More Answers to “What is the daily calcium intake required for an adult female?“This mineral is essential for strong healthy bones and teeth and plays an active role in the body’s immune system. A lack of calcium in the diet is a contributing factor to osteoporosis, a condition that causes brittle bones in adults. The daily intake of calcium required by an adult is around 800mg. High levels of calcium are found in dairy products such as milk and yoghurt. On average 250ml or half a pint of cow’s milk or 150g/5oz of yoghurt contains 300mg of calcium.In addition, calcium is available in the following non-dairy food sources:almondsbrazil nutsbroccolicalcium enriched soya cheesescalcium enriched soya milkscurly kaledried apricot and figshazelnutsmackerelokraoysterspilchardspulsessalmonsardinessesame seedsspinachtofuwatercress.Some dairy products are high in fat so you should meet your body’s calcium needs by eating a diet containing a balance of dairy and non-dairy foods.http://www.netdoctor.co.uk/focus/nutrition/facts/vitamins_minerals/mineral.htm 1500 to 2000mg
I think is 2000mg.Sorry I’ve forgotten.
1500 MG but you need to take them in 3 seperate doses throughout the day (500MG 3 times daily). The catch is that you MUST take an equal amount of Vitamin D with each calcium tablet or the calcium will not absorb into your system.
