I started taking Citrical after my mom broke most of the bones in her foot after a bad fall (required surgery to repair). I tried taking different brands and types of calcium on and off, but they always seemed to make me feel sick to my stomach afterward. Citrical Petites is a great supplement, no sickness, can take with or without food. I take one in the morning with coffee and one with dinner. It's a great product I would recommend to anyone concerned with maintaining good bone health.

Decided to try a new calcium supplement. Thought these would do the trick since they are described as easily absorbed and "petite." If these are the petite tablets, I would hate to see the regular ones. The special coating does not help me get them down. I have yet to succeed, mostly because they are so thick.

I am including two pictures of the tablets in relation to a penny for other first time customers.

      These petites are so easy to swallow and an excellent source of calcium for bone health. My doctors recommended calcium supplements many years ago, and I have been taking Citracal every day since. I think it's the best and my doctors like it too.

              I recently learned that I should not eat dairy products, which had been my main source of calcium. I was thrilled to find a petite sized tablet, because I have trouble with big pill sizes. But these "petite" pills are small in length only--they are very thick and even cutting them in half, were hard to swallow.

                            Like other reviewers, I love the size of this calcium supplement. It's so much easier to swallow. I only take calcium citrate as I've read articles saying it's the most effective in terms of helping maintain good levels of calcium as opposed to calcium carbonate.

                              Citracal Calcium Citrate with Vitamin D Petites, Coated Tablets

                               – Many health experts advise their patients that strong, healthy bones can help everyone to stay active and live life to the fullest. If your doctor has told you that you need a calcium supplement to help promote bone health, Citracal Calcium Citrate with Vitamin D Petites Coated Tablets may be an ideal choice as they are simple to take and easy to incorporate into your daily routine.

                              The Calcium Citrate Difference



                              Not all calcium supplements contain the same form of calcium. Two Citracal Calcium Citrate with Vitamin D Petites Coated Tablets provide the body with 400 milligrams of calcium citrate, a form of calcium that is very soluble, highly absorb-able and found only in Citracal products. In addition to calcium citrate, a two-capsule dose contains 500 IU of vitamin D3.

                              Simple to Swallow and to Digest



                              Citracal Calcium Citrate with Vitamin D Petites Coated Tablets are made for those who struggle with taking pills and tablets. The tablets are reduced in size to make them easy to swallow, yet they still provide a significant dose of calcium and vitamin D3. A special coating on the tablets may help with efficacy. This also makes the supplements easy to digest and gives you the freedom to take them with or without food.

                              The Brand Often Recommended by Pharmacists



                              Citracal is one of the most pharmacist-recommended brands of calcium supplements on the market due to the unique form of calcium used in each formula. The brand is part of the Bayer family of products, which have been helping people lead healthier lives since 1863. Citracal Calcium Citrate with Vitamin D Petites Coated Tablets may help simplify supplementation and are formulated with quality in mind to give you the best possible results.
