Hello, I am a 62 yo woman with osteoporosis and am and have been taking Boniva for a little over two years. I got a new bone density test in November and when I got the results, all the doctor would say is that nothing has changed? I take the Citrical Slow Release 1200 mg once a day and Vit D 10,000 iu per day. My chiropractor indicated that I should take magnesium so I have added 500 mgs of that per day as well. Now to the EZorb calcium. My sister-in-law sent me the url for this calcium supplement and I found it interesting that their claim of absorption is 3-4 times higher than most of the other calcium supps on the market...is this accurate? I cannot find anything on WebMD about this particular supplement, anyone have any infor on this?View Thread
