This subtly sweet vegetable is packed with vitamins and minerals such as vitamin A and C, as well as calcium. As many know, calcium helps maintain healthy bones and teeth and prevents osteoperosis. In addition, calcium helps transmit nerve impulses.

To put it into perspective, one cup of Bok Choy contains about as much calcium as ½ cup of milk. Be conscious of the food you eat; diets high in protein, phosphates (which can be controlled by eliminating soda and processed meats), sugar, alcohol and caffeine leach calcium out of the body.
