Calvid Calcium & Vitamin D Orange Drink Sachets

Many people have difficulty taking the large calcium tablets currently available.

CALVID also contains citric acid. The citric acid in reacts with the calcium carbonate in water, releasing the gas carbon dioxide. This is what creates the fizz. In the process calcium citrate is created. A number of clinical and laboratory studies have shown that calcium citrate is better absorbed by the body than calcium carbonate.
CALVID has less than 0.5g of carbohydrates per sachet and is lactose and gluten free and low in sodium (1.2mg per sachet. As a comparison a glass of milk has approximately 100mg of sodium)
