Designed to be taken in conjunction with a multivitamin, our Cooper Complete® Calcium Citrate Dietary Supplement is the first step to healthy bones.
120 tablets of 250 mg per bottle.
For strong bones, proper levels of calcium, along with weight bearing exercise, are a must. A calcium citrate supplement is a great solution when diet doesn’t provide optimal levels of calcium. Research indicates long-term, daily calcium intake is required for optimal bone health.
While Cooper Clinic recommends calcium consumption through food, it is oftentimes difficult to consistently reach this optimal level. When diet alone is not enough, augment with Cooper Complete® Calcium Citrate supplements. Each tablet provides 250 mg calcium citrate supplement. Based on your age, Cooper Clinic recommends the following daily calcium intake:
- Women 19-50 years: 1,000 mg
- Women 51 and older: 1,200 mg
- Women 71+ years: 1,200 mg
- Men 19-70 years: 1,000 mg
- Men 71+ years: 1,200 mg
As part of a healthy diet, strive to include two to four servings of low-fat and non-fat dairy per day through food sources. In addition to dairy, calcium is found in soybeans, enriched grains, and dark leafy greens like spinach, kale, turnips and collard greens. There are also many calcium-fortified foods in grocery stores – everything from orange juice to English muffins.
Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body. The blood level of calcium may be normal even in individuals who do not get enough calcium in the diet. And in fact, to provide adequate calcium for the muscles and heart, the body will utilize calcium from the bone, reducing bone density. It is important to discuss your calcium needs with your physician in order to ensure you consume (through food, fortified foods, and supplements) the optimal levels of calcium needed.
Cooper Complete Calcium Citrate supplement is designed to be taken in conjunction with one of the Cooper Complete multivitamins, which already includes desirable levels of magnesium and vitamin D. For optimal absorption, Calcium Citrate supplements should be taken first thing in the morning and last thing at night, so they do not compete with calcium that has been consumed through diet.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why isn’t calcium in Cooper Complete multivitamins?
Calcium requirements are dependent upon both gender and age. Because Cooper Complete multivitamins are formulated for men and women, it was best to leave calcium out of the formula.
Is Cooper Complete Calcium Citrate vegan?
Yes, Cooper Complete Calcium Citrate is vegan.
Why should I take calcium?
Research indicates long-term, daily calcium intake is required to best promote bone health. Bone health doesn’t seem to differ based on the way someone consumes calcium — whether by eating calcium-rich foods or taking different types of calcium supplements.
What are calcium-rich foods?
Calcium-rich foods include fortified tofu, canned salmon and dairy products. Calcium-fortified juices, cereals and breads are also available. Broccoli, spinach, kale and brussels sprouts also contain calcium, but at lower levels.
If you drink milk to get your calcium, keep in mind that one cup (eight ounces) typically has about 300 mg of calcium. So, you’ll need to drink between three and four cups daily to meet the calcium requirements. Some soy, rice, and almond milks are fortified with calcium, but amounts vary widely so check the labels when evaluating different brands.
How can I tell how much calcium is in a food or beverage?
To determine the amount of calcium in food products, if you’re reading food labels and it says 20 percent calcium, replace the percent sign with a zero to get the total milligrams. For example, 20 percent would be the same as 200 milligrams of calcium.
Can I take this product if I am also taking Coumadin or Warfarin?
If you are taking Coumadin or Warfarin, we recommend consulting your doctor before adding any supplements to your diet.
