Bone health supplement
Calcium mineral is a Dietary Supplement used for bone health. Most people take on average 400 mg to 1000 mg on a daily basis.
This calcium supplement gives you as much calcium and vitamin D as drinking 3 glasses of whole milk, without the fat and calories.
It's the easy way to keep your bones healthy and strong. Calcium supplements may reduce the risk of osteoporosis. Osteoporosis affects middle-aged and older persons. A lifetime of regular exercise and a healthy diet that includes calcium builds and maintains good bone health and may reduce the risk of osteoporosis later in life.
Daily intakes above 1,000 mg of calcium supplement are not likely to provide any additional benefits to bone health and may cause blood vessel damage.
Also consider MultiVit Rx, a high quality multivitamin and mineral daily supplement with calcium citrate. MultiVit Rx is formulated by Ray Sahelian, M.D.
Forms of calcium and supplements
Calcium mineral is found in several forms including calcium carbonate, calcium chloride, calcium citrate, calcium gluconate, calcium pyruvate, and others. Although there are variations in absorption between the different calcium supplement forms, whether in the long run they make much of a physiological difference is not fully clear. There's no need to worry much about which form of calcium you are ingesting. Even if one form of calcium supplement, such as calcium citrate, may be better absorbed than another form, such as calcium carbonate, there is a possibility that too much calcium ingestion may not be such a good thing or necessary. A very high amount of calcium ingestion may actually lead to the possibility of kidney stones. You will also find many supplements that include calcium with magnesium.
The following are the most common forms of a calcium supplement : Calcium Carbonate is available as capsules, tablets, oral suspension, and chewable tablets; Calcium Citrate is often sold as tablets; Calcium Glubionate often as syrup; Calcium Gluceptate and Calcium Gluconate as oral solution, Calcium Gluconate as tablets and chewable tablets; Calcium Lactate as tablets; Calcium Lactate-Gluconate; Dibasic Calcium Phosphate as tablets; and Tribasic Calcium Phosphate as tablets.

The most common side effects of calcium supplements are constipation, intestinal bloating and excess gas. Increasing fluid intake may reduce symptoms. Patients who form calcium-containing stones are generally advised not to take high doses. A calcium supplement is best taken with meals. We suggest you not take more than 300 to 600 mg a day since very high dosages may increase the risk for heart and vascular disease.

The supplementation group received daily cholecalciferol 800 IU + calcium 1,000 mg for 3 years while the control group received neither supplementation nor placebo. Daily vitamin D and calcium supplementation have a positive effect on the skeleton in ambulatory postmenopausal women. In the intention-to-treat analysis, total body BMD increased significantly more in the intervention group than in the control group. The BMD change differences at the lumbar spine, femoral neck, trochanter, and total proximal femur were statistically nonsignificant.
