Prevent Kidney Stones



Did you know that calcium in foods may prevent kidney stones in younger women? A study revealed that subjects who consumed a median of 1300 milligrams of calcium in their diets daily had a 27 % lower risk of developing kidney stones.

A higher intake of dietary calcium decreases the risk of kidney stone formation in younger women, "The lack of an increased risk with greater intake of calcium and the potential to increase the risk with calcium restriction reinforce that the routine restriction of dietary calcium in patients who have had a kidney stone is no longer justified."
