Jacob Teitelbaum, Integrative Medicine, answeredDon't take calcium supplements unless they have vitamin D, magnesium and vitamin K in them as well. Calcium supplements were shown in a recent review to markedly increase heart attack risk, with modest osteoporosis benefit. Another review shows that a low-cost and safe mineral called strontium (340-680 mg a day) was 170% as effective as the medication Fosamax, and without the side effects!
