    Best calcium supplement for osteopenia

    Im 73, female, and drop ever so slightly on each Dexa Scan done every other yr. . Am currently taking Bone Strength by New Chapter, a plant based source of calcium, 770mg. Is this enough? Other product suggestions? Thanks.

    No, it is probably not enough. My doctor has me on 1500 mgs of Calcium Carbonate along with 1000 ius of D3.... I also have osteopenia.

    Check with your GP...

    May I ask if you are on HRT? My rheumatologist swears that the improvement in my scans from -1.6 to -1 is due to HRT.
