Explores the health benefits of Dolomite Effects, Dolomite use, comprehensive guide to herbal remedies.

Dolomite is commonly used in a variety of products. A few of these are listed below:

• antacids (neutralizes stomach acid)

• base for face creams, baby powders, or toothpaste

• calcium/magnesium nutritional supplements for animals and humans

• ceramic glazes on china and other dinnerware (dolomite is used as source of magnesia and calcia)

• fertilizers (dolomite added as soil nutrient)

• glass (used for high refractive optical glass)

• gypsum impressions from which dental plates are made (magnesium carbonate)

• mortar and cement

• plastics, rubbers, and adhesives

Although calcium carbonate (the kind found in dolomite) has the highest concentration of calcium by weight (40%) and is the most common preparation available, this form of calcium is relatively insoluble and can be difficult to break down in the body. In contrast, calcium citrate, although containing about half as much calcium by weight (21%), is a more soluble form. Since calcium citrate does not require gastric acid for absorption, it is considered a better source of supplemental calcium, particularly for the elderly, whose stomach acid secretions are decreased.

Calcium supplements offer many benefits and recent research even reports that calcium supplements can help prevent formation of kidney stones when combined with a fairly low animal protein, low salt diet. Doctors once advised a low-calcium diet to prevent kidney stones.
