Calcium Carbonate supplements are taken by individuals who are unable to get enough calcium in their regular diet or who have a need for more calcium. They are used to prevent or treat several conditions that may cause hypocalcemia (not enough calcium in the blood). The body needs calcium to make strong bones. Calcium is also needed for the heart, muscles, and nervous system to work properly.
Please read all label information carefully on delivery and prior to use.
I had been using sodium bicarbonate for occasional heartburn, but wanted reduce sodium intake. Also did not like trading sodium for aluminum. Calcium carbonate seemed to be the best alternative - with the side benefit of providing dietary calcium.
