What is the best calcium to take for bones support? What is the best way to take calcium to get the best benefits?

What is the best calcium to take for bones support? What is the best way to take calcium to get the best benefits?

There : There is no clear answer to this. While the "best" source is dairy products as far as absorption, they have a lot of calories and many people have lactose intolerance. It requires about a quart of dairy products per day to get enough calcium. The lactose helps with solubility and absorption and dairy is fortified with vitamin d. There are also other minerals, such as magnesium, included in milk. Since many people do not get enough dairy, supplementation is helpful. Calcium carbonate and calcium citromalate are readily absorbed. While Tums are easy to take and relatively cheap, they do not include vitamin d. You need to take 5 regular Tums to get 1000mg of calcium. While that is adequate for many adult men, it is inadequate for adolescents and perimenopausal women who need 1500mg per day. Some people will benefit from 2000mg per day, but more than that is associated with kidney stones. There are many supplements that offer calcium and vitamin d together. However, they tend to be large pills that are "hard to swallow." another source are the calcium chews, which come in regular and sugar-free versions. They provide 500mg calcium and 400iu vitamin d each, but also have vitamin k, making them inappropriate for people on coumadin. In the end, the best calcium source is the one you will use reliably. Since it doesn't work if you don't take it, you need to find the one that fits best into your lifestyle. ...Read more
