Interested in knowing if anybody has tried EZorb and what were the results. It seems kind of pricey for a calcium supplement, but if does what they claim then might be worth a try. Also, how many milligrams are in a single dose? Wouldn't it cause hypercalcaemia if too excessive in addition to your regular diet?

thanks
:confused:
Does the jar have a reference web site or contact that you could ask about the dosage? What store was selling it? Did the label say what type of calcium it was -carbonate, citrate?

Yes, I use it, a few others here do as well. You might do a search for previous threads. I have stated that after using Ezorb I was finally able to grow nails. I would suggest you go to their web site where all your questions are answered. The first few months it is a greater monetary output because they suggest you double the dose to kickstart it. After that initial period, it is about the same in price (especially if you buy the package deal) as any other good calcium supplement I have used.

Yes, I saw your posts. I'm guessing you've been consistently on it since March 2005? I'm happy to see it's working for you. They claim you get an energy boost as well. Have you felt that? Any negative side effects? Where do you buy your Ezorb...I'm trying to find the best price. thanks

I have not found it anywhere but at the manufacturer's site. Absolutely no side effects. I haven't noticed a boost in energy but I'm not probably not the best person to ask that question as I also have a condition called CFIDS, which results in profound flares of fatigue (among other things). To date, there are very few things that address this illness.
Hi, I was wondering about EZorb... I have seen their advertisement online and wonder if it is all it says it is. I tried taking fosamax but had to stop because of severe muscle pain and am apprehensive about taking any of the other prescription remedies for osteoporosis.
Del56,
I haven't tried ezorb Calcium but thanks for the link to the Osteoporosis articles.
hi all!
i tried ezorb calcium and 1-1/2 days later developed a bladder irritation/infection. the doctor treated me with antibiotics but when the lab results came back, they could not find any bacteria. i have since stopped taking the ezorb, but was wondering if anyone else had such an experience or was my bladder irritation just coincidental or is it linked to the ezorb? i am anxious to get started on some sort of calcium supplement but am afraid to restart the ezorb. thanks all.
I've never heard of this. I'm glad your feeling better. Have you tried Calcium Supplements in pill form yet?
I am very sensitive to certain products but have not experienced [I]any[/I] side-effects with Ezorb;in fact, just ordered another batch yesterday. You might go to the Elixir site and see if you can contact them with this question. Bladdder infections can be caused by all kinds of things, then again, do you feel the doctor was certain of the diagnosis? I've been on Ezorb for awhile now and so far no complaints. Will see what my next Dexa reports.
It is possible that Ezorb could make your system slightly more alkaline state. This might create an environment more conducive to bladder or urinary tract type infections....hard to say, some people are a bit more sensitive to PH balance. However, if that is the problem, then it can be offset by taking extra ascorbic acid (Vitamin C), orange juice or cranberry juice(best bet) or anything on the acid side with your Ezorb.
thank for all the info. i am feeling much better now, however, i still have quite alot of residual pain left from the fosamax.... that stuff is something else! upsetting the alkaline balance of my body from the ezorb makes sense... i will probably try it again but this time with orange juice or cranberry juice or something. right now though, i am just taking between 1200-1500 mgs of calcium a day.
does anybody know, will the ezorb help with the residual pain from the fosamax? i dont like taking ibuprofen all the time, but need something for the pain. and does anyone know if exercise will help or hinder the fosamax pain effect?
i am so glad i hit on this website. everybody has been a lot of help. Thanks!

Have you ever tried Homeopathic? Bryonia Alba 30C, 3 pellets 3X a day (if the pain doesn't radiate). If the pain radiates then Hypericum would work better.

I have also used Tumeric capsules - 3 capsules 3 times a day for pain.

These are more subtle ways to address pain, but maybe preferable if you don't want to continue Ibuprofen, which can have many side-effects if taken regularly.
I have been taking E-ZORB calcium after reading about it on this message board since the beginning of the summer 2005 and I just had a bone density test a few weeks ago. The last time I had a bone density test was 8/31/2004.

Results by t-score from 8/31/2004

lumbar spine - 0.8 borderline osteopenia
left femur - 2.3 osteopenia
right femur was not scanned

Results by t-score from 11/18/2005 using a different scanner

lumbar spine - 0.2 normal
left femur - 2.4 osteopenia
right femur - 1.9 osteopenia

Meaurement of left femur showed a drop in BDM (g/cm2) from 0.724 to 0.714 which dropped me from -2.3 last year to -2.4 this year, I don't know what the error rates are.

The lumbar spine has increased from 1.105 BDM to 1.178, which now gives me a normal score of -0.2, an improvement over last year's borderline osteopenia score of -0.8, so I am going to stick with the EZORB since my spine improved and I have no side effects.

I am hoping the hip will improve also. I am taking two tablets in the morning and two at night. When I called to order more, I told the rep my scores and
he was so happy that my spine improved, and he told me most of
their customers see an improvement. He suggested that I take three in the morning and three at night, said it would not hurt. Maybe a higher dose
will help my hip along.

I also started going to the gym to work on the equipment, I really like going,
I didn't think I would. I lost five pounds already, and I've only been going for two weeks. I'm excited about that, and I hope my bone density improves with weight bearing exercise.

Any comments regarding my t-scores and/or increasing the dose of EZORB would be appreciated, I am undecided about taking six tablets a day, as the rep suggested.

Thanks!

I thought the higher the number the more bone loss on the Dexa score, so I'm a bit confused. If this is correct than your left femur score has increased slightly indicating more, not less, bone loss. I may be incorrect on the information you are presenting. I hope so. That anything has decreased is certainly something to celebrate, though! That you are also doing weight bearing exercise will further contribute to the health of your bones.

I started the first 3 months with the recommended dosage for my weight (under160 lbs) and condition (osteoporosis/osteopenia),which is 8 capsules a day split between morning and evening ( for half of that 3 month period I actually divided between AM, Noon and PM. After this period I went on the maintenance dose - 4 capsules twice a day AM and PM.

Congratulations!

ORIGINALLY POSTED BY JACAL5

You are correct, the t-score in my hip was slightly worse, it went from -2.3
to -2.4, because of the .10 decrease in the BDM (mean bone mineral density) per centimeter squared from readings of 0.724 last year to 0.714 this year.
I apologize for the lack of clarity in my original explanation of the t-score.

I read on line that if the hip score is much worse than the spine, you should be tested on a different scanner, so that's why I went to another facility this year. I was glad I did, because the first scanner only scanned the left side and I always worried if I had osteporosis in the right hip, but it turns out the right hip has higher bone density than the left according to my new scan, but the right has osteopenia also.

Maybe my hip needs more weight-bearing exercise along with the
calcium supplements to improve. I was laid up with a strained ACL in my knee or several weeks before I took the DEXA scan, not even able to walk much, I just laid on the couch because of the chronic pain. I am going to physical therapy and the knee is much better now and that enabled me to join the gym. I should have joined a long time ago, I didn't realize the equipment is so easy to work out on, and I feel so good after the exercise.

I was reading about osteoporosis on-line, and a physician stated that the t-scores that indicate osteoporosis were moved to -2.5 from another t-score
that was a lower number, and not many people know that. In other words,
the doctor is implying that the t-score criteria for osteoporosis was changed, so more people would be on the drugs unnecessarily, so in the past a t-score
of -2.5 was not indicative of osteoporosis. Very interesting......

Thanks for the congratulations.

This information would square with that presented in the book [I]The Myth of Osteoporosis[/I]
I started the first 3 months with the recommended dosage for my weight (under160 lbs) and condition (osteoporosis/osteopenia),which is 8 capsules a day split between morning and evening ( for half of that 3 month period I actually divided between AM, Noon and PM.

[COLOR=Blue]Oops, sorry for this mistake. I meant to say the maintenance dose is 4 capsules a day split between AM and PM[/COLOR]
