I am having difficulty in choosing a supplement for my type O, 6 yr old boy that will provide the amount of calcium he needs on a daily basis and one that is absorbable. áHe is presently on a chewable multi.

What is the best way to supplement a type O child in this way.?

Thanks for your help.

calcium citrate might be an option.

Hi Luana,
Until my kids could swallow pills, I gave them chewable calcium magnesium.  Twin Lab made a citrus flavor.  I don't recall what it was sweetened with, so that might be a BTD issue.  My personal opinion would be that for a healthy Type O, a bit of avoid sweetener would be a better choice than than milk products.

I prefer cal/mag capsules to tablets.  They are easier to assimilate and easier to swallow.  Lots of companies make cal/mag capsules.  My son could swallow a capsule when he wasn't much older than 6.  Then the sweetener doesn't come into play.

My teenage daughter hasn't had milk for more than three years.  She occasionally eats yogurt.  She gets most of her daily calcium from cal/mag capsules.  She knows it's working because when she takes the full dose she is free from cramps.  If she gets off of calcium, cramps come back.

You can get calcium citrate powder and add it to food such as smoothies. I have done this before.

My O daughter has been on the btd since she was 5  years - and she has been swallowing pills since she was 4
She uses calcium citrate with D3 at the moment- when I am better off I get her NAPs products.

Thanks everyone.  I will attempt the capsule form for him and see how he does.  At the moment my two A & O children are on Nu-Bears Multimineral and Vitamin supplement but it only has 63 mg of calcium in each chewable.  

Thanks again.  Supplementing can be so confusing out there.  \

enough beneficial meat protein in his diet will help him absorb more calcium from his food sources like canned salmon (with bones), broccoli and collard greens...he has abundant Alkaline phophatase which breaks down animal fat as well as facilitates the absorption of calcium...

elemental calcium for O children during their growth periods between 2-5 and 9-16 (600 to 1100mg) is beneficial

Clearcal is available through NAP
