Twinlab Calcium Citrate Chewable Wafers provide an easily absorbed and digested form of calcium that is excellent for people with lower levels of stomach acid, individuals with greater calcium needs, or those who have difficulty swallowing and digesting large calcium tablets. We've provided 800 IU of Vitamin D3 (per adult serving) to support optimal calcium absorption.
Adequate calcium and Vitamin D3 as part of a healthful diet, along with physical activity, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis in later life.
For adults and children ages four and older, take four wafers daily, preferably with a meal. For post-menopausal women, take six wafers daily, and for children under four years of age, take two wafers daily.
Sucrose, mannitol, natural flavor, stearic acid, cranberry fruit, citric acid, malic acid, maltodextrin.
Each chewable wafer is lightly sweetened with sucrose. Contains no added corn, soy, yeast, wheat, milk or egg products. No salt, artificial colors, flavors or preservatives used.
Keep out of reach of children.

Twinlab changed the formulation and packaging of this product about 2 years ago. The chewable tablets of the current version have a good lemon/citrus flavor, more vitamin D, are smaller and are softer and easier to chew than the previous version. I prefer chewable calcium to avoid too many pills.The problem with them being softer is that many bottles arrive with some broken wafers. 100% Calcium Citrate is the best option for me, since other types of calcium result in constipation. Menopausal females need 1500 mg of calcium a day to prevent osteoporosis. This means chewing 6 tablets three times a day. I have heard that the body cannot absorb more than 500 mg of Calcium at a time. Since I am sensitive to Magnesium, I must wait at least 4 hours between doses to prevent a laxative effect. Give it 4 stars due to the broken wafers. On days when I have missed a dose and have already brushed my teeth, I replace the missed chewable dose with 2 Twinlab Citrate Caps (300 mg) and 1 capsule of Country Life Calcium Citrate (no magnesium, 250 mg Calcium Citrate}. Seeing some seniors walking around with severely curved backs from osteoporosis, which is preventable, motivates me.
Great Calcium source

Good tangy flavor. Contains all the needed supplements that one should take with Calcium also.
Good product, if expensive

The new smaller size is helpful, although the new tablets are dusty and messier than the original version. Taste is OK. Price is a bit high. Seems like a high quality product.
