Bought these because my prenatals do not have calcium and magnesium. These pills do not have a taste or smell because of their gelatin capsule. The size is relatively small compared to typical Calcium supplements, however you need to take 3 at a time. The bottle actually says 3 capsules twice daily. I'm on the fence about repurchasing.
The tablets and dose per tablet are slightly smaller than the ones from NOW (which is 500mg calcium per tablet, and contains magnesium similarly), so more tablets need to be taken. But this also means that I can adjust the dose better in accordance with the estimated dietary calcium intake to hit 1,200mg/day (Note that this is my needed dose, everyone’s RDI varies depending on your life stage, age and lifestyle needs), spread out over the day.
Side / sensitivity effects: none so far.
Would recommend it if you have difficulty with much larger tablets.
Great quality supplement. Ive been looking for this brand and i found it only in iherb. Capsule is right in size not too big and easy to swallow. Good packaging arrived on time. Helps me with my sleep and joints.
My son has Gauchers Disease, which affects his bone density. I have been giving him this twice a day for years and it's kept his osteopenia from advancing to osteoporosis. I started taking it myself a few years before I hit menopause, and continue to take it to keep my bones strong. The dosage is convenient and effective, twice a day!
