Calcium Gluconate Powder
Calcium Gluconate is classified as a Calcium Salt, and is therefore quite soluble in water and not as chalky as some other Calcium supplements.
Health Benefits Provided By Calcium Gluconate
Because Calcium is found the most throughout the human body, of any other mineral, it is absolutely essential to maintain high levels of Calcium in order for the body to function properly. Osteoporosis, or as it is sometimes called, 'brittle bone' syndrome, is caused when there is a Calcium deficiency in the body. Whenever levels of Calcium have hit a low, Calcium 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. On top of that, Calcium is also important for the purposes of maintaining strong bones and teeth, as well as muscle contraction. Calcium can also be useful in the binding and neutralization of generally harmful molecules in the body.
One of the largest sources of Calcium is in dairy, with just one small serving of dairy containing about 300mg or one-fourth of the total daily value for Calcium. However, Calcium is also found in many other natural sources such as seaweed, nuts, legumes, and quinoa. Despite its wide distribution throughout the food pyramid, some people still suffer from Hypocalcemia (or Vitamin D deficiency) which causes issues with Calcium absorption. This is because Calcium can only be correctly absorbed by the body with the help of Vitamin D. A good Calcium-rich diet or supplement routine should still include appropriate levels of Vitamin D in it for this reason.
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.

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.
