Our Calcium Citrate Chewables were designed to meet the calcium replacement needs of patients. Our Calcium Citrate chewable can be chewed or allowed to dissolve in the mouth. This allows patients to get the calcium they need without swallowing large or multiple pills. Calcium citrate, the form preferred by bariatric surgeons, is the sole calcium source in the product. It also provides Vitamin D, Vitamin K and a small amount of magnesium, all for the support of bone health. Our Chewables are designed to be easy on the digestive system, to support maximum absorption and to foster compliance. For patients taking our iron, we suggest that they take calcium and iron at least two hours apart.
Some features and benefits of this product include:
100% Calcium Citrate. Each Calcium Citrate chewable contains 500 milligrams of elemental calcium from calcium citrate. Calcium citrate is highly soluble and is appropriate for many individuals.
Vitamin K is a fat-soluble nutrient that is important for bone health as it plays a role in three proteins that are vital to bone health. The best known of these proteins is Osteocalcin, which plays a critical role in bone remodeling. Patients may not consume adequate dark green vegetables to assure good dietary intakes.
Many chewable calcium products rely on candy bases as delivery systems. Leading brands provide 3 to 4 grams of sugars from corn syrup and high-fructose corn syrup – or up to 8 grams of concentrated sweeteners in a daily dose. Our chewables are sweetened with a minimal amount of low-glycemic, crystalline fructose. Moreover, individuals on severely carbohydrate restricted diets, really count those grams each day. Our formula meets the needs of these patients without compromising taste and quality.
