“El Carbonato de Calcio me produce estreñimiento y molestias gastrointestinales. Por otro lado, en la mayoría de las marcas, las tabletas son demasiado grandes y ásperas. Muy difícil de tragar. Prefiero el Citrato de Calcio que se absorbe más rápido, no produce estreñimiento y las tabletas vienen recubiertas. Fáciles de tomar. Uso la marca Citralgel que viene también con Vitamina D Calcium Carbonate causes constipation and gastrointestinal discomfort. On the other hand, in most brands, the tablets are too large and rough. Very hard to swallow. I prefer Calcium Citrate that is absorbed faster, does not produce constipation and the tablets are coated. Easy to drink I use the Citralgel brand that also comes with Vitamin D”
