as calcium from the dairy, says Paul R. DellaVigna, MD, PhD, an associate professor of medicine at the Mayo Clinic and the coauthor of the new book, How to Make the Best Milk.
“Calcium supplements that contain calcium may not be as effective as calcium supplements that don’t contain calcium.”
The book is part of the Weston A. Price Foundation’s Weston A Price Foundation Dairy Products Program, which is a partnership between the Weston C. Price Food and Nutrition Foundation, the Weston Price Foundation, and the National Institutes of Health.
In this book, the authors discuss how dairy products can help boost your body’s calcium levels, and they give specific suggestions for how to get the most from your dairy products.
The book is also available in Kindle format and on Amazon.com.
“There are some dairy products that have been shown to be a good source of calcium,” DellaVergara says.
“I do not recommend that people go down the rabbit hole to find calcium supplements.
But there are some things you can do to boost your calcium.
So this is a really good book to read.”
Dairy products include milk, cream, and cheese.
Dannon, the maker of the popular Jack Daniels brand of milk, has a calcium content of about 30 mg/100 ml.
The company recommends that people eat 2 cups of milk a day.
“You can have more milk, but it is a good idea to add the calcium to your milk as well,” says DellaVargara.
Dannon’s calcium content varies by brand.
It is listed on its website as having a calcium of 60 mg/200 ml, which makes it the highest calcium milk you can buy.
For more information, go to the company’s website at dannon.com/milk.
“Dannon also recommends that you add a supplement called Kcal, which has a high content of calcium, and it is also a good supplement for boosting your calcium intake,” says Rene Hildebrandt, MD., a professor of nutrition and nutrition counseling at Boston University.
“People should also add 1 teaspoon of calcium-rich foods such as chicken, eggs, and salmon daily.”
Rene Hildemarbrandt is a senior nutrition consultant at the University of California, San Diego.
She is a regular reader of Weston Price’s Milk and Dairy Products for Health and Health Professions and has written extensively about dairy products for publications including the New England Journal of Medicine, the Journal of Clinical Nutrition, and Health Psychology.
“It is not the highest source of good calcium, but I would recommend it for those who are concerned about their calcium levels,” Hildemonsterbrandt says.
The book also contains tips on how to make the best milk.
“This book is really geared toward people who want to supplement their milk intake and increase their calcium,” says Hildemeierbrandt.
“If you have a milk allergy, the book will be helpful in helping you understand how to tell if you are sensitive or not.”
There are several dairy products in the Weston J. Price Dairy Products Family.
There are several types of calcium and magnesium supplements.
“The Weston A and C products are very good for people who are already consuming calcium from other sources, or for people that have a lactose intolerance,” says Kelli McInnis, PhD., an associate research professor of dietetics and food science at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.
But, she adds, people should not try to increase their intake of dairy products to the point that they are producing excessive amounts of calcium.
“A lot of people have a problem with calcium,” she says.
“The Weston C and D products are great for people with a calcium deficiency or other calcium deficiencies,” she adds.
“However, there is a tradeoff.
These products are not as effective if you supplement with calcium from a supplement, or if you have certain types of diabetes.”
If you want to get more calcium from your milk, you need to get calcium directly from the cow.
“To increase your calcium, you must make sure you get the calcium from cows,” says McInnes.
If you don’t get enough calcium from animals, you could increase your intake of calcium from fish, poultry, or nuts, but McInns says the benefits of this are limited. “
Also, cows can be fed calcium through feed and other nutrients, but not necessarily by adding it to the milk,” she notes.
If you don’t get enough calcium from animals, you could increase your intake of calcium from fish, poultry, or nuts, but McInns says the benefits of this are limited.
“Fish and poultry are rich sources of calcium as well, but they also are high in omega-6 fatty acids, which are the nutrients that are needed for calcium to be produced.”
McInnes also suggests people who have
