There are several different supplements which contain calcium including calcium carbonate, calcium lactate, calcium gluconate, calcium lactate gluconate, calcium citrate, and calcium pyruvate. While each of these supplements does contain some part calcium, the amount of calcium found in each is dependent upon the absorption capabilities and concentrations of the other chemicals in the compound. Calcium citrate, containing about 21% calcium is higher up on the list than most in terms of overall calcium content, and has the most efficient absorption capabilities. When trying to select a calcium product thought, absorption rates are not the only factors that should be taken into account. Other important factors include solubility, bioavailability, cost, specific health conditions of the buyer, and any other drugs or supplements being taken by this individual that have the potential to interact with this supplement. Calcium citrate comes in the form of a vaguely tart salt-like compound made up of citric acid and calcium. It is used as an additive in food to impart that tart flavor into various dishes, aside from its main usage as a supplement with health benefits. It can also be used as a preservative and in order to soften water. Calcium citrate and calcium carbonate both contain calcium, but while calcium carbonate may be the most popularly used form of calcium supplement, this does not make it accessible to everyone. Calcium citrate is a perfect alternative to calcium carbonate for those that have weak or sensitive stomachs, or other gastrointestinal disorders, since the calcium carbonate is more likely to cause stomach upset when used. Calcium citrate may even be fully digested by people that have a gastric acid deficiency in their bodies.
