A useful product
I have used this product for years ever since they were prescribed for me as I get older, to protect my bones. I now buy them myself. On the rare occasions I have fallen, I have not broken any bones, so I presume the Calcichew tablets are doing the job. They are palatable too.
Exactly as described
Exactly as ordered Good quality and easy to take as not too hard like most other calcium pills.
It much to say yet as I've only just started using the product. Delivery and communication excellent.
I've taken these for low vitamin D and like the taste. The price is good, easy to take and you get quite a lot of them
Much needed for breastfeeding
