Calcium Gluconate is essentially just a synthesis of calcium and gluconic acid.

There are a few different compounds which contain calcium, and these are calcium carbonate, calcium gluconate, calcium pyruvate, and calcium lactate gluconate. While each does provide calcium, the amounts of elemental calcium within each vary considerably. For example, calcium carbonate has 40% calcium while calcium citrate only has 21%. Calcium L-Lactate has 13% which is more than calcium gluconate which only has 9% calcium content. This plays a major role in the decision about which one to purchase, however it must be kept in mind that this is only one factor which may affect your purchase. Other things to take into account are absorption rates, bioavailability, reactions with other drugs or supplements, height and weight of the user and even flavor or taste.

Directions

Serving Size & Timing

It is recommended by the FDA that calcium be taken in installments of 1000mg per serving once or twice per day for adults. Those that are pregnant or nursing should take 1300mg, children over 4 years old should take 800mg while infants need take only 600mg. It is recommended that this supplement be taken with meals. Calcium gluconate is made up of about 13% calcium meaning that a serving size of 4300mg will yield about 50% of the daily calcium value. This means two servings of this size should be taken per day.

Calcium Gluconate Side Effects

No serious side effects are associated with calcium supplements, still side effects may be experienced with overdose, including stomach upset, nausea, irregular heartbeat, headaches, and increased frequency of urination. Those that have medical conditions or are taking medication which alters the body’s ability to absorb calcium correctly are cautioned from taking this supplement as it may exacerbate the condition or change the effectiveness of the drug. It is also worthy of note that taking this drug may inhibit the body’s ability to absorb the particular antibiotic tetracycline.

Calcium Gluconate Bioavailability

Since calcium is most effective when taken with vitamin D, it is recommended that calcium gluconate be consumed with a source of vitamin D or vitamin d supplement if possible. This increases the absorption rate. Of all of the forms of calcium supplements, calcium gluconate is by far one of the most soluble in liquids and oils.
