The Osteoporosis Society of Canada recommends the following intake of calcium and Vitamin D every day to maintain strong bones:

Age Minimum Calcium Requirement Vitamin D Requirement
4-8 800 mg 200 IUs
9-18 1300 mg 200 IUs
19-50 1000 mg 400 IUs
50+ 1500 mg 800 IUs

lactating women 18+

Be sure to get the recommended amount of calcium every day. Calcium supplements come in a variety of forms, dosages and combinations with Magnesium, Vitamin D and zinc. These are all awesome nutrients that can improve the absorption and efficacy of Calcium.
