Yes. In most cases, food based vitamins and minerals are more absorbable than supplements because the food based nutrients exist as part of a food complex. In other words, they are contained within a matrix of proteins, fats and carbohydrates;... (more)

Forget about the RDA. It's based on a high-phytate, low vitamin D diet and results in the calcification of soft tissues (and fails to prevent osteoporosis) in SAD-eaters because they don't eat enough K2. For those of us who do eat enough K2... (more)

IMO the vitamin D is low, however I guess it depends on how much sun a day you get, if you are in an office all day I would increase your intake to 4000-5000iu. Or go get your Vitamin D measured and supplement accordingly. According to "The... (more)

Do not take calcium supplement. 8-10k Vitamin D will bost your calcium absorption at microvili level and reduce calcium filtering at kidney level. You need to supplement K2, 100mcg MQ7 and up to 1mg MQ4. You also need to supplement Mg, 6mg/kg. (more)

I'm not an expert or anything but i'd guess you're bit overboard on the Calcium dosage. Don't forget that, for calcium to be absorbed, you also need Vitamin D. Vitamin K also plays an important role in directing calcium to the right spots. (more)

I intend to use eggshells to make my own calcium supplement. I read somewhere that eggshells submerged in acetic acid yield calcium acetate. Is this true? And if so, would submerging them in lemon juice eventually yield calcium citrate?

You can add them to a working Bone Broth with a bit of Vinegar, and the calcium you seek will go into the soup that you drink.
