Calcium Citrate Carbonate/Malate
With calcium supplements, it's hard to know if they're doing what you hope. Calcium citrate magnate recommended; so I am trying this.

This seems to be working okay. It is necessary to take 4 a day, down from the 6 I was taking of another brand. I plan to shop more with Swanson brands the next time I buy a calcium supplement. I would likely recommend it, however, Iam still looking for one where I do not have to swallow so many capsules!

This seems to be a good product for me. I've had issues with digesting some other calciums but have not encountered any issues with this one. It arrived promptly as always from this company.

How come they left the fact that there is calcium carbonate as the second ingredient in this? Carbonate is not even close to being absorbable as citrate or malate so how can you be getting 250mg of calcium citrate per pill if 2 pills is equal to 500mg?

Great combo of ingredients
Calcium has always been a good choice for bones, but I read where calcium citrate/malate is more effective in maintaining bone mass. As you get older you need to give your bones all the help you can.

Best value in the Natures Way line of calcium supplements. Easy to swallow capsules and only required two twice daily versus three twice daily on others. My multivitamin takes care of everything else without repurchasing with another supplement.
