Have been using this product for about 2 years. I used to have significant light sensitivity to daytime sun and night time car lights. My eyes used to hurt when they were exposed to bright lights-I had to put on sunglasses before going outside since I could barely keep my eyes open. My eyes were also dry and burned with exposure to bright lights. I highly recommend this product as well as Nordic Naturals fish oil capsules if you are experiencing similar problems, which were obviously related to nutritional deficiencies which are corrected by this formula. At times I have run out of this formula, and the aforementioned problems begin to return. So now I make sure I don't run out of it. Also highly recommend the iherb website, since they provide quick efficient delivery and better prices than my local stores.

June 3, 2015: This is a good product, however it contains 2,000 mg of vitamin D, which I did not realize until I developed symptoms of vitamin D toxicity and was recently diagnosed with vitamin D toxicity via a blood test. This is a high level of this vitamin, so be sure to check your vitamin D intake from ALL of your health products and have your vitamin D level checked regularly as recommended by your doctor. I have had to stop taking this and all supplements contain vitamin D for now.

September 14, 2013: Tiny softgel, easy to swallow and digest. Made with cold pressed olive oil. Omits allergens. It is my understanding that Low vitamin D is implicated in a variety of cancers and is important for calcium absorption and preventing osteoporosis. Many nutritional experts recommend people who do not spend a lot of time in the sun should take and can safely take at least 5000 units per day. Note the amount of this vitamin present in your other supplements and adjust your intake accordingly. Your doctor can check your vitamin D level. I take it in divided doses with calcium 3x day. Happy with this product. Update: June 3, 2015. I have had to stop taking this product for now because I developed symptoms of vitamin D toxicity, as was verified by my doctor checking my vitamin D level. Make sure you check the vitamin D levels in ALL the supplements you take, including those you drink, which I failed to do. Also, the 5000 units recommended by some nutritional experts does not apply to everyone and appears to be too much for me.

This is one of my favorites. I prefer to dilute it and add stevia. Tastes like a wonderful, cold lemon flavored tea. It helps to regulate digestive function and gets me to drink more healthy fluids.
I enjoy the flavor of this product. It is one of my Trace Minerals favorites.

Use this product as an alternative to chewable calcium citrate because it does not contain magnesium, since too much magnesium taken too frequently gives me a laxative effect. Does not upset my stomach. I Combine this product with Twinlab calcium citrate caps that contain some magnesium, which enhances absorption. Have been told that menopausal women need at least 1500 mg of calcium per day to prevent osteoporosis and that it is best absorbed if taken in three divided doses with additional vitamin D. Perhaps another reviewer could comment on what they have been told about the calcium needs of men.
One of several Trace Minerals products that I enjoy.
Love the taste of this product and drink it daily.

Does not irritate my stomach the way other calcium tablets/ liquids do, even on an empty stomach. Does not cause constipation. Menopausal females should take 1500 mg of calcium per day, spaced out in three separate doses, 2 tablets at a time. The body can supposedly only absorb 500 mg at a time. I find that I must wait at least 1 1/2 hours between 500 mg doses or I will experience the opposite of constipation the next day. Also recommend 680 mg Strontium at least 2 hours after last dose, before sleep, which can prevent & reverse osteoporosis.
One of my favorites. I add it to cereal and diluted herbal drinks.
