I was wondering if anyone takes any kind of calcium other than the typical supplements: citrate, caltrate, etc.
I have not read much, but I read somewhere that excess calcium could increase strokes, heart attacks and accumulate in joints.
I try to eat all my calcium from my food, but it has become a challenge.
I have been having serious cramps in my leg that hurt a lot. In fact, I had one a couple of nights ago, and my leg’s calf hurt still. Apparently, leg camps can be cause by salt, potassium, calcium or any mineral deficiency.
Anyone taking natural calcium supplement? Knows what else can cause leg cramps?
I have an appointment with my PCP in a couple of weeks.
