My favorite calcium supplement –

What is the best way to supplement with calcium? Can calcium supplementation be dangerous?

The likelihood that you’re going to hurt yourself with calcium supplementation is very small. However, some newer research would argue that taking high doses of calcium without Vitamin K and without magnesium could be potentially problematic for a person, as well.

Carbonate is really bulky, so it comes in these massive horse pills, but your body doesn’t absorb it very well.

So, calcium hydroxyapatite is another form, and it’s a bone matrix supplement, and generally speaking, the pill size is reduced to a certain extent; not quite as huge of a pill, although they still are pretty big pills.

Calcium orotate is good at getting inside the cell; whereas calcium citrate is good at getting absorbed through the GI tract, good at getting into your bloodstream; orotate is really good in getting inside your cells.

Calcium hydroxyapatite, calcium citrate, calcium malate, calcium orotate; preferably always taken in a two to one calcium-magnesium ratio, and preferably taken with Vitamin K. And when I say taken with Vitamin K – Vitamin K is necessary to push calcium into the cell.

You’re going to have a hard-pressed time hurting yourself with food, if the food fits a definition of what real food is.

If we’re talking about a therapeutic dose: 1,000 to 1,200 milligrams of calcium per day. There are some tribal cultures that generally thrive largely on milk, and their dietary intake of calcium is 5,000 plus milligrams a day, and in that culture, we don’t really see any signs or symptoms of calcium toxicity.

But where I would say you’ve got to be careful and be cautious: if you’ve got a kidney disorder and there could be a problem with your kidney not properly absorbing, re-absorbing or letting go of calcium appropriately.

Additionally to that, pay attention to lethargy; if taking calcium makes you really tired and makes you feel really, really foggy, it’s probably not for you.

You should follow up with your nephrologist or your kidney doc before you are taking heavy levels of electrolyte-based supplements..
