I like this product. In recent years, I've heard two different nutritionists speak at my prostate cancer support group, and they both said that you can't absorb more than about 400 mgs of calcium at a time. Any amount over that is just urinated. Since you need 1200 mgs per day, you therefore must take three doses spaced out over 24 hours. They also said calcium should be taken with vitamin D.

So, this slow release form of calcium plus D is a great way to kill three birds with one stone. At first I was bothered that you had to take two of these pills (at the same time) to get the needed 1200 mg per day dose. Then I realized two smaller pills was a good thing since it's a way to avoid one huge pill.

What bothers me, though, is this same Amazon site shows Citracal is hawking another calcium product (with "bone density builder") with claims it is a superior way to take calcium because it contains something called genistein. If genistein is indeed "clinically proven to significantly increase bone density by up to 5%," why didn't they include it in this slow release version?!!! But I'm so pleased with the time release feature, I'm not going to look this gift horse in the mouth.

The name Citracal suggests it is pure calcium citrate (as Citracal or Citracal petites are) and entices by providing the suggestion that it will take care of your calcium citrate needs for 24 hours with 1200 mg elemental calcium, the usual amount recommended for osteoporosis. But the label shows it is an unspecified combination of carbonate and citrate. This is important to know if you are only supposed to take calcium as citrate (if you are on any acid blocker or have had gastric bypass surgery, carbonate does not get absorbed well as it requires stomach acid for absorption)
Also, for cost calculations, note you have to take TWO pills, and they are big, to get the 1200mg elemental calcium.

I am still waiting for a long-acting high dose pure calcium citrate preparation. To get the same amount of elemental calcium from Citracal petites you have to take two tablets (200mg elemental each) three times a day, which is a nuisance (or take in 3-4 dairy servings daily)

This Citracal supplement is NOT calcium citrate - it is calcium CARBONATE. Do not buy if you are looking for calcium citrate.

I'm a senior citizen with medical issues which require
regular bone density scans. After I started using this
product, the improvement was obvious. It is hard to find
in pharmacies. Thanks, Amazon !

My doctor suggested I use Citracal with Calcium D Slow Release. My bones were not as strong as they should be.
Happy to report my bone density is better!

I was surprised to see that this formulary has calcium caltrate as the first ingredient. This is followed by calcium citrate. I have moved away from the caltrate, so not sure how this preparation will behave. The selling feature for me is the slow release function. It is so hard to remember to take calcium later In the day. Also, to be clear, one dose is two tabs. In looking at my centrum multivitamin, I think I will only take half of this dose and 1 multivitamin. To my knowledge vitamin D is not water solvable, so one should be careful not to get too much across sunshine, fortified foods, vitamin preparations, calcium preparations, amd of course real food.

These are not super large, or hard to swallow. They have your full day's supply of calcium. And they are less expensive than other, smaller dosages. I'm thrilled!
