How to Keep Your Calcium Levels Up
When most people think of calcium deficiency, the top things that come to mind are osteoporosis and bone fractures. But your body uses calcium daily in nail, teeth, bone, and heart functions.
All of that needs to be replenished, or you’ll deplete calcium levels from your teeth and bones.
How to Keep Up Your Calcium
There are two main ways to augment your diet with oral calcium supplements: Calcium carbonate and calcium citrate. Calcium carbonate can be hard on your stomach and can cause constipation. Calcium citrate, which is often used as a food additive, but can also be taken as a supplement is easier on your stomach and intestinal tract and can even protect your kidneys from kidney stones.
Why Frunutta Does Not Have Calcium
The main reason we do not have calcium in our line is that it requires a large volume per tablet which makes the tablet too large to place under the tongue and also in case of Calcium carbonate it requires the acid environment of the stomach to absorb.
Since Frunutta’s vitamins and supplements are all under-the-tongue, our products never actually make it to your stomach. For most vitamins, this is the ideal situation. But that’s not the case with Calcium. That being said, we recommend looking for Calcium citrate pills and suggest you take them in two divided doses daily to improve calcium absorption.
Other Ways to Improve Calcium Absorption
Simply taking calcium supplements isn’t enough to make sure the calcium gets absorbed into your bloodstream. You’ll need Vitamin D as well. Taking Vitamin D3 at the same time as calcium is one of the only ways to ensure that calcium is absorbed from the intestinal tract.
Many calcium pills are sold already combined with Vitamin D3. However, taking the combined pills can often lessen the effectiveness of Vitamin D3. Vitamin K2, when taken in addition to calcium and Vitamin D3, will maximize the amount of calcium that makes it into your bones and teeth.
