Can Calcium suppliments cause . . .
Yes + constipation.
I've seen ones combined with magnesium that may lessen that affect.
It figures. I'm taking magnesium suppliments to deal with the leg cramps too. I'm trying one thing at a time to find something that works. Next will be drinking bone broth. I used to make and drink it all the time. Non-primal "others" in the house don't like the smell of it cooking so I'll have to buy the best I can for awhile. Kitchen Basics was recommended.

I sort of wonder if that could be my problem.
