[Voice of Hope April 17, 2023](Editor: Li Wenhan) Calcium supplementation is an issue that many people are concerned about, but what you may not know is that the calcium you have finally added may be lost due to some of your living habits.

If you have a strong taste and eat salty food, in addition to easily causing blood pressure to rise, it will also cause calcium to be excreted more easily from urine.

In our diet, if we consume too much salt, in the reabsorption process of the renal tubules, too much sodium ions can compete with calcium ions, the excretion of calcium will increase, and the dynamic balance of bone calcium metabolism will be disrupted, thus causing some Calcium deficiency in the human body is more prone to osteoporosis and fractures.

Therefore, the more salt you eat, the more calcium you will lose. The Chinese Nutrition Society recommends that the daily salt intake of adults should be less than 6 grams, so we should slowly change our habit of heavy taste.

When supplementing calcium, in addition to eating more foods with relatively high calcium content, you can also supplement some calcium tablets appropriately, so how should you choose calcium tablets? In fact, it mainly depends on its ingredients.

Calcium tablets are mainly divided into two categories: organic calcium and inorganic calcium.

The main component of inorganic calcium is calcium carbonate. Its advantages are relatively high calcium content and low price. The disadvantage is that it stimulates our gastrointestinal tract. Relatively speaking, its absorption will be slightly poorer.

Organic calcium is mainly calcium lactate, calcium acetate, calcium gluconate, etc. Its advantages and disadvantages are just opposite to those of inorganic calcium. Although the calcium content is lower, it has less stimulating effect on the gastrointestinal tract, and the absorption effect is relatively better.

For us ordinary adults, there is not much difference in choosing a type of calcium tablet, but for the elderly and children, if the gastrointestinal function is relatively poor, it is recommended that you choose some organic calcium, which is easy to absorb, and the absorption of organic calcium is not difficult. It needs the participation of stomach acid, and it can be eaten at any time.
