Can anyone list some things I can eat to get the calcium I need since I do not eat and drink dairy. Of course I need to eat stuff that won't possibly break me out.

I have taken a Calcium vitamin 500mg with magnesium 250mg quite a few times but usually get 1 or 2 spots around this time. Not sure if it is coincidence or not. Maybe the Calcium and Magnesium are hindering the performance of the Zinc supplement and Multivitamin I take during the day.

Maybe I should try a lesser amount Calcium Supplement without magnesium?

Anyways any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.
