Even though my supplement says take 2 daily, I only take one (600 mg calcium; 800 iu Vitamin D). I take it in the morning with food, as the directions state. I only take one because the rest of my calcium I can get from my diet.
Side note: I know some Paleo people think calcium is overhyped, but a few months after I quit dairy my nails were so thin and weak that the aluminum foil box cut the top of them. According to Cronometer, I was only averaging 20% of the RDA. After starting supplements, my nail quality has improved.

I don't get enough calcium in my diet, either, according to cronometer. I've been adding canned salmon with the bones, but that's still only a third of my RDA of calcium. I also try to eat leafy greens as much as possible. Lastly, there's some calcium in my Natural Calm.
