Liquid Calcium thoughts

I have been fighting Osteoporosis for 7 years without the use of prescription drugs. I first was diagnosed after my daughter was born and was still nursing her. I was 43. I eliminated inhaled steroids for asthma and began an exercise program. My bone density improved a lot to the total surprise of my Osteo doctor. I can't remember the exact numbers but the difference was 11% in my spine. I got to the point where they were not hounding me to take medication. I have now gone through menopause and at my last appointment I have slipped. I am still not where I was but not good. -3.1% in my spine. After a long conversation with the doctor I left without a prescription and a wait and see conclusion. I tried Fosomax after I finished nursing my daughter and had major muscle skeletal side effects after one weekly pill so that drug family is not an option.

I decided to try liquid calcium and found Blue Bonnet with mag. After a week I realized that the mag in it was giving me diarrhea. I think that the liquid calcium is a good idea and I think that the amount calcium (1200 MG) is good and the amount of mag (600 mg) is good. I was taking mag before but only 250 mg and not the same type, Oxide versus Citrate..

Does anyone have any advice? I have been dealing with this so long and thought that I was making good progress. I need to make a radical change and check in a year to see if I made any positive impact.

Re: Liquid Calcium thoughts

Do you take the calicum all at once? I think the body can only absorb about 500 mg at once. I am currently spreading taking out the calcium, magnesium and D3 4 times during the day

Re: Liquid Calcium thoughts

A buffered chelated magnesium will not cause any gut problems, even in higher amounts, but you would probably have difficulty finding chelated magnesium in combination with calcium in a liquid, if liquid is your wont.

No, I take it twice a day which would be 600mg of calcium and 300 of mag. twice a day. I can try three but I think four would be difficult to maintain.

Thank you for the suggestion may be that will help.

Re: Liquid Calcium thoughts

maybe you can try BonSweet (you can find it on Amazon)- it is a sweetener fortified with calcium and vitamin D, and if you sweeten your coffe/tea, you can just use it instead and get some calcium with it. it has a lower quantity of calcium, so you will have to drink few caps a day, but I think apsorption is better anyway in smaller quantities.
you will have to take the mg seperatly if you choose to try this.
