Today we’re going to talk about the side effect of calcium carbonate. A lot of people take calcium carbonate, but they don’t know much about it. 

The biggest thing you need to know is that calcium and other minerals need an acidic medium to be absorbed. If your stomach does not have the acidity you need, the calcium will not be absorbed well.

A lot of people take calcium carbonate for heartburn, and the calcium carbonate dries up the acid in the stomach over time. So not only is the calcium not being absorbed, but it also ends up actually causing heartburn. In my opinion, apple cider vinegar might be a better choice for GERD or heartburn. But, of course, check with your doctor. 

Some studies show that high doses of calcium carbonate also do not increase bone density in osteoporosis. But, it did increase the risk of heart attacks. 

Calcium carbonate may even lower the thyroid function and block a person’s ability to utilize T3 (the active form of thyroid hormone). 

Side effects of calcium carbonate:

1. Loss of appetite
2. Constipation
3. Gas
4. Nausea 
5. Vomiting 
6. A decrease in hydrochloric acid (HCL)

Contraindications to calcium carbonate:

• Kidney stones
• Hypercalcemia 
• Calcification 
• A severe interaction with 210 drugs 

A lot of people are taking massive doses of calcium carbonate, thinking that it will prevent bone loss when it could actually be creating other issues.
