Description

Calcium citrate, with the chemical formula Ca₃(C₆H₅O₇)₂, is a chemical compound derived from citric acid, a weak organic acid found in citrus fruits. It is a white, crystalline powder soluble in water, making it easy to incorporate into various formulations. The compound is known for its bioavailability, which refers to the extent and rate at which a substance can enter the bloodstream for use in the body. Due to its solubility and absorption characteristics, calcium citrate is a popular choice as a calcium supplement. Some of the leading manufacturers of calcium citrate in Vadodara can provide you with more detailed information about the product. 

In terms of its chemical structure, calcium citrate consists of calcium ions bonded to citric acid molecules. This unique composition gives it distinct properties compared to other calcium salts. Unlike calcium carbonate, for example, calcium citrate does not require an acidic environment for absorption, making it suitable for individuals with reduced stomach acid production. The compound’s ability to be absorbed in the absence of high acidity contributes to its effectiveness as a source of dietary calcium.
