How To Reduce The Constipation Effect From Calcium Supplements


Mar 2, 2018
I’ve been taking about a gram of calcium carbonate a day from this brand:

I’m pretty sure it’s giving me constipation, Is there any way to reduce the constipation while taking it? If i can’t take this i have no idea how i’m going to get my calcium source.

Is this true of all calcium supplement types? i'm in the Uk so if anyone has any safe recommendations.

(Before any one says i absolutely cannot eat ANY form of dairy as it 100 % wrecks havoc on my eczema, I was eating lots of cheese before and that never gave me constipation).

You could try taking magnesium before/after the calcium and see if that helps, citrate, glycinate, or taurine forms :):
By the way prunes are very reliable for, err getting things moving.

Possible that you aren't absorbing this well hence the constipation.

You could try mixing the calcium with some white wine vinegar to form calcium acetate. It's highly absorbable so I'd go easy on the dosage. 600mg of calcium in this format is plenty on a daily basis.

Excellent! Thanks a lot for the suggestion

Yeah, magnesium will help relax the intestines which counteracts the seizing action of calcium.

I've been having better results with magnesium bicarbonate recently than the expensive pills I've tried over the years. Magnesium citrate, glycinate, and malate all had decent effect,
but this combination of magnesium hydroxide + carbonated water to make magnesium bicarbonate has given me the best results and is by far the cheapest, 2 minute video demonstration here:

You don't need the CO2 cartridges. Just buy carbonated water and add the mag-hydroxide to a plastic container during the mixing process.
