ABSTRACT
Analyses were conducted for calcium intake from dairy products linked with the consumption of calcium supplements and consumption of calcium-fortified food in respect to bone mineral density (BMD) of women (n=39) aged 34-56 years. A relationship was demonstrated between bone mineral density (BMD) of the women and calcium intake from dairy products, calcium-fortified food products and calcium supplements. Low BMD of the women resulted from a very low intake of calcium from dairy products and restricted use of calcium supplements and/or consumption of calcium-fortified foods. Appropriate calcium intake from dairy products was insufficient to reach high BMD values. The high BMD values of the women were determined by calcium intake from calcium-fortified foods and the consumption of calcium supplements, and – to a lesser extent – by calcium intake from dairy products with an average calcium intake.
