iHerb Customer Reviews
My mother is 89 years old and I buy this for her because she says it stops her bones from hurting her. She has osteoporosis and can't sleep at night unless she takes this. Thanks. Linda G Miller
I purchase this particular brand for my parents pretty much monthly. She is 90 years old and he is 85. She swears by it, saying it keeps her legs and back from hurting her at night and keeping her awake. She had complained of pain while in bed at night for as long as I can remember before using this supplement. I cannot say what else it is or isn't doing under the hood, but from what she tells me, it's a keeper for pain relief. Linda Miller (Arizona) speaking for the Horners (California)

nice calcium supplement, but way too expensive

We started taking Natural Calm which is magnesium and I really like the product, but we needed a calcium supplement without more magnesium and this fit the bill. Great price and we love the convenience of ordering on iHerb.
Good for bones

it doesn't trouble my belly like citrate or carbonate ....but I would be even more satisfied if magnesium stearate would not be included in this product

This is the best calcium money can buy! It has all the cofactors (in particular phosphorus), and comes from a natural, highly digestible source.
WON'T BUY AGAIN - GIVES ME HAND AND KNEE PAIN

I didn't know until it arrived that it's derived from baby horses. I'm sure it's a cruel process.......Other than that, it gives me pain in my hands during sleeping hours, waking me up - and I'm only 30 years old! And then the pain switched to my knee with fluctuating pain and swelling.....there is something called "Hydroxyapatite Crystal Disease" and I think taking these pills is similar in effect. Also, I think it's too high a dose; it should be 2:1 Magnesium to Calcium. So I'm switching to about 1,000mg Magnesium Citrate and 500mg Calcium Citrate. Note: the powder form is cheapest.
