    Excellent Product

    Easy way to get your daily calcium. Dissolves easily and has no taste. I add it to any drink, yogurt, oatmeal, almost anything at every meal. Lab results are excellent!

    Did not dissolve well

    I couldn’t get this to dissolve completely. It was chalky and difficult to drink immediately post op from
    SADI-S. I’m planning to try again when I’m further out.

    Best Summer Calcium Supplement

    I have tried so many different calcium products since having gastric bypass. I would rank these powder packets 2nd after the ProCare Calcium Dark Chocolate. The Mocktails/Dinner Mint/Cinnamon Roll chews came in 3rd. The chocolate can't be shipped in the summer due to melting risk so this is a great alternative. They're all fantastic products and worth trying.
