According to the National Institutes of Health, calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body and it’s also essential to the building of strong bones and a healthier metabolism.

Hey, blame it on those Got Milk commercials and great marketing!

No need to worry at all because there are quite a few non-dairy foods that pack a serious calcium punch, and in this Fit 411 episode I’ll share 5 of them!
