Calcium Aspartate is a calcium salt of the amino acid, aspartic acid, that has a neutral reaction in the body. Medical research has shown it to be a well absorbed form of calcium supplementation supplying 100 mg of elemental calcium. Calcium aspartate and citrate are best for people who are uncertain of the acid-base balance of their bodies.
Calcium aspartate is a highly soluble form of calcium, formed by binding calcium and aspartic acid (an amino acid), providing better absorption, assimilation and usage. Aspartic acid is an important amino acid that functions as a transport mechanism delivering the calcium to proper body sites for specific functions. This form of calcium is readily absorbed by the body and has the dual advantage of releasing calcium and aspartic acid in the blood. It is easily absorbed, assimilated and utilized.
