OK. I'm looking at the bottle of ezorb that I bought and now am not going to use. It is made up of both two things: calcium aspartate anhydrous 1120mg, and elemental calcium 146mg. (These number are for 2 capsules) I think elemental calcium is just the regular calcium you would find in something like citracal so 3 times that amount won't kill you but who knows what Calcium aspartate anydrous is?!?!?. They claim it is a much more absorbable form of calcium but you can hardly find any information about it anywhere. 1120mg is an awfully large number and 3 times that amount is huge! Makes me wonder what my body was absorbing that was so disagreeable. Also, if it is completely safe, why isn't Ezorb more forth-coming about what it is and where it comes from? One interesting point made in an article I ran across commented that "there are many substances that can take up residence in you bones - even lead can build up in your bones and cause increased bone mass (YIKES)! No thank you. I think I will continue to investigate options that are openly under research (ie strontium). Blessings - jrose
There is a lot more information and clinical research being done on Strontium Ranelate which is widely used in europe to treat osteo. Strontium Ranelate isn't FDA approved as a treatment here in the United States but you can buy Strontium Citrate at health food stores. It is strongly believed that Strontium is the active component and the the Ranelate or Citrate is simply the delivery medium so the theory is that Strontium Citrate will be every bit as safe and effective as Strontium Ranelate. Again - there is very little if any research on Strontium Citrate but I think you can make an educated decision based on studies on Strontium Ranelate. As for me, the jury is still out. I too am Osteopenia. If I do have to take meds down the line, I think I would consider Strontium because at least it is being studied and information about it is out in the open and recognized in the medical community. Ezorb - seems shrouded in a lot of hype and mystery.
