Strong Bones need Calcium, DO YOU KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CALCIUM CARBONATE AND CALCIUM CITRATE?

Calcium citrate provides 40% of the elemental calcium absorbed, and calcium citrate provides 20% absorbed calcium. Calcium citrate however, is absorbed better in the elderly population who have decreased stomach acid because it doesnt require stomach acid for absorption as does calcium carbonate. Coral calcium is calcium carbonate. Too much caffeine and sodium in the diet will increase the calcium loss in the urine, so beware of your sodium and caffeine intake if trying to build or maintain bones density.
