Calcium Citrate tablets, provided by Douglas Laboratories, supplies 250 mg of elemental calcium from calcium citrate. Calcium is a primary mineral for building the strong structure of bones and teeth. Calcium Citrate tablets may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to increase their intake of calcium for maintaining the function and structure of their bones. It is generally accepted that obtaining enough dietary calcium throughout life can significantly decrease the risk of developing osteoporosis. Among other factors, such as regular exercise, gender and race, calcium supplementation during childhood and adolescence appears to be a prerequisite for maintaining adequate bone density later in life. But even elderly osteoporotic patients can benefit significantly from supplementation with dietary calcium. Calcium citrate is a highly available and well tolerated form of calcium.
