Mineral Compound Fileter- Dolomite

  • Its a mineral rock composed of calcium and magnesium carbonates.
  • Sold in health food stores as dolomite tablets which contain approximately two-thirds calcium and one-third magnesium.
  • Dolomite tablets are strong alkalines. They can supplement both calcium and magnesium.
  • These tablets can help overcome stomach acidity when taken after a meal or during heartburn. For a quick effect, dolomite powder is preferable, or 2 or 3 tablets crushed in the mouth before swallowing.

It is best to buy dolomite packaged under a reputable brand name which declares it purity.

Note: Dolomite tablets can contain some lead like many other brands of calcium supplements. Dolomite should be used by adults only, since children under six years of age are less able to tolerate lead than adults.
