Initially, six calcium salts, tricalcium phosphate, monocalcium phosphate, calcium carbonate, calcium lactate, calcium citrate
malate, and Calci K[R], were added to coffee, and the beverages were prepared with paper filters.
Study medication dosages with each meal were 30 mL Phoslyra (667 mg calcium acetate per 5 mL), six PhosLo Gelcaps (667 mg calcium acetate/Gelcap), and five-5 calcium citrate
caplets (950 mg calcium citrate
/caplet), resulting in a daily dose of 90 mL Phoslyra and 18 PhosLo Gelcaps.
But if you take your calcium supplement with a meal, there's no significant difference between calcium carbonate and calcium citrate
pills," notes Robert Recker, director of the Osteoporosis Research Center at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska.
Pure calcium citrate
powder is inexpensive and easy to use.
In this study, the source of fortification was calcium citrate
in reason of its bioavailability, compatibility with iron sources and sensory properties.
Magnesium citrate and calcium citrate
are well known to have higher bioavailability than other compounds in their category.
(in Citrical or Solgar) contains less elemental calcium but tends to be better tolerated.
Citracal UltraDense calcium citrate
has been cited in numerous clinical studies for its optimal solubility and proven ability to help stop bone loss.
Generally, lithium heparin is added in small quantities and has been found to have little, if any, effect on the determination of many different analytes, in contrast to calcium chelator anticoagulants, such as calcium citrate
or calcium oxalate.
Other forms of calcium used in fortification include calcium citrate
, calcium gluconate and calcium lactate.
Supplements of calcium citrate
are well tolerated and less likely to cause constipation than calcium carbonate, and less likely to cause indigestion than calcium chloride.
