Milk is an essential component of our life especially for women whose bones need calcium more than men. Milk is a rich source of calcium.
The connection between calcium and weight loss seems to be feeble but some studies show that milk is really proved good for the body when it comes to body fat.
A research conducted in 2010 by the researchers of University of Alabama Birmingham concluded that fat was significantly reduced in those women who take calcium rich food in pre-menopausal condition. In fact, they lost an inch of intra-abdominal fat for every 100 milligrams of calcium.
Calcium does not only strengthen the bones but also help you sleep better and relax the muscle nerves when you are facing muscle soreness or cramps. Dairy products are a good source of calcium.
Sardines, tofu, fortified orange juice, leafy greens like kale and spinach are other sources of calcium and its addition in diet work wonder.
