I have read that too much gluten (wheat) will restrict the amount of calcium absorbed, so even if you are taking in tons of calcium if you have 'too much' gluten (whole wheat bread and/or whole wheat paste) our body will not be able to absorb it properly. How much 'gluten' is "too much?" How much gluten is ok without affecting our calcium absorption?<br><br>
Thanks for your answers :)

I have never heard that. However, I would think that if this is true, that calcium intake would only be affected when taken at the same time as the gluten. I take ca++ first thing in the morning and before I go to bed, and I have nothing else in my stomach.<br><br><br><br>
BTW- if you find yourself in a situation that requires taking antibiotics, do not take them with food or supplements containing calcium. The calcium can inhibit absorption of some antibiotics.
