How much calcium should you take if you have osteoporosis?
12 Oct 2009
basically you can only absorb only about 500-600 mg a time- thus if you do take calcium in some form - and are trying to achieve 1500 mg a day - take in three dosages with meals-consider having your supplement include vitamin D if possible
