I am 13 years old and about to turn 14 on aug 7. I take a multi vitamin, calcium citrate and magnesium oxide.
My question is mainly about the calcium. I drink NO milk at all. I hate it. I usually eat low fat frozen yogurt (which has very little calcium) and drink whey once or twice a day. I will sometimes eat cottage cheese with fruit.
Is it safe to be taking the calcium citrate? Is this the best form of calcium i can get?
My calcium supplement has the following ingredients in 2 tablets:
Vitamin D- 250 I.U.
Vitamin B6- 10 mg
Calcium- 500 mg
Copper- 1 mg
Maganese- 1 mg
Boron- 1 mg
I take 2 pills 2 times a day. Is there anything wrong with this?
When is the best time to take my calcium, multivitamin, and magnesium?
