A Calcium Study for Women: Powder vs. Pill

If you are a woman, it’s increasingly important to make sure your lifestyle habits support your bone health. Even those most diligent about a calcium-rich diet are probably not be getting the recommended daily amount. This is why it’s smart to rely on supplements like calcium pills or powders like Fit Formula Cal-EZ Calcium + Vitamin D. But which is more effective? Calcium pills or powders? Before we discuss the calcium study we conducted, let's take a look at why it's important for women to take supplements.

Why Take Supplements?

A CRN study shows that 46 percent of U.S. adults use supplements for health and wellness benefits. An additional 30 percent reported that they use supplements to fill nutrient gaps in their diet. Supplements are a good option if you aren’t sure if you’re getting the nutrients you need through your diet. Do your research (and talk to your doctor, if needed) before you start taking any supplements. Using too much of supplement can negatively affect your health and is a step in the wrong direction.

Many people think that osteoporosis is a part of aging, but great strides have been made in the prevention and detection of the disease. The sooner you get serious about getting enough calcium on a daily basis, the more you decrease your chance of getting osteoporosis.

A Calcium Study: Pills Vs. Powders

We recently conducted a calcium study of twenty-four women between the ages of 25-45 years old that compared the differences in absorption between calcium pills versus powders. We also looked at how supplements are taken and if users are more likely to stick to a supplement routine if they have to take something once or twice a day. Spoiler alert - people are more likely to stick with supplements if they get the intended benefits in a single serving.
