DiCalcium Malate contains DimaCal®, which is optimally absorbed and is more concentrated than other calcium forms, providing more calcium per capsule. Research indicates that a large proportion of the U.S. adult population does not consume the 1,300 mg of calcium the U.S. Food and Drug Administration recommends for daily dietary intake.
Individuals who are at the most risk for calcium inadequacy because of decreased intake, disordered metabolism, decreased absorption, increased loss, or increased need include peri- and postmenopausal women, vegans, individuals who take certain medications, and those with a vitamin D deficiency (because vitamin D is necessary for calcium absorption).* Thorne’s DiCalcium Malate (DimaCal®), with 250 mg per capsule, is more concentrated than other forms of calcium (such as calcium carbonate), and is absorbed better than calcium carbonate.*
