I have been reading that chelated compounds are better because they do not neutralize the acid you need to efficiently digest your food (and avoid dyspepsia). Any thoughts on this? I want to start taking it again but welcome any info.

I get my calcium in the form of skim milk.

Calcium citrate with vitamin D (Brand - exact).
Why?...because someone from my family bought 2 bottles of these stuff and it was sitting there on the kitchen shelf ever since.

The reason I want to know is because I do not want to cause more GERD symptoms. I have been so afraid of sinking back into that crisis I have stopped taking calcium altogether. Not good for me.

I've always taken Twin Lab Calcium Citrate with MagnesiumTwinlab Calcium Citrate Plus Magnesium -- 250 Capsules - Vitacost.  It's quickly absorbed in the system and calcium is a good supplement to take even with GERD.  It will absorb extra acid.

Just a note about calcium supplements ---
If you take CALCIUM CARBONATE, be careful with constipation. CALCIUM CITRATE with magnesium is excellent, you will never have problems.
