Rated 5 out of 5 by Reada I am happy to have found a type of calcium that seems most suitable to my needs. It is not your everyday calcium, but of course I was able to find it on Swansons! I won't know for many decades how truly effective it is, but I feel better about making a thoughtful choice in terms of absorption and source.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LumbeeIndian Great Calcium!
This Calcium supplement is very good. I am pleased with the results my husband and I have gleaned. Feel stronger in the joints and teeth have responded well, also! Absorbs better than other forms of calcium, and that is a win-win!

Rated 4 out of 5 by TiriMoo best absorbable form of cal for us
I researched to find that orotate is best absorbable form for body. My 8 yr old takes magnesium, zinc, & b6 liquid combo so he needs calcium. He actually prefers the capsule or liquid (even liquid fish oil, not chewables)but l wish it came in liquid, which is better absorbed. Gelatin from capsule does not line up with my "natural" supplemental forms but will continue using til l find liquid cal orotate. Seems to be effective but l cant tell (1 month use), just know the body needs this. Product seems to meet needs w/o extra additives other than gelatin cap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VitaminAddict7 Works well
Calcium orotate is the best absorbed form of calcium and I take this with magnesium,d3 and boron. It really seems to be working well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gNomad very good
Orotate is the way to go for most everything, calcium is difficult to get bio-available- this gets taken up very well

I learned that calcium orotate is more effectively absorbed and so I chose it over other calcium supplements.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CindyK75 Great Product
This calcium orotate is an excellent product, I just wish there were more pills in one bottle with a reasonable price attached. My husband and I are taking this product but having to take 2 each day (4 total for both) we run out quickly. I bought 4 bottles but we're plowing through them quickly! I cannot find this locally and I really like only taking 2 a day vs. 4 or 6 of other brands. Please make larger quantity!

Rated 4 out of 5 by NocturnalNancy Too strong for me
I am a small woman and this calcium was too strong for me. It made me feel sick and taste metal. I had to pour out half the capsule and then take it, which is a pain. My knees felt amazing with it though. But then my stomach started burning a lot. In all fairness I am very allergic to vit C and sulfur, so there is a possibility of a cross reaction from the processing required to make this calcium. It is one of the best calciums you can take and if it was in a half dose and my stomach didn't hurt, I would so be taking it every day faithfully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Trekkie14 Orotate Form
Calcium seems to be the most difficult mineral to get the body to absorb, and of the alkaline minerals (after potassium) we need a considerable amount of calcium.
There's been a whole lotta hype about how to get calcium into the bloodstream. FORGET about the CITRATE and CARBONATE FORMS - use the orotate form/s instead!
If you want hard evidence, start doing PH testing of your urine and with the different forms of calcium, checking each form... If you read up on Alkalizing the body, you'll learn a lot about minerals and urine testing is explained etc. Swanson's sell PH Testing tape...
Carbonate and citric forms of calcium barely make a dent for me - I started the orotate form (2 a day) and my alkaline level (absorption level) went right up! I figure I could have only been absorbing about 20% of the citrate form (taken with acidic meals) and must be absorbing a good 90% or more of the orotate. There is no comparison, and I'll never buy anything but the orotate form again.. This mineral is to important to neglect like that!
Swanson's has done an excellent job with this product (and their other orotate minerals).
