Is Calcium and Magnesium Necessary with Didrocal?
I am on Didrocal. Should I be taking calcium too? What about Magnesium?
Check the amount of calcium with the Didrocal. You should be getting 1000-1200 mg of calcium per day. That includes what you are getting in food sources. It is not usually necessary to add magnesium.
