While I will always prefer getting our nutrients from our diets, supplementation can also be important. I wanted to share this article on calcium supplementation, though, since there seems to be a link between calcium supplementation and heart disease in men. More research is needed before any “across the board” recommendation is made. Ask your doctor if you should be supplementing calcium and, if so, what form is best for you. I also recommend including at least magnesium if you supplement calcium–additional trace minerals may also be advisable.
