Excellent!I will forever be taking this, i had osteoporosis and started this and in months it started to reverse and in 2 years i had normal bone density test readings, tried to stop and take regular calcium and test started to show osteopenia so started back on it and got back in normal range, no other calcium comes close to this one.
Ever since I discovered this calcium supplement, other brands just didn’t compare. It was a very good calcium supplement during my pregnancy with my youngest child. I noticed that his teeth were so strong and white when they finally came out. I was taking a different one with my older kids and even my own teeth were weaker then because I was also breastfeeding. With this supplement on my 3rd pregnancy, my dentist noticed a difference. So 6 years later, I’m still taking this same supplement except I now get it from iherb instead of Amazon. I noticed that the supplements I order from here are newer and expiry date is further than other sellers.
I had just watched a webinar on osteoporosis and it covered also ensuring sufficient intake of calcium. As I don’t drink milk and don’t always eat calcium-rich foods like cheese, spinach, or anchovies, I searched for a quality supplement to plug any calcium deficiency. This one contains algae calcium combined with magnesium and vitamin D which support better absorption of calcium. I also like that the capsules are easy to swallow.
These capsules are thoughtfully formulated with a blend of raw, whole-food ingredients, including plant-based calcium and essential minerals like magnesium and vitamin D3.

Whether you're looking to maintain strong bones or support overall bone health, Garden of Life Vitamin Code RAW Calcium Vegetarian Capsules provide a natural and comprehensive solution.
I have been using this brand for my calcium supplement, but have not purchased this size before. The price was super as I got it during the Labor Day sale (the larger size was out-of-stock). I like this brand because it is "clean" and has all the extra vitamins and minerals needed for good calcium absorption.
Men 25 to 70 years need 1,000 mg a day and 1,000-1,200 mg a day if they are over age 70. To get the greatest possible benefit from the calcium you take, you'll want to follow a few simple rules. Take your calcium supplements with meals, rather than alone. The calcium needs the acid from stomach juices to break it down.
After I downloaded a dietary calcium calculater I realized my "healthy" diet was lacking in the recommended daily calcium for my age. This excellent albeit pricey product comes is a capsule form that is easy to swallow. The 4 capsule dose allows me to supplement each meal with just the right amount of calcium that is recommended to achieve the daily recommended dose. Moreover, it is plant based and not made of ground up animal bones from unknown sources. I find this well formulated product to be highly digestible.
Garden of Life RAW Calcium are great vitamins. In the past, vitamins made me sick to my stomach. Also, I cannot take pills so I empty them in my mouth or, with these, I put them in my smoothie. Because they are not chemical tasting and a vegan capsule, they mix up and I can't taste them at all! It used to take hours! If at all. I feel better with vitamins and don't cringe now when I take them.
I trust this brand and have made a commitment to more natural supplements, giving up ascorbic acid for this. Just because they're vitamins we take and not drugs, it doesn't mean that they're natural. Many supplements are made in China and elsewhere, most aren't natural or can't be. Brands may need to use them but I also try now to stay away from "other ingredients" like magnesium stearate etc.
