Our expert says:
Calcium supplements will not help prevent shin-splints or prevent pain- especially with the amount of high-impact things you do with your body! If you take approximately 1000mg of calcium per day (whether in diet alone or diet and supplements), it would be sufficient to keep your bones strong. Exercise is also good to keep your bones strong, but you may be doing a bit much high impact- that is why the shins complain and it certainly is not due to a lack of calcium.
