How do I take Cal-EZ?
Stir one (1) packet into a serving of your favorite beverage until fully dispersed. Since it is tasteless, Cal-EZ can also be mixed into soft foods like cereal, scrambled eggs, yogurt, mashed potatoes, or pasta.
Can the daily dose of Cal-EZ be divided?
Absolutely! To optimize absorption of calcium, you can divide the 1,000 milligram daily amount into two doses by taking a half-packet of Cal-EZ at a time. The top of the packet can be folded closed and will maintain full potency for several days. The fact that Cal-EZ is in a powder form should result in faster absorption as compared to tablets or pills that must first be broken down in the stomach.
Why choose Cal-EZ calcium powder?
The absorbability of Cal-EZ was demonstrated in a recent clinical study where Cal-EZ went head-to-head versus a leading over-the-counter calcium citrate tablet. The results of the study demonstrated that Cal-EZ calcium carbonate powder was absorbed more rapidly versus the calcium citrate tablets. Better and faster calcium absorption means that calcium is absorbed, available, and ready to act on your body to maintain proper bone health and calcium homeostasis. If you need to get your calcium absorbed quickly and efficiently, Cal-EZ is clinically proven to deliver. In addition, a 2003 Harris survey of US adults found that approximately 40% of respondents had experienced difficulty swallowing pills. Cal-EZ solves this problem by mixing easily into most beverages or soft foods.

Anyone who does not get enough calcium from their diet may consider taking a daily Cal-EZ supplement. Women and adolescent girls in particular are more likely to not get enough calcium in their diet to maintain bone health. Consult a physician to determine whether a calcium supplement is right for you.

Why do our bodies need vitamin D?
The body needs vitamin D to absorb calcium. Without enough vitamin D, one can’t form enough of the hormone calcitriol (known as the “active vitamin”). This in turn may lead to insufficient calcium absorption from the diet. In this situation, the body must take calcium stored in the bones, which weakens existing bone and prevents the formation of strong, new bone.
