|CITRACAL® + D is unique because it is calcium citrate, a highly soluble and absorbable form of calcium that allows the active calcium to be absorbed into your blood.|
The combination of these two properties is called bioavailability. The greater the bioavailability of calcium, the better your body is able to use it.
Unlike other forms of calcium such as calcium carbonate and calcium phosphate, calcium citrate does not require stomach acid to be absorbed. This means CITRACAL® + D can be taken with or without food. CITRACAL® + D is the logical calcium supplement choice to make if you are taking antacids or other medications used to reduce stomach acid. In addition to the ability of CITRACAL® + D to be absorbed at anytime (with or without meals), CITRACAL® + D has many other advantages.
CITRACAL® + D does not produce gas, thus avoiding bloating and discomfort. CITRACAL® + D is non-constipating. Clinical studies show that postmenopausal women who take CITRACAL® + D maintain the mass and thickness of their bones.
It is important to know that the companies that make the current prescription medications used to prevent and treat osteoporosis recommend that women get 1000-1500 milligrams of calcium a day. CITRACAL® + D is a great source of calcium to help maximize the benefits from these therapies. CITRACAL® + D is an important part of any osteoporosis prevention and treatment program.
If you have an inflammatory condition like rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, or inflammatory bowel disease, your therapy probably includes a steroid. One of the side effects of steroid therapy is bone loss, which can eventually lead to osteoporosis.
