  1. I'm a big fan of the work that Consumer Labs does. What works, what doesn't, which supplements are best, what form, and best brands. It saves me a lot of mistakes, worth every penny to subscribe. Not affiliated in any way – just a great service.

  2. Thanks for this important information on calcium. A question for Dr. Cooperman: do you consider calcium-fortified foods (e.g. orange juice, non-dairy milk) to be calcium supplements? If so, then should their consumption be limited to 1000 mg. also? I'm lactose intolerant and really need to know -:)

  3. You state that magnesium should not be taken with calcium. Yet everyone says it's best to get their calcium from food. Isn't magnesium naturally present along with calcium in food?

  4. I am 78 yrs. born and raised in England., little sun. Live in Utah. Have osteoporosis. Slid on carpeted stairs July 2016. Broke shattered femur, left wrist. Still nor healed . Now using a walker. My recent C-Reactive Protein test result 48.27. Off the charts. My bones hurt a lot. Daily therapy. Walk a lot with walker. I don't take calcium because of risks of stroke. Mother died of. Eat organic greens, some cheese, drink cashew milk! Organic protein. Don't eat soybeans because old hypothyroid. Trying a fibromyalgia diet. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you for a great website. JAne

  5. I'd like Dr. Cooperman to address this downside of calcium citrate (actually any citrate): it greatly increases the absorption of dietary aluminum.

  6. Our stomachs don't contain water, so I don't understand why you test disintegration in a water solution?

  7. In my opinion, one of the most reliable, honest review sites online. I have carefully followed their research and testing results for years and trust their testing

  8. I have some questions for Dr.Cooperman. Between Calcium Citrate and Calcium Carbonate, which of these two has a better absorption for a teenager like me and does it make you taller, I'm 15 turning 16 and which of these two better absorb with MK7? Do i need to drink MK7 supplement while taking Calcium supplement? How many tablet of Calcium should i take for a day? Should i drink milk or eat yogurt and are there any other type of food i shouln't eat while taking Calcium supplement?

  9. Hello, Sorry this is late but I hope you can answer my question. I am at risk for Osteoporosis. What about taking lactase tablets to better absorb calcium from dairy?

  11. dairy is bad for our health on so many levels …natural hormones,added hormones,antibiotics , pasteurization, they feed the cows GMO soy and corn … one of the worst advise is dairy for calcium.. sesame seeds have allot of calcium ….and calcium carbonate is not good for us here is why : https://youtu.be/hLP3SnbQvEc

  12. Probably the problem is that Americans consume too much acid producing foods like meat, sodas, alcohol, grains, that rob the body of calcium. Maybe, eat less meat or no meat, no sodas, no alcohol, fermented grains, more fresh fruits and vegetables. And maybe small amounts of calcium supplements with lemon juice to help absorption.

  13. CALCIUM SUPPLEMENTS ANOTHER BIG LIE. IN THE 1950'S THE DAIRYMENS ASSOCIATION PAID FOR A STUDY ON CALCIUM IN COWS MILK, AND THEY PAID THE PEOPLE MAKING THE STUDY TO LIE ABOUT THE HIGH AMOUNTS OF CALCIUM NEEDED IN YOU DIET. THIS WAS DONE IN ORDER TO PUSH COW MIK PRODUCTS ON THE PUBLIC. LATER INDEPENENT STUDIES PROVED WITH OUT A DOUBT THAT ONE GETS ENOUGH CALCIUM FROM PRODUCE TO SUPPLY THE BODY. THERE ARE ONLY 2 KINDS OF MILK ADDAQUATE FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION: GOAT & HUMAN MILK, AND AFTER A CHILD HAS BEEN WEINED THERE'S NO ADDITIONAL MILK CONSUMPTION NEEDED. PLENTY OF EVIDENCE ON YOUTUBE.

  14. I'm about to be 50 this August and I don't take calcium but I do take vitamin D3 2000 IU's a day. I am postmenopausal and have osteopenia. I would like to know what kind of calcium I should take . I will appreciate your answer.

  15. Thank you. This is a great tutorial. I personally heard from a friend about a calcium supplement and after reading about it I decided to give it a try, and it certainly helped. It is called amorphous calcium, and its uniqueness is that it is amorphous rather than crystalline, which allows it to be better absorbed into the body.
