Calcium Gluconate Powder
- Maintains healthy bone and bone growth
- Neutralizes harmful molecules in the body

Calcium Gluconate is a synthesis of Calcium and Gluconic Acid. It is classified as a Calcium Salt, meaning that it is soluble in water. The compound is notably not as chalky as some other Calcium supplements.
Health Benefits Provided By Calcium Gluconate
It is essential to maintain high levels of Calcium in order for the body to function properly. Osteoporosis is the result of deficiency. Whenever levels of Calcium have hit a low, the compound will actually be extracted from the bones to redistribute throughout the body in an attempt to level out. Processes such as blood clotting and nerve impulse transmission need to be fueled by Calcium in order to operate properly. Calcium is also helps strengthen bones and can neutralize generally harmful molecules in the body.
Calcium may be most closely associated with its potent effect on bone growth and maintenance. However, it can help in a lot of other areas too, including the prevention of staining on teeth, as well as strengthening bones to the point that it can help prevent strains or breaks. Keeping up good Calcium levels from an early age is essential to reap the full benefits this mineral can provide over a lifetime.
Serving Size & Timing
The FDA suggests that Calcium be taken in installments of 1000mg per serving, once or twice per day for adults. Those who are pregnant or nursing should take 1300mg, children over 4 years old should take 800mg and 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, but minor side effects may be experienced with overdose, including stomach upset, nausea, irregular heartbeat, headaches and increased frequency of urination. Those who have medical conditions or are taking medications which alter the body’s ability to absorb Calcium are cautioned from taking this supplement, as it may exacerbate the condition or change the effectiveness of the drug. This supplement may inhibit the body’s ability to absorb the particular antibiotic tetracycline.
It is recommended that Calcium Gluconate be taken with Vitamin D supplements or in Vitamin D-rich juices, since this will increase its effectiveness and maximize its absorption. Of all of the forms of Calcium supplements, Calcium Gluconate is by far one of the most soluble in liquids and oils.
One of the largest sources of Calcium is in dairy, with just one small serving of dairy containing about 300mg, or 1/4 of the total daily value for Calcium. However, Calcium is also found in many other natural sources such as seaweed, nuts, legumes and quinoa.
My application of focused use is in my modified version of the old, "Fortified Pep Up," drink formula, featuring an updated, wiser use of nutritional yeast, as opposed to brewers yeast, in which your calcium gluconate powder, has remained a contiguous ingredient for. I rate your product five stars overall on mixability both alone and overall, because the product is an uncomplicated compound to produce, and where taste is an irrelevant issue here, although I will remark that it tastes exactly as it did for me 40 years ago, and, as it correctly should be. Thank you for a reliable; quality product. Respectfully, J.G.C.
