Calcium Supplements: You need to know the truth! A human adult requires between 15 and 30mg of food calcium per day. So why are people taking 1000mg of chalk (calcium carbonate)? Although numerous calcium salts are used worldwide, as people become more aware of conditions like osteoporosis, and the diminishing nutritional value of the average diet, the bioavailability of these products remains poor, and unsuited to human consumption. Certain salts are incompatible with many commonly used drugs. They are also associated with several uncomfortable side effects and some require to be taken with food to enable any absorption at all. It therefore makes sense to take a Calcium supplement within a food complex (foodstate) to increase Ca absorption rates, improve bioavailability, minimize side effects, and avoid incompatibilities. This also means there will be no harsh salts for the body to eliminate.
What are Vitamin supplements made from? Most vitamins in supplements are petroleum extracts, coal tar derivatives, chemically processed sugar and sometimes industrial fish oils, with chemicals like formaldehyde used to process them. Synthetic vitamins were originally developed because they cost less. Most synthetic supplements call their products 'vegetarian', not because they are from plants, but because they are not from animals. Foodstate supplements are made with food such as acerola cherries, alfalfa, carrots, corn, grapefruit, lemons, limes, nutritional yeast, oranges, rice bran, soy beans, and tangerines.
