DIRECTIONS: Take one chew up to three times daily or as directed by your healthcare practitioner. Take at least 2 hours apart from Iron to maximize absorption of both supplements.
Trucal® is an all-natural, Lactose free Calcium with a higher absorption rate than Calcium Carbonate, and equal too or greater than Calcium Citrate. Unlike other Calcium forms, Trucal® offers a balanced profile of essential minerals and antioxidants. (All the healthy parts of milk with very low lactose) thus, making Trucal® the superior choice for achieving your optimal bone health. Like Calcium Citrate, TruCal does not require stomach acid for absorption, is non-constipating, does not increase the risk for kidney stones, and doesn't need to be consumed with food; making TruCal a comparable, if not more complete, Calcium option than Calcium Citrate.
