Calcium Question
Hi, I have irritable bowl syndrome and I have not been taking calcium as it seems to make my constipation problems worse. Are there any calcium tablets that would not do this to be, as I am worried about a lack of calcium? Thanks!

calcium carbonate can cause constipation. The FoodState calcium and magnesium complex calcium should not have this effect. Use at night time - it helps the nervous system to relax and you will sleep better.
