Calcium citrate malate is a water-soluble calcium supplement, which contributes to its bioavailability. It is the calcium salt of citric acid and malic acid. This combination releases calcium ions and calcium citrate complexes directly into intestinal cells.
This can be used to maintain optimal calcium levels due to its high bioavailability. The water-soluble nature of this type of calcium is great in instances of low stomach acid known as hypochlorhydria, which typically includes the elderly and those on acid-reducing medications.
