Benefits: So we all know that calcium is great for maintaining healthy bones, but did you know that maintaining a regular supply of calcium can also help you lose weight?

Low calcium levels encourage the body to release a hormone called parathyroid. Parathyroid helps regulate calcium levels in the body by breaking down bone and releasing the stored calcium when needed. The problem is that parathyroid also stimulates the production of fat and actually prevents it’s breakdown – not good!

So if you don’t want to have weak bones and a flabby mid-section, make sure you have plenty of calcium in your daily diet.

Sources: Some great sources of calcium actually come from vegetables. For example: broccoli,
kale, spinach, oranges, and green peas.
