    Can you take too much calcium? I know with vitamin C it just goes straight through you but I have no idea about calcium.

    What is the maximum someone should take in a day?

    It says "pregnant women need as much as 1,500 mg per day"

    The suppliments I am taking have:

    2 x per day of 59mg Calcium (within a pregnancy multi vitamin)
    4 x per day of cacium amino acid chelate 500mg (equiv to elemental calcium 100mg), clcium carbonate 375mg (equiv to elemntal calcium 150mg) - Also has magnasium in it but didn't list them

    So I count 1118mg within the suppliments alone. Just wanting to make sure that I it can't hurt

    Vitamin C = vitamin
    Calcium = mineral

    Too much/little of any mineral can throw your body out of balance, fucks shit up. If you're a little over, little under, u should be okay though.

    They tell us we need more calcium so we don't get osteo when we are older and then we find out all this extra calcium is what makes us moody... We can't win!!1

    I don't believe their is much of a correlation between calcium dietary intake and bone mineral density.

    This is why most dairy companies are putting a new spin on mlik or dairy as a way to aid weight loss.

    moderate intensity loading of the bones with physical activity will do the most to increase bone density.
