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.

    My doctor recommends a daily calcium and this slow-release tablet is much more convenient to take than spreading out the regular calcium doses- like you should.

            My doctor told me about these because all other calcium supplements upset my stomach and made me constipated. I don't have any side effects from these. I have been using these for a few years now. I take 2 every night.

              I was not good at remebering to take calcium supplements twice a day so when this once a day supplement came on the market, I was delighted.
