My Gyno recommended this as an alternative to Fosamax based on new studies that show Fosamax only adds a layer of bonelike material on top of compromised weak foundation; Whereas the genistein in this product has been shown to actually regrow bone from the inside. Soy products are pretty amazing. Based on new science. I'll give it a try for a year, have my bone density tested, and see what happens......

I am a regular citracal consumer and I buy it because it is calcium citrate (hence the citra-cal name) and not calcium carbonate which does a number on me. I bought this without closely checking it out because citracal is citracal, right? Wrong. The first ingredient is calcium carbonate. Unfortunately I didn't notice until I had opened it. Waste of money.

Comments about Citracal Calcium + D Plus Bone Density Builder, Coated Tablets, 120 ea:

I have or had acute osteoporosis. My doctor recommended this product. I take two tablets twice a day. I also take Actonel once a week and 50,000 units of Vitamin D once a week. This combination has improved my Dexa Scan results for the past three years. The first year my doctor thought she was looking at someone else's test results. It worked for me. Talk with your physician. It may work for you.

    • Older People

    Comments about Citracal Calcium + D Plus Bone Density Builder, Coated Tablets, 120 ea:

    I had taken these pills before along with additional generic calcium. My bone density went up almost 10%. I do not know if these pills played a role in my bone density test, I just have to assume they did. I stopped taking these because of the cost and I regretted it ever since. Had another bone density test (2 years later) and lost bone this time. I went back on these pills in the hopes my bone density will go back up on my next test which isn't until August 2015. I will caution. These pills are easy on the stomach if you take with food. If you don't take them with food, you will get an upset stomach. Because of the good results from my first bone density test, I would recommend these.

              This product caused acid reflux. It also cannot be taken with some blood pressure medicines. I believe the regular citracal is much better even if you need to take it several times per day.

              Comments about Citracal Calcium + D Plus Bone Density Builder, Coated Tablets, 120 ea:

              I starting using Citracal instead of the perscription drug perscribed by my doctor following a bone density test that revealed lower than desirable results. I haven't had another test yet but I can say that my back and neck pain is gone, and overall I feel more flexible. In fact, I have no bone or joint discomfort at all. I believe this product works and I expect to receive good readings from the next bone density test.
