Brief Answer: No difference between calcium citrate and carbonat Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for the question. There is not much of a difference between calcium carbonate and calcium citrate, in the dosages mentioned by you, carbonate salt of calcium has 1250 mg of calcium and citrate salt has 1000mg of calcium. It is recommended to take around 1000 mg of calcium if you are suffering from calcium deficiency, and 200 to 250 IU of Vitamin-D3 will be sufficient, so you can take any of these tablets. As for, Zinc and Magnesium Hydrochloride, these are also essential elements required by the body, and Zinc is given as Zinc sulphate salt, and Magnesium is given as Magnesium Hydrochloride salt, and you can take them. Calcium, Zinc and Magnesium are different elements required by our body, and they are different chemical elements. Hope this answers your question. Regards.
