Before a meal, after a meal, during a meal, instead of a meal? Which calcium?

Women with a normal calcium blood level shouldn't worry, they are getting enough calcium; true? Maybe. It is true that for hearts to beat and muscles to contract we need that normal blood level. But if your body's stores are low you will just mobilize that calcium out of your bones into your blood stream. So a blood test cannot determine if calcium is being leached from your bones at a higher than normal rate. So the RDAs are important. Most of us need the amount in our RDA to assure that our bones won't be unduly stressed for spare calcium. Have you noticed there are a fair number of choices on any random pharmacy shelf when it comes to calcium. And yes, some are not absorbed well if you don't have with a meal. Read labels. You will be better informed if you do!
