There's a calcium crisis in our country. According to the USDA, 78% of adult women, 87% of teenage girls, 56% of adult men and 64% of teenage boys aren't getting enough calcium from their diets. *** If you fall below your required daily amount, you are recommended to supplement your diet with calcium. Essential Calcium provides a delicious, grapefruit flavor, 100% ionic (when mixed with water) calcium supplement designed to help meet the needs of your whole family without the need for those big, hard-to-swallow tablets.

*** USDA's Continuing Survey of Food Intake by Individuals, 1994-96.
