Specializes in Endocrinology

Calcium citrate and calcium carbonate are calcium supplements which are recommended to people who do not use dairy products. Calcium carbonate is not well absorbed in people who have low amounts of acid in the stomach. Calcium citrate is well absorbed in the absence of acid.
