Background: The objective of this study was to assess side effects and satisfaction about OsteoCalVitFort (500mg calcium and 400 I.U. of vitamin D3) usage. Methods: A total 186 people were participated with range age from 18 to 65years old. Each participant received 1 pack that contains 60 OsteoCalVitFort tablet and used two tablet OsteoCalVitFort daily (1 tablet after breakfast and 1 after dinner). By a phone call, side effects and satisfaction about OsteoCalVitFort were assessed. Results: The rate of constipating (8.0) and bloating (12.5) were decreased significantly after OsteoCalVitFort supplement intake (1.2, and 0.6, respectively). Similar results were observed in metallic taste in mouth, tiredness, weakness, loss of appetite, bone/muscle pain and mental/mood change after Calcium Vitamin D3 supplementation intake. Totally, 94 of patients were satisfied about OsteoCalVitFort usage. Conclusion: The results of the research indicate despite the high quality of OsteoCalVitFort supplement, there are no side effects which have been seen in other supplements. © 2016 Sanaei et al.
