The USDA states that all women in child-bearing years should take 1000-1300mg of calcium daily.
Calcium is best taken from naturally occuring sources and there are dozens of non-dairy sources for those with lactose-tolerance issues.
You should know also that calcium has enhanced absorption in the presence of ascorbic acid(Vitamin C) and Vitamin D.
The website listed below will have more info that you might want but it is a great place to start.
I use this site a lot...hope this helps.....
