Turbo Calcium

Anyone use Turbo Calcium? Any better insturctions on how to use if then what's on the lable? It's hard to measure a 1/8 of a teaspone plus I tryed it and the calcium levels never moved. I'm trying to raise my calcium levels to 400.

check this out: http://home.comcast.net/~jdieck1/chem_calc3.html

input current levels, product used, and it'll tell you how much turbo calcium you need.

You probably need several teaspoons...that was the issue I had...an 1/8 tsp. was barely enough to maintain my low levels, let alone raise them. I needed 7.8tsp to reach my target levels.

I wouldn't add more than 1tsp a day. But plastic measuring spoons and 1/8 tsp. is a snap to measure out.
