    Q. Just wondering what a good calcium supplement would be. And would it still be beneficial if I drink 3 cups of coffee every morning.
    A. 

     New research has confirmed that if your calcium intake is adequate, up to 3 cups of coffee per day does not seem leach calcium from bone. The important factor is that you have enough in your diet or supplement. One of our best calcium supplements is Osteoplus. Another option is Advacal.

    In its 2010 update of calcium and vitamin D recommendations, the U.S. National Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Medicine (IOM) reviewed the existing research related to dietary factors that potentially could impact calcium balance in the body and found that, although caffeine modestly increases calcium excretion and reduces absorption, caffeine intake (equivalent to two to three or more cups of coffee per day) only results in bone loss in individuals with low milk or low total calcium intake. The IOM also found that dietary phosphorus has no negative impact of on calcium absorption, and noted that although several observational studies have suggested that the consumption of carbonated soft drinks with high levels of phosphate is associated with reduced bone mass and increased fracture risk, “it is likely that the effect is due to replacing milk with soda, rather than to phosphorus itself.” - See more at: http://beverageinstitute.org/us/article/understanding-the-relationship-between-bone-health-and-beverages-with-phosphoric-acid-and-caffeine/#sthash.vZ8BUeBx.dpufIn its 2010 update of calcium and vitamin D recommendations, the U.S. National Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Medicine (IOM) reviewed the existing research related to dietary factors that potentially could impact calcium balance in the body and found that, although caffeine modestly increases calcium excretion and reduces absorption, caffeine intake (equivalent to two to three or more cups of coffee per day) only results in bone loss in individuals with low milk or low total calcium intake.

    Q. I have now seen a good dentist and been referred to a periodontist. Supplements are great, but I've learned that they may not be reaching my gums as smoking restricts the blood flow to this area. I am seeking topical solutions and also supplements that make hall regenerate the alveola bone (the one the teeth are anchored into). Do you think you could help me with this.
    A. 

    Regarding nutritional support for alveola bone - Metagenics Osteo Plus or Bioceuticals AdvaCal - both contain a calcium hydroxyapatite bone matrix which contains the nutrients to nourish bone health.

    Regarding improving absorption of nutrients to gums and periodontal regions consider CoQ10 - Metagenics Bio Q-Absorb 150 or Bioceuticals CoQ10 Excel 150 - 1 per day.  See link below for more info:

    Q. I have been taking Metagenics Osteo Plus and was wondering if you could suggest another product that is not so expensive, but just as effective?
    A. 

    The best alternative is BioCeutical's Advacal - you only need 3 / day instead of 4 / day of the Osteo Plus. It has a hydroxyapatite crystaline calcium complex matrix for maximum absorption, and is similiar to Osteoplus.
