What’s the best way to up my calcium intake if I’m lactose intolerant?

Vitamin D is key to the optimal absorption and use of calcium, so firstly, ensure your vitamin D level is in the optimal range, your calcium needs can then usually be met through diet.

Women need approximately 1,000 mg of calcium daily. Try and meet that need with:
