great form of calcium

Posted by Reviewer2414245 on Dec 08, 2009

I am very cautious about taking calcium supplements after reading a book about calcium by Douglas Mulhall & Katja Hansen. Very illuminating. This product fits the bill nicely because it is plant-based, even though it doesn't taste that great. But I mix it in green drinks or with other foods so I never taste it. Older folks should note, though, that it does have some iron in it.

Worthwhile supplement for certain nutrients.

Posted by Reviewer1374200 on Feb 06, 2009

Good daily 'top up' supplement, I was assured of its potency after taking 3 measures in a day and felt noticably more energetic.

Green Calcium too high in iron...

Posted by Reviewer2963961 on Jun 08, 2008

I bought this product thinking it would be a great surce of natural calcium but found that it tastes terrible, can plug you up, and is way too high in iron for most people. I wish I had read the iron content before purchasing. It tastes like some kind of algae product that should be kept in a fish tank or sea. Sorry, this one is thumbs down for me.

Excellent Product

I was introduced to Green Calcium by knowledgeable employee at Wild Oats in Tucson. It completely agrees with my body. It was difficult to get used to the texture and non-taste, but now I mix it with half water and half guava juice. Much easier. Also I let it soak for a while. Have just started the 2nd container of powder. Am grateful I can order it on line as it is not available in Canada.

This product is great. I have been adding it to my morning fruit smoothies - I can't taste it, but my body loves it!
