Calicum Carbonate is generally the most cost effective and most widely used calcium supplement. Most of all calcium supplements sold in the US are made from calcium carbonate. Calcium Carbonate is also used frequently in antacids. In addition to pharmaceutical and health applications, Calcium Carbonate is found in products such as baking powder, toothpaste, dry-mix dessert mixes, dough and wine.
Calcium Carbonate has been found to be safe and is used to supplement daily calcium intake. The recommended calcium intake for adults is in the range of 1,000 to 1,300 milligrams daily, depending on age, gender, and personal circumstances. It is also the most concentrated calcium supplement and has about twice as much elemental calcium by weight as calcium citrate. Therefore, it requires smaller tablets to achieve a given dose.
