Re: how far apart should you take calcium supplements

Spread the pills out throught the day since the body can only absorb so much at a time and discards the rest it cant. I take 5 calcium pills -2 in the morning, one in theafternoon and 2 in the evening.

Re: how far apart should you take calcium supplements

the body can only absorb 400mg of calcium at a time
