The Best Dairy-Free Ways to Get More Calcium #1: Sardines

October 23, 2014 1 min read

Calcium is one of THE MOST IMPORTANT nutrients of all. Not only does it contribute to bone health, but it plays a role in skin health, fat burning, organ function, brain function, and so much more! This this series, we'll take a look at great sources of calcium all with one thing in common: none of them are dairy products! For the lactose intolerant, our first awesome source of calcium is sardines. Sardines contain about 321 milligrams of calcium (about 32% of your total daily value) in just 7 small fillets. In one meal, you can get nearly 1/3rd of all the calcium you need just by adding sardines into your life.

These fatty acids play a role in heart health, reduce inflammation, fight fat storage, improve brain health, and combat joint pain and arthritis. You can get a pretty solid dose of Vitamin D from sardines, which, when combined with the calcium, improves your bone health drastically!
