    Too Much

    Can I take too much Calcium?

    Yes, you can. Consistently overdosing on Calcium normally leads to constipation, but can also cause diarrhea, headaches, nausea and vomiting.

    Taking too many Calcium supplements might also increase the risk of kidney stones, so try not to exceed 2.5g a day.


    Is getting Calcium from supplements the same as getting Calcium from food?

    Calcium in supplement form can cause gas, bloating, and constipation. It's best absorbed in small doses, and with food.

    It's generally better to get your Calcium from food, as it's more likely to be spread out, and packaged with its best friend Vitamin D!
