Calcium Citrate - which tastes best?



Recommended Posts

Anyone try the New Calcet Calcium Creamy Lemon Bites? I ordered some online last night. The marketing says they taste like little squares of lemon pound cake. Hmmm:001_unsure:... we'll have to see about that. I am not convinced but willing to try anything to get my calcium in.

I haven't tried them, but I'll be keeping my eye out for your review once you receive them.

I haven't added any Calcium supplments to my diet and my labs showed my calcium was normal, so I am guessing that between my diet and my multi-vitamins, I'm getting enough calcium at this time.

I take Bariatric Advantage -chewable Multivitamin and mineral formula

I tried the lemon and DID NOT like it, so now I use the watermelon- I take 2 a day.

Then i take Bariatric Advantage Dry Vitamin D 5000iu- 2 a day

Once a week ( on Mondays ) I take Bariatric Advantage sublingual B12

And I take hair, Skin, and Nails

Biotin/Collagen/Gelatin Spring Valley Vitamins.-take 3 only once a day.

I had added Calcium early, but Labs were all so good I quit. I'll get the results back from my labs next week.... so will see what both my doctors say.

Forgot to mention that I also use liquid minoxidil for Hair growth. After I was my hair in the morning I put it on the trouble spots then just dry my hair like normal. When I come home at night I use it again before going to bed, and i can see a difference.

Okay - for anyone interested. The Calcet Calcium Creamy Lemon Bites are not half bad. Pretty tasty I thought. A bit difficult to open since they are individual wrapped in blister packs. They advertising them as tasting like lemon pound cake. I thought they tasted more like lemon pound cake batter. I think 40cal is a bit high for me to take 3 times a day, but a nice change from some of my other calcium options and will definitely have a least one a day. :(

I get my calcium citrate from vitacost.com

They are chewable and don't taste that bad. You can get so many things there, and the prices are fabulous. the shipping is the same no matter how much you order. I think it's 4.99

THank you for the website, I just ordered my Calcium Citrate

Chewable orange/vanilla flavored.

I think it's important to take Calcium no matter what the labs show now. Having a loss in calcium later on in life can have devastating effects. My friend's mom has broken her pelvis, leg and arm. Each time was because she slipped an fell, but they told her that her bones were very brittle. If we aren't drinking a lot of milk, by the time it shows up on a lab test, it's too late.

I had a bone density test about 9 months ago and it was perfect and the Calcium on my labs showed up as normal, so I think I am getting enough calcium in the foods I eat - I'll continue to have the bone density test annually and the labs done every 3-6 months and if either show a change, then I'll start taking calcium. Exercise helps alot, too!

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week

        If people ask, I am open about it

      2. ms.sss

        I'm about 10 months post op, and my standard answer is I eat way less and exercise way more (oh, and I cut the carbs by a lot). The only people I told were Mr., the Kid, BFF and my Mom.

        People know cuz my sissies have big mouths. And when skinny peeps ask out of morbid curiousity and they are "related" somehow to me, I look at em and arch my eyebrow and smile like, WTF? Then I just shrug and say, "I can neither confirm nor deny." (I've practiced this in the mirror many times. LOL!)

        But today, I was talking to a lady in my oncologist's office and she said "Oh don't you love you Surgeon X - bariatric surgeon? I'm in her weigh loss program!" And so I really opened up to her and talked frankly about the program and the surgery and details and how I'm so much happier and healthier, etc. So there has to be a real genuine need and desire for comraderie--otherwise, "Bye Felicia..."
