What Is Your Favourite Calcium (and Supporting Vitamins And Minerals) And Why?

What Is Your Favourite Calcium (and Supporting Vitamins And Minerals) And Why?

I've been taking Algaecal (the non mail order one, so no strontium). And then Vitamin K in my Vitamin D. But I've been thinking of trying calcium citrate alongside Lorna Vanderhaeghe's Bone Booster. I do suffer from constipation so not sure if I can handle the calcium citrate or not.

Many thanks,
Wendy

Calcium supplements cause constipation for me and since I have had issues with this due to a bowel obstruction surgery, as well as IBS with fibromyalgia, more of that issue I really don't need. Is there any calcium product that is less constipating? I do take 3000mg vit D and 200 mg Magnesium daily and eat a lot of calcium rich foods.
