  • greens do have a lot of cacuim, but if you don't eat them often enough, your body will not produce enough of the oaxalic acid to absorb the calcium & it will go right through you. Here is a list of plants high in calcium:

    Almonds – 1 oz. (about 23 nuts) - 75 mg.
    Blackstrap Molasses – 1 T. – approximately 137 mg.
    Beans
    White beans 3/4 cup has 120 mg
    Navy beans 3/4 cup has 94 mg
    Black Turtle beans 3/4 cup has 75 mg
    Chickpeas 3/4 cup – 58 mg
    Tofu 150g – 350 mg
    Brazil Nuts – 2 oz. (about 12 nuts) - 90 mg.
    Broccoli – 2 cups boiled - 124 mg.
    Celery - 2 cups raw - 81 mg.
    Collard Greens - 1 cup boiled - 266 mg.
    Flax Seeds – 2 T. - 52 mg.
    Instant Oats - 1 packet – 165 mg
    Kale – 1 cup boiled - 94 mg.
    Kelp - 1 cup raw - 136 mg.
