A chewable tablet is a tablet taken by chewing or dissolving in the mouth.
When calcium preparations come in regular tablets, because of the high content of active ingredients, you need to take a large number of tablets at a time. However, by changing the preparation into a chewable tablet form, it became possible to reduce the number of tablets that had to be taken in one dose.
It is a suitable dosage form for persons who are not good at swallowing tablets.
