The World Health Organization recommends 1,000mg of calcium per day, and 1,200mg if over 50, but what is most important is how much is truly absorbed. Most people absorb 25-30% of calcium.

Beans, nuts and seeds have moderate amounts of calcium and a slow absorption rate, soaking nuts and seeds aids in absorption.

Oxalates plays a part in calcium-oxalate kidney stones. Consuming calcium and high-oxalate foods is fine and necessary for good health, but it's important to drink plenty of fluids. Doing this helps oxalate and calcium “bind” to one another in the stomach and intestines before reaching the kidneys, making it less likely for kidney stones to form.
