Nothing's wrong with it, Beardy, but I do think the label is a little misleading. It says that:
"Other calcium supplements in tablet form may include antacids to reduce irritation of your stomach as the tablets dissolve. However, this same antacid may interfere with calcium absorption."
Yet magnesium carbonate, which it contains, is considered an antacid (it's found in Mylanta).

You have to know how to read claims. Note it says "MAY include" & "MAY interfere" & "MAY be less effective" for the other products. Yes, & our sun MAY go supernova some day. Do you see what I mean? Really, few people have problems with utilizing the calcium & magnesium supplements they take. Most with stomach problems have too much acid, not too little.

Anyway, it's a fine product even if pricey. Just don't take a large amount at one time. Our bodies were designed to absorb only so much at one time. Yet that's why most people want a supplement with high numbers - so they only neeed take it once a day. It doesn't work that way.
