I should have switched to this petite pill a long time ago! very easy to swallow. The content of this calcium seems very absorbable. I might switch all my family member's calcium pills to this petite size because everybody has complained about having a gigantic calcium pill stuck inside his/her throat.
I really like the Citracal brand of calcium and have used various calcium supplements through the years. I also like the petites as some calcium tablets are very large and harder to swallow and these are also coated. I feel I receive the best benefits from this particular brand of calcium especially because they include vitamin D3.
The petite size makes it easy to swallow. I have once nearly choked on another brand of calcium tablet but I have no issues with this one. But it would even be better if it contains more calcium and less vitamin D so that it can provide the recommended amount of calcium and vitamin D required for the general population.
I need to take calcium in calcium citrate form and chose these. I'm not sure I'd consider them petite though. Most people would find these to be pretty large. They may be thinner than other calcium pills and they have a coating that makes them easier to swallow so they're not too bad. I just expected something labelled petite to be smaller than these are. Overall though I'm pleased with the quality of the product and will continue taking them. I'm here to buy more.
I put off using Vit. D3 after a lot going on in my life. Now, after a wake-up call I'm dedicated to taking this twice daily after having Ostepenia [which is beginning of get bone loss] after a Dexscan. It's great to find the petite sized here since in PA at most stores they dont carry this size. This D3 Calcium Citrtate is the most bioavailable form of Calcium one can use so it works best utilized in our body, being a nurse and know this.
Back on the Vit D wagon and going to build my bones at nearly 64 and take care of me now.
