Creamy Bites Clinical Information

Adequate calcium and vitamin D as part of a healthy diet, along with physical activity, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis later in life. For most women, calcium supplementation is a necessity, but for many it can mean just another pill that must be taken, often with other medications – a burden easy to skip or forget. That's why we developed Calcet Creamy Bites, a unique and delicious way to promote good bone health and help in the fight against osteoporosis.

  • Creamy Bites contain calcium citrate – the most readily absorbed1 and trusted form of calcium, without the gas production associated with calcium carbonate.2
  • Each small, delicious piece delivers 500 mg of calcium, and 400 IU of vitamin D3 – just 2 servings each day can provide the total Recommended Dietary Allowances for both.3
  • In clinical studies, biochemical markers for bone resorption significantly decreased in patients taking calcium citrate.4
  • In studies involving postmenopausal women, calcium citrate significantly decreased serum parathyroid hormone (PTH) and urinary hydroxyproline, a biochemical marker of bone resorption.5
  • The excellent solubility of calcium citrate makes it a good choice for patients with achlorhydria or hypochlorhydria, which can result from the use of H2 antagonists, proton pump inhibitors, or over-the-counter antacids.6
  • Calcet Creamy Bites can be taken anytime, anywhere – with their delicious, dessert-like quality, people can actually look forward to taking their calcium each day.

Calcium supplementation is serious. Calcet Creamy Bites are seriously enjoyable.

  • The benefits of calcium and vitamin D supplementation continue to emerge in the medical and scientific literature – Creamy Bites deliver all these benefits.
  • People take Creamy Bites because it's the delicious and fun way to get their full day's supply of calcium and vitamin D.
