Possibly a winner
January 9, 2013
Calcium Citrate with D will be my first purchase of this brand, DC. I've been on Calcium supplementation for a while, due to the heavy regimen I'm on for Lyme treatment. I supplement with this and other vitamins/minerals to make sure I am not deficient in any necessary nutrients otherwise leached by the ABX (antibiotics). So far, I see that you only need 1 a day, which is important when you take many pills a day on a regular basis. Also important is the purity: I've found Calcium Citrate absorbs the best for me - Calcium Carbonate, etc. does nothing.
And there are no fillers, dyes, fragrances, sugars (including all the Dextrins and Dextrose varieties), soy, yeast, or glutens (like rice flour) - that many cheaply-priced brands will employ to keep costs down,. So over time - and provided I can continue to find this brand - we'll see if this helps me maintain calcium levels or not; and of course, if they keep the formula as-is and not cheap out with any of the above ingredients, which *has* happened before with some brands I used to take long-term.
Pros:Calcium Citrate vs. other forms of Calcium that don't absorb as readily
Just one pill a day
Pure - no fillers, dyes, yeasts, sugars, glutens, or fragrances
Cons:Only that it is a new brand to me, and therefore, untested.
