How to Take Calcium Supplements for the Best Absorption

Peter Bua Calcium and Bone Health Leave a Comment

Calcium is crucial for your overall health. In addition to strengthening bones and teeth, calcium plays an important role in nerve signal transmission, hormone release, muscle contraction, blood vessel function, and blood clotting. Although important for all stages of life, children and seniors must ensure proper calcium intake. This is because calcium assists with bone development and helps prevent osteoporosis later in life.

Calcium is generally obtained through the consumption of dairy products such as cheese, yogurt, and milk. In fact, one 8-ounce cup of low fat yogurt contains 415 mg of calcium. Unfortunately, a busy lifestyle, allergies, and lactose intolerance prevent millions of Americans from getting the calcium they need. A high quality calcium supplement can help ensure adequate calcium intake.

FitFormula is safe for both children and adults. This tasteless powder is easier to take than tablets and pills and is designed for quick absorption by the body. FitFormula is also available in a delicious blueberry flavor.

Everyone should make sure they get enough calcium. There are a few things you can do to ensure optimal absorption by the body.

Take With Food

In order to maximize absorption of calcium, take calcium supplements with food. FitFormula is completely tasteless. You can add it to smoothies, scrambled eggs, oatmeal, or other soft foods. The powder spreads and dissolves quickly and makes getting enough calcium easy.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D enables your body to absorb calcium by allowing it to enter the bloodstream. Low levels of vitamin D are associated with decreased levels of both calcium and phosphorus, increasing the chance of brittle or deformed bones.

FitFormula contains both vitamin D and calcium. This combination ensures efficient absorption by the body. It also provides the vitamin D you require.

Powder vs. Pills

Your body uses a lot of energy to break down pills or tablets. Many people also find pills difficult to swallow. FitFormula powder absorbs more rapidly than calcium tablets. Quick absorption means that calcium is available when your body needs it.

FitFormula Classic Calcium + Vitamin D mixes into liquid or food. Our Blueberry-Flavored Calcium + Vitamin D is direct dissolve, meaning it dissolves quickly when poured directly on the tongue. These products completely eliminate the problems associated with swallowing pills.

Take 500 mg Twice a Day

It’s recommended that adults take 1000mg of calcium a day. However, calcium absorbs better when taken in two doses of 500 mg each. Split your FitFormula powder into two servings for best absorption. The top of the packet folds and closes for easy storage. Once open, the powder maintains full potency for several days.

FitFormula believes that everyone should get enough calcium. This is why we’ve developed our products to be easy to use. Our calcium powders absorb quickly, allowing you to get the most out of your calcium supplement with little to no effort on your part.
