calcium got many types, but calcium citrate malate is proven best form, as it is most easy absorb by our body. Although calcium citrate is more expensice than calcium carbonate, but worth it. As calcium carbonate difficult dissolve and absorb by our body,mainly flush out with urine or stay in kidney.
I had my yearly physical when I turned 50 this year and my doctor recommended a calcium supplement. She said calcium citrate malate is the best kind for absorption. This formula also has magnesium, D, zinc, copper, a complete formula for strong bones. Very good value on a hard-to-find supplement. I like that the dosage in each tablet is not too high, so I can take 1-2 on days when I'm eating well and getting my calcium through food, and more on the days when I'm not.
The tablets are quite large. But what's annoying is that after a month, the outer covering of the tablets start breaking off and peeling. They have to improve the product . But the product seems to do its job. Will not purchase this again.
