Foods High in Calcium

Calcium is a mineral found in many foods. The body needs calcium to maintain strong bones and to carry out many important functions. Almost all calcium is stored in bones and teeth, where it supports their structure and hardness.

The body also needs calcium for muscles to move and for nerves to carry messages between the brain and every body part. In addition, calcium is used to help blood vessels move blood throughout the body and to help release hormones and enzymes that affect almost every function in the human body.

Below is a list of foods that are high in calcium. Many of these foods are also very good for someone looking to lose weight, as they are low in sugar and high in fiber.  There are studies that show that adequate calcium intake can help with weight loss.
