    Great article! Thank you for making the issue very understandable to lay people. My question is, I drink raw milk and homemade yogurt and kefir from that milk. Would the calcium in the whole raw cow’s milk be absorbable?

    What a great article. I love “how” you explain and break things down; making it easy to understand. So practical. Love it. Thank you so much.

    Good article.

    Raphaela, calcium from heated milk becomes carbonic and won’t be bio available! This is going to hurt you even eventually. But raw, unheated milk (maybe instead of cow try goat, google yourself why goat milk might be better), is good.

    I’ve tried to buy calcium orotate. In emailed questions to companies about purity and allergens, I’m finding that calcium orotate is made from calcium carbonate (“limestone”, “calcium salt”).. So is calcium orotate really cacium carbonate with orotate bonded to the calcium carbonate? (Or is it orotic acid attached to the calcium carbonate?)

    Hi Roger, The salts of orotic acid form orotates. These orotates were found to be extremely successful as “mineral carriers”, which increases the bioavailability of the mineral such as calcium, magnesium, lithium and potassium. They are not made from calcium carbonate.

    Good article!
    I was previously buying Calcium 85mg and Magnesium 40 mg (both orotate chelated) for my wife, 1x per day each, but her doctor said her calcium levels in her blood were too high.
    So I switched to a Magnesium:Calcium 2:1 supplement that is glycinate chelated. Do you have any idea where the glycinate form compares to the others?

    Hi Ed! The amount and dosage in your oroate seems extremely low to have an affect on your wife’s blood levels. So, I’d have to know more about your wife’s state of health to answer your question. In the meantime, I’d go with only magnesium oroate. If you like, you may email me at drmichelle@onlineholistichealth.com
