Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog ran from 2006 to 2016 and was intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    Calculate your intake of calcium

    As reported here earlier, 4 decades of research support recommending that older people take “minimum doses of 1200 mg of calcium, and 800 IU of vitamin D (for combined calcium plus vitamin D supplementation).”

    InformedHealthOnline lets you can calculate your intake of calcium, and make adjustments if needed.

    It included recommendations for…

    • Adult women/men
    • Menopausal women
    • Men above 65 years old

    Of course, regardless of the daily dose, you have to continue to take your calcium for it to be of value.
