Bottom line: Before you start—or stop—taking calcium supplements, speak with your doctor. Women aged 19 to 50 need 1,000 mg per day; for women 51+ it’s 1,200 mg daily. It’s possible to meet these recommendations through food—if you choose wisely. Dairy products are good choices (choose nonfat or low-fat to limit saturated fat), as are kale and collards.
