IS THERE CALCIUM CITRATE IN THIS MULTIVITAMIN?
No. Our bariatric multivitamin does not contain calcium citrate for a few reasons: 1) Our multivitamin contains iron, and calcium can inhibit iron absorption. You must take them separately by at least 2 hours. 2) Calcium needs to be taken in 2-3 doses throughout the day as your body can only absorb 500-600 mg at a time. Therefore, a once-a-day capsule cannot provide the amount you require. 3) 1000-1500 mg of calcium would drastically increase the size of the capsule. We like the ease and convenience of a once-a-day multivitamin that allows you to change up the calcium supplement you choose.
