What calcium supplement should I use, calcium carbonate or calcium citrate?

Either: Just make sure you take the proper amount to balance with your diet and take 2000 units vitamin d3 as well, citrate is easier to absorb and doesn't need to be taken with meals, but can be more expensive and less "calcium dense" per pill. ...Read more

Is it safe to take glucosamine, chondroitin, msm, vitamin d, calcium citrate, multivitamin, l arginine, l lysine, l ornthinine, Prilosec together?

Is it safe to take glucosamine, chondroitin, msm, vitamin d, calcium citrate, multivitamin,  l arginine, l lysine, l ornthinine, Prilosec together?

Should be fine: I don't see any significant problems taking all of these supplements. If you have any side effects, however, it may be a challenge to know which is the culprit. Typically, side effects from these are minimal or not existent. If you are taking the prilosec due to the others causing GI complaints, you may want to reconsider this strategy. ...Read more

Is safe to take in combination: Zinc, Calcium complex, Vitamin C, Flax seed oil and Whey protein?

Is safe to take in combination: Zinc, Calcium complex, Vitamin C, Flax seed oil and Whey protein?

Those supplements: in combination are not a problem. Perhaps a more important question would be why do you take them all? If you have health concerns please see your doc or a nutritional consultant. Split vitamin C up into a.m. and p.m. doses because it only lasts about 12 hours in body. Peace and good health. ...Read more

Is it safe to take a multivitamin, omega-3 supplement, probiotic, vitamin D3, vitamin K2, and my SSRI antidepressant together daily?

Is it safe to take a multivitamin, omega-3 supplement, probiotic, vitamin D3, vitamin K2, and my SSRI antidepressant together daily?

Safe but: why do you need so many supplements. If you are taking a mixed diet, , none of the supplements other than vitamin D3 are doing you any good.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

Have bone density scan tomo morn. No calcium supplmnts BUT drank 3 glasses almondMilk:135% daily value calcium (fortified w/tricalcium phosphate).Bad?

Have bone density scan tomo morn. No calcium supplmnts BUT drank 3 glasses almondMilk:135% daily value calcium (fortified w/tricalcium phosphate).Bad?

If too much sugar: It can be bad if the almond milk has sugar added, which it probably does. Drinking sweetened drinks is a fast way to down many, many grams of sugar. Sugar is bad stuff (but a little bit is ok). As for the bone density scan, no worries. Calcium-fortified foods and drinks won't alter one's bone density overnight. ...Read more

Who needs a calcium supplement?

All: As far as i'm concerned, all could benefit from 800-1200 mg daily. Broccoli and salmon has more calcium than a glass of milk and more nutritious too. Children and post menopausal women are at highest risk of poor bone health. Vitamin d (2-5000 units) is also needed for bone health. ...Read more
