increase on calcium intake does not help seniors.
Calcium, something we need to make our bones more strength to last us a long time without pain... but if you are a senior, then calcium is not helping you increase your bone strength. The recommended amount of calcium to have a day, for seniors, is between 1000 to 1200 mg per day. This actually doesn't help due to recent studies. Studies show that this intake gives seniors a about 1-2% increase, which which is not going to help seniors prevent fractures. This shows that of you start to consume calcium at old age, then it will not end up helping you and preventing fractures.
