What Is The Best Time To Take Calcium

tablets?

The best time to take calcium tablets is between meals. That’s because most people eat and drink throughout the day, and that can lead to low levels of calcium in your blood (called hypocalcaemia), which means you need more. And if you don’t get enough calcium for a while, it may affect your bones — just as too much sugar or salt can do with cells in other parts of your body. You should also avoid taking large amounts at any one time, as this might increase the risk of side effects such as stomach cramps, diarrhoea or constipation.
