Calcium carbonate should be taken with meals because it requires
stomach acid to dissolve and absorb.

Calcium carbonate has the most calcium per pill (40%), therefore fewer pills are needed. Some find calcium carbonate constipating. Calcium Carbonate is a dietary macromineral found in high amounts within dairy products, and to a lesser extent in
vegetables. Used primarily to support bone health, calcium also has a role in
maternal and cardiovascular health.

Since it’s imperative that your body needs calcium to build and maintain strong bones. Over 99% of the calcium in your body is stored in your bones and teeth. You might also consider calcium supplements if you:
Follow a vegan diet; Have a high-protein or high-sodium diet, which may cause your body to excrete more calcium; Have a health condition that limits your body’s ability to absorb
calcium, such as Crohn’s disease or inflammatory bowel disease; Are being treated with
corticosteroids over a long period of time; Have osteoporosis. Copper gluconate is sold as a
dietary supplement to provide copper. Copper gluconate is the copper salt of D-gluconic acid. It is an
odourless light blue or blue-green crystal or powder which is easily soluble in water and insoluble in
ethanol. Vitamin D enhances calcium absorption, so make sure to get 400 to 800 international units (IU)
of vitamin D per day.
