Calcium Tips

Here are a few essential calcium tips to increase your Calcium IQ and make sure you get the maximum benefit from your calcium supplement.


Bioavailability

Bioavailability refers to the amount of calcium in the supplement that can be absorbed by the digestive system to provide the desired health benefits. Calcium products with low bioavailability fail to deliver the calcium you expect from a supplement. Creamy Bites with calcium citrate has unsurpassed bioavailability.

Absorbability

Calcium absorbs best when taken in doses of 500 mg or less. It is important to spread out calcium intake from foods and supplements. For best absorption take no more than 500 mg of calcium at one time. If you need more calcium, split intake into two or more doses and take them 4 hours apart. Do not exceed 2,500 mg of calcium per day.

Why You Need Vitamin D

Vitamin D enhances calcium absorption, so make sure to get 400 to 800 international units (IU) of vitamin D per day. Each Creamy Bite contains 400 IU of Vitamin D3 in addition to 500 mg of elemental calcium citrate.
