Aim to get 1,000 IU of vi­ta­min D and 25g of fi­bre daily, and you’ll help your body take in cal­cium more ef­fi­ciently. “Vi­ta­min D acts like a reg­u­la­tor, man­ag­ing the cal­cium lev­els in your blood and dis­tribut­ing it to your bones,” Tay­lor says. “Fi­bre pro­motes the growth of healthy gut bac­te­ria, which in turn might help in­crease cal­cium ab­sorp­tion.” Hit the tar­get amounts from food (vi­ta­min D is found in oily fish like salmon; fi­bre, in legumes and cru­cif­er­ous veg­eta­bles).
