    I've taken calcium supplements for several years to offset osteopenia and have tried both pills and chews, containing both calcium carbonate and citrate. The chews were convenient to carry and easy to take, but there were times when I just didn't want something that sweet. Plus, it was easy to forget to take them because I couldn't keep them in my pill box with my other meds/supplements--and that meant that sometimes I took them without food so they probably weren't as well absorbed. I also tried calcium citrate pills, which don't require you take them with food, but was put off by the extra number of pills I had to take and the added cost. I like this product because I can take 2 pills with breakfast and be done with it for the day--one dose means I rarely forget to take them and since you're supposed to take them with breakfast, taking them with food is no issue. I also have had no side effects from calcium carbonate, as mentioned in another review. The only reason I didn't give this product 5 stars is because I'd prefer they be made with 100% calcium citrate instead of a mix of the two, and they are a bit pricey. Also, there's no way to know for sure whether they are more or less effective than other types of calcium supplements that require multiple doses throughout the day.

    I take calcium for my osteoporosis, and have used other Citrical products because they are very digestible. I was disappointed to find that the slow release contain calcium carbonate and I am experiencing terrible flatulence from it. I had no problems with citrical petites or regular because they are made from calcium citrate. Just a word to the wise, if you like convenience from once a day, go ahead, but beware of unpleasant side effects.

      You get a lot of Calcium with only 2 pills with food. It's convenient not to have to think about taking more throughout the day. The pills are not small...so if you can't swallow them try the Citrical 'Petites'. You'll have to take more pills, but you won't choke.[Had a broken bone heal in good time...so I'm guesing it's effective...but who can tell?]

        This really helps with daily compliance since it is once a day and I know I have a full day of calcium on board. Great product.

            I don't know how to tell when Calcium is effective...I guess if you don't break any bones. Well...I have to take a lot of Calcium, and so far this way....2 tabs each morning...is the easiest and most convenient way to attain this goal. Folks who have trouble swallowing pills will probably appreciate the Citrical 'Petites'...even though you have to take them twice a day.
