Thorne Research Calcium Citrate supports bone health.
Calcium bound to citric acid is a well-absorbed form of calcium. Citric acid is a naturally occurring organic acid that is able to efficiently bind three mineral molecules for every one of its own molecules. Studies have shown significantly more calcium is absorbed in the body from calcium citrate than from calcium carbonate. One study found patients with low hydrochloric acid levels absorbed an average of 10 times more calcium from citrate than from carbonate.
Calcium Bound to Citrate for Enhanced Absorption
- Better absorbed than calcium carbonate
- A key nutrient for bone health
- Improved absorption in individuals with low stomach acid
- Without preservatives, magnesium stearate, or other lubricants and diluents
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, adequate calcium throughout life, as part of a well-balanced diet and physical activity, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis later in life.
