"I'm near the bottom of my bottle, but won't order again. They are so big and chalky they are hard to swallow and now that I'm at the bottom I'm finding many, many broken tablets and powder. I love vitacost products, but not this one."
"I think this product was somewhat helpful, but was so chalk like and huge that I could hardly take it. It fell apart and I had chalky powder everywhere. The size of the tablets was a great deterent to continuing with it. I probably won't purchase it again."
"Unless you have the gullet of a whale at least! Cal/Mags are always large, but these are HUGE...and no coating whatsoever...so they are like trying to swallow chunks of chalk. I have bought many items from this brand because they are a good $$ value...but these are a bust!"
"Excellent product, great quality at a very competitive price. My husband & I have been taking Calc, Mag, Zinc for 10+ years. We've found NSI's to be one of the best. Unlike some of the other folks, we do not have any issues with the size. It seems about the same as the other brands we've tried in the past."
"I think this is a great product with one caveat. Not for the elderly or anyone with swallowing difficulties due to the size of the pill. That's not a liability for me and my big mouth. Means less number of pills need to be taken a day. For someone with an aforementioned problem, just search for another product but be prepared to take a larger number of pills. This is exactly what I was looking for in a Ca suppliment as I don't mind the size. If you're younger, shouldn't be a problem"
"I really liked the ingredients in these tablets. And the price was great. But I will be returning them after 3 weeks.
Aside from finding them difficult to swallow - they are quite large and stick going down - I've been unusually constipated since switching from a the NSI Citrate/Malate formula (#3008728). Since I did not change my diet, which I track closely, the only cause could have been the calcium."
