Calcium citrate-malate is an easily absorbed and well-tolerated form of calcium. Calcium is an essential mineral required for healthy bone formation. Calcium bound to citric acid and malic acid results in the calcium compound, calcium citrate-malate. This form of calcium has been shown to have a superior benefit compared to many calcium supplements as it allows for 40% more calcium absorption than calcium carbonate or milk. Calcium citrate-malate is easily digested and absorbed equally well with or without food. Calcium is the basic bone-building mineral required by the body.
Adequate calcium intake every day, over a lifetime, is important for maintaining sufficient bone density as we age and reducing risk for osteoporosis, a progressive bone disease leading to fragile, porous bones. Risk for osteoporosis is also influenced by age, sex, race, exercise, and many other dietary and lifestyle choices. Calcium citrate-malate is suitable for those individuals seeking a reliable, cost-effective source of calcium to enhance dietary intake. This product should be used in conjuction with a healthy diet and exercise program.
