Dietary sources
Calcium is found in high amounts in green leafy vegetables (kale, bok choy, Brussels sprouts, broccoli), dairy products (milk, cheese, yogurt), fish with edible bones (sardines, smelt), almonds, sesame seeds/sesame butter, figs, soy beans, and other legumes. Malic acid (malate) is found naturally in apples, watermelon, apricots, cherries, blackberries, and tomatoes.
Why our form
  • Absorption studies show significantly better absorption for DiCalcium Malate compared to calcium carbonate*
  • More concentrated than many other forms of calcium so you get more calcium in a capsule. For example, DiCalcium Malate is 29 percent calcium (two calcium molecules for each malate molecule) compared to calcium citrate, which is 19 percent calcium
  • Does not react with stomach acid like calcium carbonate does – so it is less likely to cause acid rebound and gas*
What we test for
  • Identification (via HPTLC)
  • Heavy metals
  • Microbes
