Can anyone tell me the effects of Calcium Citrate and whether or not it is available in the UK. I have been to a few health shops and can find magnesium citrate but not calcium?I suffer from IBS - Chronic C constantly and am currently cutting out the wheat products and minimising the milk and carbohydrate products - not much to eat left really but it should help me lose the weight I have put on with IBS - I will miss the chocolate though
I am under the impression that calcium citrate will help with muscle contraction - is this true
Any offers welcome.------------------SD

I take calcium citrate because of risks of osteoporosis, but it hasn't helped my C at all. It's better than calcium carbonate (Caltrate) though.

Sorry I don't know about the UK, I'd image they have calcium citrate. I get calcium citrate in a Health Food Store. The one I use is by Twin Labs. It has no effect on IBS one way or another, so it's a safe form of calcium to take. Calcium Corbonate is good for D, and can cause C. It is available everywhere in the states. It harder to find Calcium Citrate.

If you cannot find calcium citrate, try eating citrus: grapefruit, lemons, oranges, limes, tangerines. Also citric acid is available in many beverages like fruit juices and fruit drinks and some soda pop and in some popsicles in kool-aid and maybe even in some jello. Read the labels. Good luck. And please report back on anything that works for you.
