Calcium Absorption: How to absorb 100% of the calcium?

It is generally common knowledge that the products that contain the highest amounts of calcium levels arent always absorbed completely due to many different factors such as phosphate, vitamin D levels, fiber, and lactose. The highest source for calcium remains in dairy products, but it is said that only 30% of the calcium in dairy products is actually absorbed, yet there is also conflicting information regarding the source whose bioavailibility is the highest.

For anyone with knowledge on this issue, what do you regard as fact regarding calcium absorption, which source bioavailibility is the highest, and how is it possible to absorb 100% of the calcium from a source at a given time?

There are other considerations, for example, the more calcium you consume, the more magnesium you will need. I, personally don't think taking huge amounts of calcium is that great for one's health. In addition, I've read that calcium carbonate supplements can worsen depression in folks. I think it would be fine, though to have one container of yogurt a day.
