I have two large spurs in my toe joints.
Q. Dear Terry, “I have two large spurs in my toe joints in both feet and also spurs in each heal. While stretching my calves provides relief from the heal pain caused by the spurs, the spurs in the toe joints are another story. Is there anything to help deal with them?” — Dottie R., Fort Worth, TX
A. Dear Dottie, Bone spurs (also called “osteophytes”) are often the result of aging, weak bone structure, physical activity, and pH imbalances.
To specifically address the bone spurs, I recommend adding a combination of calcium and magnesium, along with bioavailable B6, betaine HCl, vitamin C, and ammonium chloride. These ingredients help keep calcium more fluid to make sure it doesn’t form clumps that later become bone spurs. In short, they help ensure that calcium is where it should be, dissolves it where it shouldn’t be, and prevents it from building up there again.
I recommend taking 2 capsules of this blend with each meal, followed by 2 capsules at bedtime. However, once your immediate concerns are cleared up, I think going to a maintenance dosage of 1 or 2 per day is sufficient.
When choosing a product, make sure to look for one that contains calcium in the form of calcium phosphate and calcium chloride, as well as magnesium in the form of magnesium glycerophosphate, as these forms are important in maintaining optimal calcium absorption, as well as a healthy acid/alkaline balance.
