  • Calcium Citrate, another form of Calcium that is gentle on the stomach.


    Nature Made Calcium Citrate + Magnesium is formulated to be a convenient combination of two nutrients that are often missing in the average American’s diet. Calcium Citrate is a form of Calcium that does not require stomach acid or food for absorption, so it is considered to be more gentle on the stomach. Calcium citrate may benefit those who have decreased stomach acid due to aging, surgery, or certain medications (e.g., antacids). Calcium Citrate can also be taken with or without food. Magnesium assists the body with bone formation and Vitamin D improves Calcium absorption. Zinc is a key mineral that plays a role in more than 20 reactions in the body. Each two tablet serving of Nature Made Calcium Citrate + Magnesium delivers 500 mg of Calcium along with 80 mg of Magnesium, 800 IU of Vitamin D, and 10 mg of Zinc.


    • 60% of Americans don’t consume the adequate amount of Magnesium in their diet
    • Can be taken without food
    • Helps build strong bones and teeth
    • Adequate Calcium and Vitamin D throughout life, as part of a well-balanced diet, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis

  • Does your calcium contain any lead?

    The lead limit for all of our calcium products is well below the federally adopted USP (United States Pharmacopeia) and California Proposition 65 regulations. The current California lead limit, effective April 1, 1999, allows for a maximum of 1.5 ppm of lead per 1,000 mg of Calcium (which is even lower than federal guidelines that allow for a maximum of 3 ppm of lead calculated on calcium carbonate).

    Please note, because of the chemical similarity between calcium and lead, all calcium supplements have trace amounts of lead in them. Even supplements that report non-detectable amounts may have some lead in them depending on the study equipment used. Our equipment for detecting lead is very sophisticated and accurate. It is essential that our equipment be very precise since we have to be able to detect even trace amounts of lead in our products.

    Why combine magnesium with calcium?

    Both magnesium and calcium play a role in bone health, and 60% of Americans' diets fail to meet recommended daily magnesium intake.1 Nature Made is committed to providing convenient combinations to supplement your daily diet.

    Why do I need to take a calcium supplement?

    National nutrient intake data shows 49% of American adults fail to meet the recommended calcium intake through dietary sources.1 Calcium is an important nutrient, particularly for teens as well as post-menopausal women and older men. There are increased daily intake recommendations for individuals at these specific lifestages including 1300 mg for teens as 1200 mg for post-menopausal women (51 - 70y) and older men (>70y) compared to 1000 mg for adults (19 -50y).2 In general, you need to consume three or more servings of calcium per day to meet the daily requirement. One serving would be approximately one 8 ounce cup of milk, 6 ounces of yogurt, or 1 ounce of cheese.

    Why take calcium citrate versus calcium carbonate?

    Calcium citrate is ideal for those who have decreased stomach acid because it doesn’t need stomach acid for absorption. People who have decreased stomach acid include those taking certain medications like antacids or proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), the elderly, and those who have had bariatric surgery or stomach surgeries. In contrast, calcium carbonate needs to be taken with food and needs adequate stomach acid for absorption.
