At Loblaw’s Superstore today, I was looking for a good price on calcium supplements. Jamieson’s was a good deal but the calcium tablets were combined with vitamin D. I already have vitamin D tablets, so I nearly passed up the sale priced combo tablets. Then a light bulb went off, and I bought them.
Here’s what i thought…..I have 1000 IU Vit. D tabs which I can score and cut in half. So I take one calcium tab plus half Vitamin D tab to deliver 700 IU Vit. D and 650 mg Calcium, a perfect compliment to my dietary intake. It’s important to take the Vitamin D together with calcium to maximize absorption into your system.
I have been diagnosed with osteopenia and aim for a daily intake of 1000 IU Vit D plus 1500 mg Calcium.
