The best way to get vitamins and nutrients is through food sources. If you need a supplement, you're going to have to do some research to figure out that right one for you. A doctor may be able to offer some advice.

Different people need different amounts of calcium. Also, different people tolerate the supplements differently. For example, supplements that contain calcium in the form of calcium carbonate have the greatest percentage of calcium, but calcium carbonate can cause constipation some people.

On top of what Chet has said, this is an international forum and brands are different all around the world. Ask your doctor for what you need.
