Caltrate Plus is a calcium dietary supplement. As well as calcium carbonate it contains vitamin D to help increase calcium absorption, magnesium to help maintain strong bones, zinc and copper manganese for skeletal development and boron to help the body use the calcium.

Caltrate Plus is typically used by diarrhea-predominant IBS sufferers. If you are constipation-predominant then magnesium would be more appropriate.
