Newly Diagnosed! Want To Start Good Calcium Supplement, But Which One????

Being newly diagnosed with osteoporosis at 66, I’ve decided to try a good Calcium supplement first instead of meds (they all scare me). After researching online and reading here, it seems like the plant based calcium is the way to go, so I’m trying to decide between Aquaecal, Jarrow Bone-Up, Garden of Life Calcium Raw & OsteoMD. I don’t care about what they cost, I just want to start the one that is the best and has given others results. I’m having trouble figuring out which of the 4 is the… read more

I am on BoneUp (Jarrow). It is fairly well balanced. My doc said it's good, but must add vitamin K2, especially K2-MK 7, and also MK4. She said there is new research that shows that 600 CA is the optimal amount. Supposedly larger doses actually can hinder bone building. Also, of course, always try to get as much as you can in food. I'm working with diet, plus 1 serving of BoneUp a day. Keep researching to learn what is good for you!😀

Blessings to you too.

Hi Angie
My name is Cynthia. I started taking Bone powder and collagen HX from Invite health. Their supplements are pricey though. A good calcium supplement should included magnesium, Vitamin K2, Vitamin D3 and Cissus Quadrangularis I aslo order OsteMD from another company. I've been taking Vitamin D3 since the pandemic . If I alternate the Bone powder and the OsteMD I should get a good calcium bone building and strength combo. I also heard strontium is good for osteoporisis. I've been researching since I was diagnosed. I've learned you have to be you own advocate. I was prescribed Fosamax by my primary. Not going to take meds until I see an endocrinologist.

Hope to take to you again. Blessings
