Complete Calcium Supplement
 July 7, 2014
"The price for this product is higher than other calcium supplements I have bought but I like that the source of calcium is plant-based and organic and that there are other key essential vitamins and minerals to support bone health. Also, it contains the Raw Super Foods complex, plus organic fruits, vegetables, probiotics and enzymes for total-body nourishment."

Not just for bones!
 May 19, 2014
"I've been taking this supplement for a few months now, and while I cannot KNOW whether my bones are any more dense than they were, I can certainly see that my hair has become thicker and stronger, a sure sign that my body is absorbing these food-based nutrients and benefitting from them."

Good product and great formulation
 February 14, 2014
"Before I take during one year Bone Strength take care of New Chapter, but now I have switched to this one. I feel better and the formulation is great and better. It's not for the price because I find it at the same price.
Strontium in this formulation is not a problem, because it's a low dose and the body is more smart what we think, and he know take what he need... And for me I try high dose of strontium I don't like, it blocked my loins !
My only one regret concerning this formulation, it's the oxide magnesium, it will be better if it's hydroxide, better absorption and bio availability. Hopefully next upgrade...
I recommended this good product for any one seek a good supplement of calcium."

Almost great combination of ingredients..
 February 1, 2014
"As far a I have read, Strontium and Calcium must introduce separately in the body.
Otherwise, the product seems excellent.
I need more time to estimate better.
