I just made me some bone broth and ate about 200 grams worth of very soft lamb bones, they were so good I couldn't stop eating, almost like little crackers. I am still craving them right now. Anyways I was wondering if anyone knew how much calcium there is bone or bone broth, to get a better idea of how much I am consuming.
Bones contain more minerals than just calcium, they also contain silica, magnesium, boron, phosphorus...plus probably other minerals that I can't bring to mind right now...so don't assume it's the calcium that is making them taste so good to you. At any rate, I would think that you can trust your body on this, but make sure you chew them very well.
Calcium does not neutralize stomach acid. It is the "carbonate" part of calcium carbonate that neutralizes stomach acid, found in some antacids. Calcium, in it's ionized form, is actually a stimulus for stomach acid because the proton pumps are calcium-gated. The proton pumps have a receptor that ionized calcium (Ca++) sits on, causing the proton pumps to secrete positively charged hydrogen ions, ie, acid (H+). That is the irony of taking calcium based antacids.
