Perfect for Dogs
From Anonymous of Brewster, Massachusetts on .
I've been using this calcium carbonate without vitamin D for my dog for 7 years. The veterinary nutritionist at U Penn recommended this when I needed to cook for my dog. It's perfect as the nutritionist specifically called for the calcium carbonate to be without vitamin D. Thanks for a great product.
Need Magnesium Too
From Anonymous of Alaska, Alaska on .
Magnesium and calcium are often recommended to be taken together. NOW Foods makes a magnesium powder, but Vegan Essentials doesn't appear to currently sale it. A source of D from somewhere, of course, is a necessity too. Many people are often unknowingly deficient in D.
This won't work without Vitamin D
From Anonymous of Richmond, Virginia on .
I bought this supplement and used it for months thinking my hip fracture would heal with its use. My orthoepedist was surprised that after 3 mos my hip still had not healed. So after bone density testing-came back fine & blood work-not so fine. It was low Vitamin D levels that can cause the bone not to heal. Calcium must have Vitamin D for your bones to benefit. Check out the Vitamin Chews or the VeganLife or even other versions of NOW vitamins (didn't see on this website but they are out there & cost about $9.95ish)

great alternative to soy milk and pills
From Anonymous of Montreal, Quebec on .
I was concerned that our family was getting too much soy in our diet (a doctor friend of mine told me about a recent study in Japan (I don't know how reliable) that found that more than one serving a day of soy (definition of one serving? I don't know)could actually increase one's chances of getting cancer. Anyway, rather than rely on soy milk for calcium, I've started using this handy powder in chocolate icing, pancakes, spaghetti sauce...it gives us so much more freedom, without feeling that we're taking an extra pill! The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is that it didn't dilute that well when I added it to our rice, so that even after it had cooked, you could see a film of caked calcium powder over the top which tasted fine, but really turned my husband off.
