After reading that we actually need more than just calcium to make our aging bones stronger, I looked for a product that includes all the necessary ingredients. This product does seem to meet all the requirements. Only thing is that it is pricy at $25.19 for a month's supply. I do alternate it with Dr Best Bone Builder which costs about $14 per month. One is vegetarian, the other bovine.
After learning the difference between traditional calcium supplements and these vegetable based ones, I switched immediately! I am now buying all my supplements here since they are always in stock, the best prices and have free shipping.

I bought this for my mum, who has osteoporosis. I believe this is one of the best forms of calcium supplements you can get. The ingredients list is impressive, but results are not immediate. She's been taking it for about a month.
Nice natural product, but...
Posted by a3mommy on Aug 21, 2016
I am breastfeeding and I have rheumatoid arthirities, so my rheumatologist instructed me not to ever skip my calcium. However, I didn't feel comfortable taking the usual calcium carbonate in the long run. This feels natural, however, I noticed that this makes my gas stinks big time! Could be due to the vegetables in it (but I could be wrong, seems like no one else gave such a feedback.). So now I alternate between this brand and another brand which makes calcium tablets from organic cow milk (which is not available in iherb as of now).
I like this Calcium
Posted by Reviewer3134982 on May 30, 2016
I like this calcium and use it daily. Because it's made from natural foods it seems easily to digest and absorb. It has some other added vitamins and minerals that seem to help too. I have osteopenia, so calcium is very important to my diet. I find some calcium supplements are constipating, but this one isn't.

I like that this product is from whole foods. I know that this calcium will better be absorbed by my body.
Plant Based Wholefoods Supplement
Posted by plantbadedelixir on Dec 16, 2015
I like that this is a plant based whole foods supplement and not artificial. Has calcium from red algae. And I like that it has magnesium from red algae too. Magnesium is said to be good for neurology such as those suffering chronic migraines and 'migraine attack' episodes.
