What is the most potent and delicious way to get more calcium and D3? Bone broth?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created August 20, 2013 at 8:53 AM

I am looking into a source of calcium that gives me the most amount of calcium per portion.

I don't really like bone broths, but I am okay with oxtail soup. Can I have the soup instead? Is is a good replacement

Also, I need to supplement with vitamin D3 but I fall asleep every time I take it. So either I have to find an alternative source (food or supplement) or spend the rest of my life outside.

I know Dragonfly recommended some other supplement instead, and I wrote it down somewhere and lost it. So what is the best Vitamin D source? Both food and supplements?

(Ah, rechecked the study, and it's showing no increase in calcium/minerals over 7 hours. So, either I recalled incorrectly, or other thoughts or discussion led me to think that even at 72 hours, the calcium/magnesium/minerals from bones in a bone broth would be very little. Hmmm.)

There was an interesting study which found that bone broth does not, indeed, contain significant calcium, even with vinegar and 72 hours' cooking time, but the bones themselves would. I also find the idea of eating bones/bone meal rather enticing. :-)

Interesting. I've heard of Carlson's Solar Gems, but not used it. (Many hereconsider it very high quality.) I had also tried the canned salmon for Ca for awhile, but the salt/water/quality made me feel ill, or/and I am sensitive to the BPA. Either way, the BPA/estrogenic compounds worry me, so I make bone broth & (subsequently)bone meal, which is somewhat cooking-intensive.

What about BPA lining in cans?

Solgar. Not sure why, but it makes me sleepy.

Canned salmon, eat the bones.

You could try making bone meal for calcium. Unsure about vitamin D but curious -- which supplement makes you fall asleep?

D is very hard (but potentially possible) to get adequately from food, or large doses of HVBO/FCLO.
