Calcium Citrate is a form of calcium that is more soluble and better absorbed by the body than other forms of calcium. Research suggests that people who experience low levels of HCl in the stomach may absorb more calcium from calcium citrate than from calcium carbonate. Calcium citrate can help support and maintain a healthy skeletal system, especially during the menopausal years when bone loss increases.

Calcium citrate - This form is best absorbed in the body. Took a month to 3 capsules, and now I drink two. I noticed that the nails are strong, and I think all the bones stronger)
I take this in conjunction with other things like vitamin D3 to reverse osteoporosis. I also take calcium to help prevent leg and feet cramps.

Bought calcium supposedly for increased weight loss during working out (or cutting) phase (read in a few fitness books & also on Martin Berkhan's Leangains) Feel like it is effective, can't really tell. Always look for more bio-available form (easier absorbed by the body) eg citrate and possibly with Vit D3 (not D2) and try to take with meals (it requires a more acidic environment to breakdown). Adding Magnesium to the stack at a different time would helpful too. Careful if you are taking calcium blocker for high blood pressure as there might be interactions. Also it might make your thyroid sluggish.

Although, I decided recently to try coral calcium, this is still a product I will remember as a good product. Some reports say coral calcium absorbs better and others citrate. Right now, not noticing the difference. I think this is better priced than the coral that I am using now so perhaps switching back is in order.
Happy with this offering.
