Forbones Xtra D is a calcium supplement designed particularly for people that need additional calcium but don’t like the excess gas that can come from calcium carbonate supplements.
Each Forbones Xtra D tablet:
Contains dicalcium phosphate. Forbones provides both calcium and phosphorus, the two major minerals in bone. Forbones is gas free, unlike calcium carbonate supplements that produce carbon dioxide gas and can cause pain or discomfort from intestinal distension, belching and flatulence.
Provides 400 mg of elemental calcium and 300 mg of elemental phosphorus. 2-3 tablets daily provide the calcium and phosphorus needed by most people. People with certain gastrointestinal conditions or who are taking corticosteroid drugs such as prednisone may need additional calcium and should consult their physician regarding daily calcium intake.
Provides 200 International Units of vitamin D (cholecalciferol), essential to absorption and utilization of calcium. The vitamin D in each tablet is in water-miscible form to promote good absorption in people who may not digest fats and oils well. Gastric bypass surgery and gastrointestinal conditions such as pancreatitis, Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis can interfere with digestion of fats.
Contains no gluten, lactose, or sweeteners.
