Calcium Priority offers three different sources of Calcium, tricalcium phosphate, calcium citrate, calcium ascorbate, calcium borate for high bioavailability and absorption, meaning they reach one’s bones quicker and are utilized more effectively.
Calcium Priority contains three bioavailable forms of calcium plus
vitamins A, C, D, K2 and boron.. Four capsules of Calcium Priority contains 1,000 mg of calcium, the same amount in 20 ounces of milk and 800 iu of Vitamin D, the amount in 1/2 gallon of fortified milk.

Why Calcium Priority does not contain magnesium.
 
1. Not everyone can take magnesium, especially those with kidney problems.
 
2. If magnesium were included in Calcium Priority, you would have to take 9 capsules to get 1000 mg of calcium and 400 mg of magnesium. To get these amounts from Calcium Priority (90 capsules) and Magnesium Priority (120 capsules) individually, you still have to take about that many capsules (4 and 6, respectively), but the important thing is that those who can’t take magnesium are not left without a good calcium formulation that they can take.
 
3. Regarding the belief that magnesium is required to enable calcium to be absorbed: although calcium absorption is dependent on vitamin D, it apparently does not depend on magnesium. 1 (The two minerals are, however, highly interactive in the circulation and in cellular function.) Conversely, most human studies on the effects of dietary calcium on magnesium absorption have shown no effect,2-4 and one study has reported decreased magnesium absorption rates!
 
A final, important point is that some magnesium is needed, along with calcium, boron, and vitamins A, C,D and K2, for proper bone health.

    I am a healthcare worker and an educator. I was lucky to fing Life Priority Calcium Priority! As a nurse I am very familiar with the effects of bone loss. I believe the Life Priority Calcium Priority with 3 different forms of calcium and the addition of vitamin k are a great support for anyone who needs to take calcium.

    I was introduced to Life Priority products in 1996 by a friend. I was told I needed to add calcium to my diet. I showed my doctor the label of 3-Way Calcium and he was impress with the 3 different kinds of calcium. I have used 3 Way calcium ever since. Great product and a great company.

    My physician says this is the best combo to get the most from a calcium supplement she’s ever seen! I take 4 a day, per her instructions, and I passed my bone density test with flying colors at the age of 58; I’ve been taking them since my hysterectomy at age 40.
