Contrary to what you may have heard, most people actually are getting the recommended amount of calcium…and those who take calcium supplements often take way too much. Find out whether you need a calcium supplement and how much you should be taking in this week’s show.

There is bad link for the entry titled “Are you taking too much calcium?” If you click on the link labeled “in this week’s show”, it tries to take you to this page: “http://http//nutritiondiva.quickanddirtytips.com/are-you-getting-enough-calcium.aspx”. But there is an extra “http//” in the URL. If you remove those extra characters, then the link will work fine.
Good catch, John, and thanks for bringing it to my attention. Should be working now!
I’ve wondered about calcium supplementation and I don’t think there’s any real benefit to it. I think osteoporosis at an old age is much more influenced by Vitamin D status than calcium.
