**Just so you'll know CALCIUM is difficult....To quote Doc:
Now a lot of my patients say, “Look, Doc, I have been taking 2000mg calcium everyday for 20 years, cause I knew it was good for me, yet I still have hypertension, insomnia, loose teeth, receding gums, low back problems, bone spurs, kidney stones, arthritis, osteoporosis, all the stuff you say I shouldn’t have. I’ve been taking 2000mg calcium everyday”. I said “Well what kind do you take?” He said “I take calcium gluconate, calcium citrate, calcium lactate, oyster shell, eggshell, I take things like Tums.” I said “Well, there’s your problem. If you take 1000mg calcium lactate, for example, you’re not getting 1000mg of calcium, cause 86%, 860mg is lactose, or milk sugar. Only 14%, or 140mg is metallic or elemental calcium, and let’s use 10% for usability factors, a fair number, plus it’s easy math, 10% of 140mg is 14. So if you take 2 of those calcium lactate tablets, each 1000mg, you’re not getting 2,000mg of calcium, you’re getting 2 times 14, or 28 mg. To get 2000mg of calcium from these 1000mg calcium lactate tablets, you would have to take 30 of those with each meal. Almost a full 100 tablet bottle of these calcium lactate tablets a day. And of course, at $5 a bottle for the cheapest one, you’re looking at $150 per month just for calcium. You’ve 59 more minerals to go, 16 vitamins, 12 essential amino acids, 3 essential fatty acids, so this is not an economical way to get your nutrients as elemental minerals. Also, if you took in 90 tablets of anything a day, you’re going to develop what we call B&F disease. B&F disease stands for belching and farting. You’re going to sound like an elephant out in the woods with a horrible gastro-intestinal problem. And of course you know you have B&F disease when your spouse has to throw a canary in the bathroom to know if it is safe to go in there.
