Product InformationOs-Cal tablets are smaller than Citracal tablets, yet they deliver about 60% more elemental calcium than Citracal (500 mg Os-Cal vs. 315 mg Citracal). Os-Cal is calcium carbonate, the most concentrated form of calcium, so you'll need only two Os-Cal tablets daily, as opposed to three or four Citracal tablets. Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium, which helps to reduce age-related bone loss and bone fractures related to osteoporosis. The body produces its own vitamin D through exposure to sunlight, but that process slows down as a person ages. As we age, we tend to reduce our exposure to sunlight, so we need to increase our consumption of vitamin D to enhance calcium absorption.
Here are some very good reasons to choose Os-Cal:
It is made from Oyster Shell, a 100% natural, organic source of calcium
It has Vitamin D, proven to enhance calcium absorption
Contains no lactose, no added sugar or sodium
Calcium is essential to maintaining total body health. Your body needs it every day not just to keep your bones and teeth strong over your lifetime, but to ensure proper functioning of muscles and nerves. It even helps your blood clot.
Most Americans think they are getting enough calcium every day, but the fact is that they are not -- they're calcium deficient. That's why the Surgeon General of the United States just released important findings aimed at improving bone health.
Taking calcium regularly every day is key to preventing and treating calcium deficiency, and calcium supplements like Os-Cal can be an easy way to meet your daily calcium needs.
