Solgar Calcium Citrate with Vitamin D3 Description
Calcium is an essential mineral needed every day for proper health. 99% of the body's calcium can be found in the bones. This mineral provides the building blocks that help keep bones and teeth strong and healthy. In addition, calcium helps to support the health of other systems in the body, including the colon, heart, musculoskeletal and nervous systems, and is a component of enzymes that are required for blood clotting. This formulation contains Vitamin D3 to promote calcium absorption.
When combined with a healthy diet and physical activity, calcium may reduce the risk of osteoporosis.
As a dietary supplement for adults, take four (4) tablets daily, preferably with a meal. May be distributed throughout the day, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.

Solgar Calcium Citrate with Vitamin D3 -- 120 Tablets
Pricey but GREAT!
This is the Calcium you want. Pretty much all of Solgars products are priced on the high side, some closer to outrageous, but their quality is never in question. I want Calcium without any Magnesium-as some studies suggest they compete for the same receptor in the body and could thus inhibit absorption. I had my eye on some of the "leading comercial brands" but after reading the ingredients and seeing polyethaline glycol..i panicked..isn't that a constituent of anti freeze?!?!I'm no chemical expert, but erring on the side of caution i decided to pay a little more and play it safe. So there you have it, pure Calcium Citrate with a generous dose of D for absorption..and that tablets just glide down with ease. Almost perfect..better price would put it at 5 stars. At least Vitacost prices it reasonable.
