Consume calcium in increments

Consume calcium in increments. Don't wash down your 500 mg calcium supplement with a tall glass of milk; rather, drink your milk now and save the supplement for later, or vice versa. Why? Your body absorbs the mineral best—from foods or supplements—in increments of 500 mg or less.
