    I hear some much about coral calcium, I though I will give it a try. I have been taking Citracal+D for years. Shoul I keep taking the citracal or the coral calcium is enough?
    Thank you

    Welcome to the Message Board!
    I suggest you check out the quackwatch website. They have some very interesting stuff on coral calcium.
    Calcium citrate is very good stuff, and I'd stick with it if I were you.
    BTW, I hope you have made sure that your multi-vitamin, if you take one, does not also have vitamin D in it??? Also, check any fortified milk, OJ or cereal to make sure there is no extra vit. D, since it is possible to OD on it.
    We hope to hear from you lots more in the future....we need all the guys we can get around here!

    Hi Jack,
    From what I've heard, coral calcium is more hype than anything. It's supposed to be more easily absorbed than other forms, but I really haven't researched it that much ... the coral calcium sites will, of course, tell you that it's wonderful stuff.

    I would personally stick to the Citrical.
