How much calcium should I be taking?
Based on typical dietary averages, women obtain about 750 mg per/day of calcium and men 975 mg per day of calcium in their diet. Adding in a full daily dosage of the CellSentials brings most adults with a typical diet to a safe and adequate range somewhere around 1,050 mg – 1,250 mg. The Active Calcium optimizer is most appropriate for people avoiding dairy or with poor calcium intake, or those at much higher risk of osteoporosis. It can be added in increments of 200 mg of calcium per tablet, to help bring the calcium obtained from all sources (diet and supplements) up to the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for that individual.
