    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 seem extremely low to have an effect 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 orotate.

    Hello, Well-written article, and useful Info I stumbled on in researching orotates is that oratinic acid was found to promote tumors (liver I think) in rats. Not sure if a mineral salt is so different from it’s parent ingredients. Any comments? Thanks much!

    Thank you for your informative, easy to understand article and passion for natural health. Do you have a whole foods or natural brand of orotate and 2-AEP that you would recommend?

    Take a look at the effects of K2. It helps prevent calcification. It is not very present in our diet now that cattle are not grass fed. There are vitamin D supplements that contain K2.

    I was wondering if a complex of calcium, magnesium and potassium would be the best for a 75 year old female who is not on any RX medications of any kind and with a history of some reactions to several RX drugs, with only slight osteoporosis and elevated blood pressure, and probably generalized decreased mobility likely related to age. I realize if taken wrong minerals can cause problems as well as help them. What is your take on this?

    Hi, is Ester -c safe to take? Will the calcium be absorbed by the cell?

    Calcium carbonate, chalk, and calcium oxide are not the same mineral. Calcium oxide is unslaked lime, which when dropped into water creates tremendous heat, and boils the water

    Hi John! I couldn’t agree with you more! That is why I love calcium orotate and 2-AEP calcium.

    Thanks for your comment!!
