Product Description

Size: 240 Caplets

Regular exercise and a healthy diet with enough calcium helps teen and young adult white and Asian women maintain good bone health and may reduce their high risk of osteoporosis later in life. Adequate calcium intake is important, but daily intakes above about 2000 mg are not likely to provide any additional benefit.

The other reviewer was relating his body's reaction to this product, not the actual quality of the product. I have been using this for 4 years in one form or another. I noticed that the first thing that happened was my nails became strong and grew like gang busters! That is a reaction to the product that was a plus for me. I went to the Doctor for my last bone scan and my bones have not gotten any worse and even though barely measurable have actually improved slightly. I can not take the other drugs for density improvement due to side effects and this is at least helping me. This product does what it says it does in the least expensive way. It is much better than the other calcium products that I have tried and that is a lot of them. I could not be happier.

The bottle I received has "D3" instead of just "D" on it. The caplet is big but swallow (I take with one gulp of water) very smoothly (I could not do same with centrum), without food, without any symptom of bloating or constipation. The calcium and vit D content in this formulation is perfectly right for my required daily intake (630mg Ca and 500 IU vitD in each caplet). The amt of calcium packed into this caplet is impressive, and the citrate form is "supposedly" easy to absorb. Kudos to Bayer scientists.

I was on Citracal for years, then went to Caltrate Slow Release thinking it made sense, but my complexion became very rough with frequent break-outs. So I went back to Calcium Citrate (Citracal) petites and within a few days my complexion was back to its normal clear, smooth soft condition. Calcium is great for healthy, lovely skin, not just bone density. I'm sticking with Citrical with D3 and adding some magnesium from now on. The petites are much easier to swallow, but you do have to take 2 pills twice a day for maximum benefits. I understand there is a calcium citrate in the slow release dosage, so I might venture out and try that, but the Caltrate Slow release really let me down.

This is the only brand of calcium supplement I use. It contains the type of calcium that is most readily absorbed, plus it has D3 included so I don't need a separate supplement for it.

Additionally, calcium is absorbed more readily with the addition of vitamin D so that is why it's a good reason to get them both together.

Ingredients: 500 IU of vitamin D
650 mg of Calcium (calcium citrate)
10 mg sodium

You must take two of these a day to get the daily requirement that most people believe provides optimum health for bones. And it is best to space out the doses for maximum absorption. The extra amount of D3 you are getting per day with two of these probably is better for you than a lessor amount would be also, from what the latest studies show.

I think the price for these here is reasonable. I will keep buying these on Amazon.

Strange, but after using this product for a while I noticed that my nails have hardened and rarely break on the sides of the nail (I used to have soft, bendable nails that broke easily), so if it is helping my nails (and this is visible to the eye), I know it is helping my bones. The vitamin "D" in it is a plus!

Because I have a medical problem, two of my doctors have told me to double the dosage, so I take four pills a day (four or more hours apart between each one). . . but the "regular" dosage is "two pills" a day, which is what everyone should take, according to instructions on the bottle.

I take these pills because two doctors that have seen me recommends them at the "unusual" dosage that I take. I have been taking them for several years.

A few years ago, I was taking Citracal plus "magnesium", but the magnesium in it was not suitable for my body and I had a type of allergic reaction: losing some hair. So I stopped taking the "plus magnesium" one. But that was my personal issue, and the Plus Magnesium one might be just fine for mostly everyone else.

If you have loss of bones I also recommend drinking plenty of Perrier or (my favorite) San Pellegrino because both contain calcium in it. I gave up Cola products and caffeinated drinks. Surprising to me, drinking the San Pellegrino, I have found out that I do not even miss the cola products . . . personally, what I liked about the cola products was the CARBONATION, not the sugar (this surprised me when I switched to Perrier and San Pellegrino. So I got what I craved for, without the sugar in it. I also drink decaf GREEN TEA (iced or hot) and plenty of bottled plain water.

I love "Citracal MAXIMUM" and I highly recommend them.

I started taking these when my previous preferred brand was discontinued - I took the number of pills needed to be taking an equivalent amount to what I had been taking previously.... I would NOT recommend, however. This might be fine for nomal folks, but I have had bariatric surgery and have shortened small intestines and have special needs for high calcium intake. My calcium levels were doing fine for the last 4 years... I switched to this brand of calcium, and within 4 months I was having "butt burn" (a sign of not enough calcium making it into the intestines to absorb and neutralize bile), and my lab results showed low calcium and high PTH (a sign of your body robbing calcium from your bones and teeth).

I've switched to UPCAL D calcium packets and have had an almost immediate reversal of the negative effects of low calcium. These supplements might be fine for normal folks, but beware to those with special needs like bariatric patients.
