Calcium Citrate Powder Overview

Given our high nutritional requirement for calcium - most experts recommend 1000-1500 mg per day - it can take up to 4 large capsules or tablets just to get optimal levels of this one mineral alone. But since adequate calcium is so important to bone health, you don't want to skip calcium because of the inconvenience of swallowing capsules or tablets. NOW Foods has a great solution with their ultra-pure calcium citrate powder. Mixing NOW Calcium Citrate Powder into protein shakes or other drinks is a great way to get all the calcium you need without the hassles of tablets. When you use NOW Calcium Citrate Powder, you also circumvent any problems with tablets not breaking down completely, which is sometimes suspected when large, high-potency calcium tablets are used, especially those made by inferior drugstore or supermarket brands. You can also NOW Calcium Citrate Powder to close the gap between what you need and how much your multi provides.

Easier to take than chewables

Being post-gastric bypass I have to take a LOT of calcium: 2000 mg every morning. And it has to be calcium citrate, not calcium carbonate. That meant either ordering from special companies to get chewables I needed to eat 4 large chewables each day - spending a pretty penny - or choking down 8 HUGE uncoated tablets from Costco. EIGHT. Every day. I dont even have that much room in my new stomach for all those and the water needed to get them down. As I drink a protein drink every morning anyways, my surgeon tipped me off to this product. I can add one and a half tablespoons to my protien drink and be all set. I even found a 1 1/2 T scoop at Williams-Sonoma. :

Better than pills

It is much more palatable to stir a little calcium citrate into juice and drink it than to swallow the pills, especially when one takes a lot of vitamins and supplements!

Osteopenia??...add this supplement with weight lifting.

Osteopeniapremature bone loss, as a precurser to Osteoperosis runs in my family. At 35 years of age, a DEXA scan did show my bone density was below normal for my age. Add to the fact I have a spinal cord injury and have no movement below my waist, I needed to begin to increase my bone mass by any means without going to a prescription type Calcium. I began weight lifting and added this supplement. The next year at my annual physical, my bone density had increased. I cannot truely say this supplement is the sole reason for the bone density increase because long term studies have shown weight lifting exercises themselves increase bone mass. However, adding a calcium citrate supplement couldnt hurt, especially in todays world of low nutrient foods. I mix this in with my Whey Protein drink and/or Whey Protein smoothies with frozen organic fruit.
