I was told citrate
Did you know only 20% is absorbable?
Citrate is absorbed with or without food.
Only 20% is absorbable!
Citrate is so much easier to digest and it is not made of rocks.
I use powder form calcium citrate, which I add to water and drink. One less pill to swallow, and it absorbs easily.
Only 20% absorbable!
i use whole food calcium made of algae.
Raw calcium made of algae as a supplement as body recognizes as food although food is best source. Calcium carbonate is made of rocks and limestone and only 40% absorbable, citrate is 20% absorbable.
I agree judy that's why I only take 500 mg of the algae and get the rest from my food… Just a little extra insurance
Yes me too. I strive for at least 3 calcium sources a day in addition to raw calcium supplement.
Use egg shells?
It's calcium carbonate
Zach Peahi I thought it was good too until I did more research!
When I stopped grains and dairy my calcium levels fell into the norm range
I used egg shells for like 6 months!
Did the research as per Save Our Bones Program.... Raw calcium is just like food... Other types are inorganic and can cause artery plaque formation and heart attacks!
So basically your saying all calcium supps are no good can we need to get it from our food?
Zach Peahi no take raw calcium and calcium rich foods.
Best source of calcium is good old natural food.
Yes it is! It's also good to supplement with raw calcium to ensure you get all other bone essential minerals.
Judy Sams if you get a minute look at new chapter bone strength.... That is what i have been taking for years.... İ want to see what you think.
MaryRose Waller I think it is a good choice! For just a few dollars more you can get Garden of Life Raw Calcium on Amazon. The difference is that it has probiotics and enzymes in it and also raw fruits and veggies. As you get older the body no longer is able to digest and absorb the nutrients as well and probiotics and enzymes help to ensure that. Most diseases start in the gut and that is why what we eat is so important.
Yes I do take renew life probiotics 100 billion
judy I was just looking at my unsweetened almond milk… It has calcium carbonate in it. I drink about a cup a day. I wonder if that's really bad
Garden of Life raw calcium has so many other ingredients- I'm not keen on silica or strontium and I like taking my powder magnesium and getting boron from prunes, etc etc ; are there any other products with calcium from algae without all the other stuff?
Such small amounts of silica and strontium to be of any value
The strontium in it is derived from algae. It won't hurt you. All the other bone essential nutrients in it will help.
K2 prevents the artery problem.
