Vitacost Super Bone Plus(t) -- 120 Tablets
Horrible side taste&smell
These tablets have a horrible smell and taste to them. To me they smell artificial and somehow like a chemical. I have never had a supplement with such a side smell and taste before. But this is the first time I have taken Ca supplement from algae. I wonder if it's characteristic of it. It makes it appear very unhealthy to me. I barely can get myself to take these so I don't know if and how they work otherwise.I love other products from Vitacost such as their probiotics, multi vitamins and minerals etc.

Very well tolerated
I have taken many calc/mag bone building supplements over the years and nothing compares to algae-based ones. My bone mineral density is up and I get no laxative effects from this type of magnesium. And the price is right.

Does not upset your digestion
I find that only vegetable based calcium is easier to digest. Other types of calcium will constipate me.Vitacaost Super Bone is less expensive than other brand of vegetable based calcium. Why pay more?

Because, it is all in one it is easy to take. However, research shows calcium and strontium have similar absorption pattern. It is recommended to take these two minerals separately. Maybe the super bone formula could contain a small bottle of strontium.

What other formulas miss
This has all the trace elements that only the most expensive formulas provide, but without the high cost.
