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.
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.
I use this regularly: just add it to any dish or beverage. No taste.
This is great. I can’t take the pills they make me sick. This goes down smooth and gets the job done.
I love these packets. I can grab and go and out them in almost any drink. I never forget my calcium now. No taste whatsoever. SCORE!!!
Have been using since my gastric sleeve surgery a year and a half ago. Calcium levels have been great.
I was concerned the first time I tried to use this product because it did not completely dissolve as I expected it to. After reading more about it, I learned that it isn’t suppose to dissolve completely. I now pour a little bit on my tongue at a time and it works GREAT!
