This is the only Calcium product Dr. Thompson currently recommends. The reason is because it also contains trace minerals, approximately 15%. Some people (about 5-10% of the population) need calcium as determined by a reliable HTMA. Dr. Thompson believes calcium should never be taken without first determining the need (this should not be taken for osteoporosis, which is loss of minerals, not just calcium, unless calcium deficiency is first determined by HTMA). In general, it is very easy to correct calcium levels. It is very difficult to correct too much calcium (90% of the population of the world has too much calcium). Follow up HTMA should be obtained at least yearly when taking any calcium product.
