Wondering about the best plant-based sources of calcium? You're not alone. Finding the best plant-based sources of calcium can be tricky. The challenge, however, is not because there aren't any good plant-based sources of calcium. The issue is that many of us weren't raised on plant-based diets, so we don't have the necessaryplant-based diet education to help us identify which foods we need to eat to create a balanced diet and healthy body.



This (understandable) gap in our education is one of the reasons we created ourPlant-Based Vegan Guide. This comprehensive ebook is nutritionist-backed and gives readers a comprehensive guide on how to enjoy plant-based eating to its fullest without leaving any potentially dangerous holes in our nutrition. The guide also includes 40 recipes--including snacks and desserts--to show you just how delicious plant-based eating can be.

The Best Plant-Based Sources of Calcium

You don’t need to drink milk or eat dairy to get enough calcium. But, you do need to be mindful to consume the right kinds of calcium-rich plants to support optimal bone health.


About Oxalates and Plant-Based Sources of Calcium

Oxalates are compounds found in certain calcium-rich plants that can inhibit calcium absorption. So, while almonds, spinach, beets, nuts, oranges, Swiss chard and rhubarb are good sources of calcium, they're actually also higher in oxalates. 

The very best plant-based sources of calcium are kale, collards and mustard greens. You can even eat calcium-fortifiedplant-milks or fruit juices.



How Much Calcium Do You Need to Consume Per Day?

The RDA for calcium for men 19-50 years old is 1,000 mg to 2,500 mg.

For men 51-70 years old, 1000 mg to 2,000 mg.

For men 71+, it's 1,200 mg to 2,000 mg.

For women 19-50 years old, the RDA is 1,000 mg to 2,500 mg.

For when 51+, it's 1,200 mg to 2,000 mg.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
