I am 54 years old and i live in india.. i do not have any health problems. I had a pain in my left knee and that was diagnosed as 'mild' arthritis. this was about 3 years ago. ever since then, i have been excercising regularly and now that problem is under control. i take Triple A Cal as a supplement along with B cosules capsulses. My main question to u is ' what is the right time to take calcium?' i was told that it is best to take it during the day; so i have been taking it everyday after lunch. Can u please throw light on this. thank you

There is really no specific time that you need to take it, you can take it any time that is best for you.

However, Calcium can affect the absorption of some other medications, so if you are taking anything else, you should make sure to your medications and your calcium supplement several hours apart.

The specific form in Triple A Cal is Calcium Carbonate, so you should actually take it just before your lunch, because the stomach acid produced, when you eat actually helps improve the absorption of it.
