are calcium supplements effective? Are there differnet types that I should know about? Can you use calcium on its own or do you have to get a combination supplement with vitamin d or magnesium?
I feel that they’re effective because my doctor has been recommending them for a long time. My doctor recommends a calcium and magnesium combination supplement and a separate 1000iu of vitamin D separately. I haven’t seen anything that says it wouldn’t work. It sstill seems to be what people are supposed to do to prevent osteoporosis. They’re cheap enough that I think it’s worth it to take the risk and go for it because the benefits are important.
Sure they are! I think the key is to get calcium carbonate instead of citrate. Ask your pharmacist to be sure
Why is calcium carbonate better than citrate? absorption?
