Citrate is so much easier to digest and it is not made of rocks.

I use powder form calcium citrate, which I add to water and drink. One less pill to swallow, and it absorbs easily.

Raw calcium made of algae as a supplement as body recognizes as food although food is best source. Calcium carbonate is made of rocks and limestone and only 40% absorbable, citrate is 20% absorbable.

I agree judy that's why I only take 500 mg of the algae and get the rest from my food… Just a little extra insurance

MaryRose Waller 3 years

Did the research as per Save Our Bones Program.... Raw calcium is just like food... Other types are inorganic and can cause artery plaque formation and heart attacks!

Alexander Ouellette 3 years

Zach Peahi no take raw calcium and calcium rich foods.

Yes it is! It's also good to supplement with raw calcium to ensure you get all other bone essential minerals.

Judy Sams if you get a minute look at new chapter bone strength.... That is what i have been taking for years.... İ want to see what you think.

MaryRose Waller I think it is a good choice! For just a few dollars more you can get Garden of Life Raw Calcium on Amazon. The difference is that it has probiotics and enzymes in it and also raw fruits and veggies. As you get older the body no longer is able to digest and absorb the nutrients as well and probiotics and enzymes help to ensure that. Most diseases start in the gut and that is why what we eat is so important.

Judy Sams 3 years

Yes I do take renew life probiotics 100 billion

judy I was just looking at my unsweetened almond milk… It has calcium carbonate in it. I drink about a cup a day. I wonder if that's really bad

Garden of Life raw calcium has so many other ingredients- I'm not keen on silica or strontium and I like taking my powder magnesium and getting boron from prunes, etc etc ; are there any other products with calcium from algae without all the other stuff?

Terri Griffith

Such small amounts of silica and strontium to be of any value

MaryRose Waller 3 years

The strontium in it is derived from algae. It won't hurt you. All the other bone essential nutrients in it will help.

K2 prevents the artery problem.
