Twinlab, Calcium Citrate Caps, Plus Magnesium, 250 Capsules (Discontinued Item)
- Easily Digested
- Quick Acting
- Dietary Supplement
Calcium Citrate is an easily absorbed, soluble and chelated form of calcium preferred by many health and nutritional experts. It is less likely to cause constipation – a very real and uncomfortable problem with certain calcium supplements.
Twinlab Calcium Citrate Caps plus Magnesium go to work quickly in the stomach. Calcium and magnesium tablets, on the other hand, need binders to hold them together. Naturally, these binders may resist dissolving, so it is possible for a calcium plus magnesium tablet to pass through the digestive tract without being completely absorbed.
Twinlab Calcium Citrate Caps Plus Magnesium are easier to swallow and assimilate.
For adults, as a dietary supplement take two capsules daily, preferably with a meal.
Gelatin, croscarmellose sodium, purified water, MCT, magnesium stearate, magnesium aspartate.
No tablet binders, coatings or colorings. Free of the most common allergens such as fish, corn, soy, yeast, wheat, barley, lactose (milk sugar) and all milk and egg products. No added flavorings, sugars, salt, artificial sweeteners, preservatives or salicylates.
Keep tightly closed in a cool, dry place.
Packaged in a glass bottle for maximum stability, quality and freshness.

especially like the capsule instead of tablets. Goes down so much easier.

Contains magnesium stearate, which keeps the product from sticking to machinery during processing. I don't like that. I stopped using this calcium since I learned that it is safer to get calcium from a more natural source. I started juicing organic kale, broccoli and spinach and have noticed this is better than supplementing. Bottle is glass so be careful where you store it. Seems that if you do want to use this product that it is priced well on iherb.
good calcium supplement

For My Bones

As insurance I take this supplement for my aging bones. I try to get most of my calcium from my diet. I have no side effects. The combination of calcium with magnesium helps prevent constipation due to the calcium. The calcium citrate is better absorbed vs. the carbonate so I can take a lower dose. The price of this supplement is competitive.
