So, what is calciumcitrate?

Calcium citrate is a calcium salt of citric acid, a compound commonly found in citrus fruits. This food ingredient is used as a source of calcium, an essential mineral for maintaining healthy bones and teeth. Unlike other calcium supplements, calcium citrate is easily absorbed by the body and does not require stomach acid for digestion. It is often added to foods and beverages as a fortifying agent, and can also be found in dietary supplements. Calcium citrate is a popular choice for vegans and people who are lactose intolerant, as it does not come from animal products.
