Once again we are warned of the dangers of calcium supplements. Once again those studies cited prescribed supplements without regard to total calcium intake, including diet. What matters is total calcium intake, including diet.
I prescribe a lot of Calcium Citrate for my patients. I would prefer not to. Dietary Calcium is more easily digested than supplements, and appears to hold fewer dangers than Calcium Carbonate or other calcium supplements. Unfortunately, we have lost our taste for calcium rich foods. There are tasty choices.
Aunt Henrietta will be getting delicious, premium dark chocolate for Christmas again this year. She gets the same for Easter and her August birthday. Not often that an 88 year old gets something she desires and needs as a gift. Because of her lactose intolerance and intolerance of all calcium pills, she needs this gift.
Henrietta needs to get enough Calcium if she is to Take Control Naturally. That is very challenging with her sensitivities to milk, soy milk, cheses, calcium carbonate pills, calcium citrate, calcium maleate, calcium gluconate, etc. Adora works.
Adora Premium Chocolate Calcium Supplement often works where others have not. It is delicious! The calcium is so finely ground that is undetectable. So finely ground that Aunt Henrietta digests it despite her Nexium. It is dessert in just 30 calories.
Recently I had a patient whose spine had lost 10% of its Bone Mineral Density (BMD) since her last DXA. She has lost height in the last year. She has 3 new Vertebral Compression Fractures on her VFA. At 61 she is literally falling apart. She has severe osteoporosis. Her medical history form tells why.
She does not consume milk, or yogurt, or cheese, or calcium fortified orange juice or any veggies with Calcium in them. She will not take Calcium pills or even Calcium -rich Adora Premium Chocolates. She simply cannot have good bone health without some source of Calcium. She had me stymied……..until she admitted she liked Gummies!
