Almonds for calcium and bone health ??

A neighbor yesterday told me she has osteoporosis and was able to stop taking the medicine because of eating almonds. Apparently not only are they high in calcium, they actually duplicate the action of the phama med.

As tx and liver disease are both hard on our bones, I wanted to pass along this info about an additional way to increase our calcium intake.

Almonds are now on my grocery list !

Thanks for posting that. I have been eating almonds for another reason, but good to know about the calcium too.

Ditto with almond milk. There are different kinds with varying degrees of fat. The no fat one is incredible.

Almond Milk is calcium rich and a good remedy to help with osteoporosis is calcium-rich almond milk. One can have the almond milk by soaking the almonds in warm water, peeling and blending them with either cow`s milk or better still, goat`s milk. Drink only raw organic milk.

Thanks,  I've been using rice milk but I'm going to try switching to almond milk.
I'll check out that link.

I really appreciate this information, I need all the help I can get.  We eat oatmeal with almonds just about every morning.  This is good news!
