Calcium requires nutrients that aid and enhance it. Some of these, like vitamins C and D contained in Protector ONCCOR®, should be taken with food; while others contained in CALCOR®, like silicon, potassium bicarbonate, boron, threonine, magnesium, and lysine, should be taken with calcium at bedtime or on an empty stomach.
Regular exercise and a healthy diet with enough calcium helps teen and young adult white and Asian women maintain good bone health and may reduce their high risk of osteoporosis later in life. Adequate calcium intake is important, but daily intakes above about 2,000 mg. are not likely to provide any additional benefit.
Most Americans consume 500 mg calcium daily. However, US RDA recommends 1500 mg per day for those over 50; 1000 mg for those under 50.
Dairy products, the chief source of calcium, have too much fat and are allergenic (mucous production, skin problems) for most people no matter what the fat content, even skim.
Soft drinks flush calcium from bones. High amounts of phosphates in soft drinks leave the body and force calcium out also, even if calcium must be stolen from bones
Supplements made from bone meal or dolomite often have cadmium, which increases blood pressure.
CALCOR® should be taken at bedtime or on an empty stomach.
CALCOR® is the safest, easiest, and most medically sound way to obtain calcium: 3 tablets for those over age 50; otherwise, 2 tablets at bedtime.
