iHerb Customer Reviews
I have been using this product from Pioneer for over 5 years. I like the fact that they use a form of calcium from Grass fed bovine bone and include trace minerals from a seaweed source. They also include a small amount of vitamin D3 (not much) which research has shown is a more desirable form than D2. The magnesium is needed to absorb the calcium. Boron is an important trace mineral needed to prevent bone demineralization (osteoporosis). It is typically found in root vegetables but with aggressive farming techniques I am not confidant I will always get enough. Although it is a tablet, it does dissolve well. I have tested it in vinegar. If you found this review helpful, kindly visit my iHerb home page and read more of my reviews. Just click on my handle name above to get there. Peace and good health.
