People looking for CALCIUM to help their bone health, joints (and heart as well), have multiple choices these days. Calcium is available in capsules, tablets, powders, and liquids; as well as in combinations that include added minerals and vitamins for improved effect. You are usually safe with CALCIUM CITRATE; however, other forms can be tried as well.
Keep in mind the standard dose of 1,000-1,500mg of Calcium daily was based on the less-absorbable forms of CARBONATE and OYSTER SHELL. Theirs was so poor, you needed to take a pretty large amount in order toget some useable calcium. The rest would usually store in the intestines and simply calcify, causing digestive problems.
Lately a newer form has made the rounds: it’s called “Red Marine Algae”; an actual sea vegetable. It appears people really like this plant form for its quick absorption, especially when combined with a Red Marine Algae–form of MAGNESIUM.
I think it would be best if you just come-in and check out all our different options of CALCIUM …at the Gesundheit! Nutrition Center on North 19th Avenue.
