Oh, one more thing! I just wanted to add that I don't think calcium supplements are going to help too much with mood stabilization. I don't think it crosses the blood-brain barrier.
It works better for your bones and osteo although it can help with sleep (eg. the warm milk scenario.) Also, if you are going to take calcium be sure to have magnesium as a adjunct. It helps along with the absorption process.
For what it's worth. however, calcium before bed hasn't done squat for me! And in the recent past, I noticed it was giving me heartburn...how's that for weird!
