This is an angstrom size mineral and vitamin supplement of calcium. An angstrom or nanoparticle size mineral supplement does not require digestion. Angstrom size minerals are absorbed immediately into the bloodstream due to their minute size, hence the body also requires much less of them to have the same effect on the body. With a traditional powdered mineral, actual absorption ranges from only 5 - 15 percent. With angstrom or nano-sized minerals, absorption is 100 percent, so much less is needed to reach the same daily supplementation level.
You can add this Angstrom Calcium to hot or cold beverages, soup, coffee etc. That way you can dilute the serving and also mask the taste, if needed.

When using regular (powdered, or colloidal) minerals, it is estimated that the human body will be able to breakdown and absorb 1 - 5 percent. These mini-minerals are close to 100% absorbable. Therefore, the RDA does not apply.*
For example, if the RDA of a mineral is 2,000 mg per day, to derive how much mini-mineral you need: multiply by a probably 1 percent absorption rate to get your answer. 2,000 x 1% = 20 mg.*
Organic calcium is used more than any other mineral in the body. There are 179 different known uses for calcium in the human body, here are some of the main ones:
1) Formation and maintenance of strong bones and teeth*
2) Prevents bone loss associated with osteoporosis*
3) Controls muscle contraction and with magnesium muscle relaxation*
4) Required for muscle growth*
5) Important in the maintenance of regular heartbeat*
6) Transmission of nerve impulses*
7) Transfer of information between brain cells*
8) Controls osmosis and diffusion through the cell membranes*
9) Passing of information within the cell. Calcium controls the formation of enzymes and hormones. It is involved in the activation of several enzymes including lipase*

This brand contains a significantly higher level of Calcium than Bone Support - yet still in instantly absorbable form. Remember that picometere-sized (angstrom/nanoparticle-sized) minerals do not require digestion to be absorbed. I will often mix this together with the Angstrom Magnesium and Angstrom Potassium in my morning smoothie or protein shake. Remember that magnesium works synergistically with calcium.
I also prefer this higher concentration because I just add 1-2 capfuls to my coconut water, or an Emergen-C packet - so I get a higher (yet instantly absorbed) dose without too much of a taste impact and I don't need to get out a measuring spoon!
Normally I purchase the Bone Support, this time I am using the Angstrom. My understanding is that they work the same, but the taste is quite different and I've had to make adjustments. The taste is really salty. I called customer service to make sure this is normal and was told yes. It would have been useful to include this information in the description.
This product caused a burning sensation immediately after ingesting it. I will never buy any products from them again they will not refund your money and if it's not opened you have to pay to ship it back. Go to your local nutrition store they will refund your money if something does not agree with you even if it's opened with a receipt that's what my nutrition stores in my area will do.
