Do you need to take Vitamin D with Calcium?
Answer: Vitamin D helps regulate calcium concentration and helps to absorb and distribute calcium through your body and bones. It also regulates calcium deposits and removal from bone.
Should calcium be taken with a meal?
Answer: Many calcium supplements (especially calcium carbonate) is better absorbed with a meal. Your stomach needs sufficient acid production to help calcium to digest. Therefore by taking calcium with your meal, it will help to stimulate acid production which in turn will help with breaking down calcium to be absorbed by the body. As for Osteonorm Calcium Citrate it is formulated to be really gentle on your stomach acid, so you can take it with or without a meal.
Why do I need to take a calcium supplement?
Answer: Calcium is an important nutrient, particularly for teens as well as post-menopausal women and older men. In general, you need to consume three or more servings of calcium per day to meet the daily requirement. One serving would be approximately one cup of milk, cup of yogurt, or 3 slices of cheese. Which is not always possible in our everyday diets.
Why take calcium citrate versus calcium carbonate?
Answer: Calcium citrate is ideal for those who have decreased stomach acid because it doesn’t need stomach acid for absorption. People who have decreased stomach acid include those taking certain medications, the elderly, and those who have had bariatric surgery or stomach surgeries. In contrast, calcium carbonate needs to be taken with food and needs adequate stomach acid for absorption.
What is the amount of elemental calcium in your products?
Answer: The elemental amount of the calcium in our products is listed on the label for each Osteonorm.
What’s the best form of calcium to take?
Answer: Calcium citrate or malate is the best form. Most calcium supplements use calcium carbonate, which is very poorly absorbed. Calcium carbonate requires stomach acid for it to be dissolved and absorbed. As we age we naturally tend to produce less stomach acid. However, unlike other calcium supplements, calcium citrate and malate do not require an acid environment for calcium absorption. That’s why Osteonorm only contains calcium citrate/malate.
Will using supplements compensate for my poor diet?
Answer: No! While we believe that supplementation is an important part of an overall health program, it is just one part. There are many lifestyle factors involved in achieving optimal health, including:
1. Proper diet – including dietary supplements.
2. A regular exercise program.
3. Positive mental outlook.
4. Fresh, clean water.
5. Fresh air.
All of the above must be incorporated into an individuals lifestyle for optimal health and vitality.
