Calcium: The Nutrient Malaysians Are Missing Out On

Did you know that these foods could deplete your calcium reservoir?

Stop Calcium Depletion! AVOID:

Salty Food

Eating too much salt can lead to calcium and bone mineral loss, especially in postmenopausal women. Limit processed foods and opt for lower-sodium alternatives.


Carbonated soft drinks can increase calcium excretion.


Caffeine’s diuretic effect causes calcium loss, especially when you consume two or more cups of coffee per day.

Red Meat

Meat contains 2 to 5 times more sulfur-containing amino acids than plant food. During the conversion of sulfur into sulfate, bone dissolves into the bloodstream and filters through the kidney into the urine. A report showed that when animal proteins were eliminated from the diet, calcium losses were cut in half.


Smoking increases the risk of fracture by 44% in long-term smokers, compared to non-smokers. This is because smoking reduces blood supply to the bones, slows the production of bone-producing cells, and affects the balance of estrogen. Quit smoking to reduce your risk of fracture by up to 50% within 10 years.
