From the manufacturer's website:
The effectiveness of Os-Cal® was demonstrated in a clinical study.* Os-Cal® Calcium + D3 has the added benefit of 200 IU Vitamin D3, which helps the body absorb calcium.
Os-Cal has the added benefit of Vitamin D:
Vitamin D is essential for normal calcium absorption.** Adequate intake of calcium and Vitamin D is linked to the reduced risk of osteoporosis through the mechanism of slowing the rate of bone loss for people with a family history of disease, postmenopausal women, and elderly men and women.
Adequate calcium and vitamin D, throughout life as part of a healthful diet, are essential to reduce the risk of osteoporosis.
The calcium in Os-Cal® Calcium + D3 is calcium carbonate - the most concentrated form of calcium salt.
