Is it bad to take a tums everyday? by Connie b. Dellobuono
Answer by Connie b. Dellobuono:
I do not encourage use of Tums.
Tums: “They do have significant side effects, especially in older patients,” Dr. Logan said. Studies have linked antacids to an increased risk of pneumonia, gastrointestinal infections, antibiotic resistance, severe diarrhea, and possibly osteoporosis. And Tums can also cause B12 deficiency and other hearth issues.
I will take calcium with magnesium and Vit C/D from whole food sources and supplements with better absorption results. Take your calcium and magnesium in the evening since it will cancel the absorption of iron in the morning.
