TWINLAB Calcium Citrate is a a great tasting chewable calcium citrate wafer that also supplies highly-absorbable amounts of critical calcium co-factors magnesium and vitamin D. 4 wafers supply 1000 mg of elemental calcium. For best utilization and absorption, it's very important to take the 4 wafers spread out over the course of the day versus all at once. And as always is the case with calcium and most minerals, you should take Twinlab Calcium Citrate Wafers with some solid food.
Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body, and 99 percent of it is stored in the bones and teeth, where it helps to provide structural support. But calcium doesn't work alone - magnesium and Vitamin D have been found to be essential co-factors in calcium metabolism and bone-building. The body uses Vitamin D to help absorb the calcium you consume. And research shows that adequate calcium and Vitamin D intake throughout life as part of a healthful diet, along with physical activity, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis in later life. Magnesium also helps to support strong bones, and optimal levels of this important mineral can help support calcium metabolism in the body.
Twinlab Calcium Citrate Chewable Wafers contain a soluble and chelated form of calcium that is easily absorbed. This makes them a great calcium supplement for children and adults with low levels of stomach acid, those who have difficulty swallowing and digesting large calcium tablets, or for individuals with greater calcium needs. Our formula contains a 2:1 ratio of calcium to magnesium. We've also doubled the serving of Vitamin D3 to 800 IU of vitamin D (per adult serving) to aid in calcium absorption. Double the Vitamin D3 and a great new flavor, all in a wafer that's 40% smaller than before.
