Stomach Problems/Calcium?

Hey everyone,

I have had stomach problems for 2 yrs now. I can no longer drink milk(Lactose intolerant now) and many other things.

My questionis, what would be the best calcium substitute. I obviously need to be getting my calcium and I do feel that my bones might have possibly become weaker since I stopped drinking milk.

I do take GNC mens multi vitamin sport which has calcium in it but I'm not sure if it is enough daily.

thanks for the help.
Brandon

Lift weights, eat greens. Spend the money you are blowing on suppliments on even more greens.

Re: Stomach Problems/Calcium?

Stomach issues can be related to glutenincluding wheat. Go paleo and eat green veggies, lean protein and good fats but eliminate nuts and I can almost guarantee no stomach issues. Oh and those supplements you are taking are doing wonders for your toilet bowl!!

Re: Stomach Problems/Calcium?

Brandon,

Yours is a bacterial problem. Not a calcium one.

I want you to go down to your local health food store and buy liquid Acidophilus at 15 billion parts per million (tablespoon).

Take 6 tablespoons a day for one week. Then limit to 2 table spoons for the next two weeks.

Finally, I want you to take a daily probiotic (garden of life - primal defense) every morning for the rest of your life.

Doug

Hi Doug,

I've been taking chewable Acidophilus, but at 1.5 (one point five) billion parts per million. You're recommending 10 times that amount... and liquid form? Is there a big difference?

And I just ordered some of the probiotics.

Thanks
Melissa

Melissa, 1.5 is great for daily maintenance. But when your loading for sickness you will need around 10 times the amount. Liquid has the highest amount of live bacteria and enters the beginning of the digestive tract (Duodenum) quickly.
