Q. What is the best source of calcium?
Calcium citrate is a form of chelated calcium. Some studies indicate that calcium citrate is more bioavailable than calcium carbonate.
Nonetheless, the best evidence shows that leafy greens and sesame seeds are some of the best sources of calcium for adults of any age. Calcium supplementation, though often advocated for all post-menopausal women, is not nearly as effective for good bone health as eating a plant diet and getting regular weight-bearing exercise. The physicians at Weimar recommend using a bio-identical progesterone cream when a healthy diet and exercise program do not produce adequate bone health in post-menopausal ladies.
