Description

Calcium and magnesium work together synergistically.

The best types of calcium and magnesium may be chosen based on an individual's tendency for low stomach acid or constipation, for which calcium and magnesium citrate is usually better suited.

Calcium and magnesium are essential to many bodily functions, particularly for bone density and strength. They also are important to maintaining muscle and nerve health.

The recommended ratio of calcium to magnesium is 2:1.

Although calcium is the central mineral in bone mineralization or calcification, the quality of the calcium crystals formed is dependent on magnesium.

When magnesium levels are inadequate, the calcium crystals are weaker permitting fractures to occur. This occurs regardless of recommended daily consumption of calcium supplements.

Muscle function requires both calcium and magnesium; calcium helps muscles contract and magnesium helps them relax.

What is Calcium?

Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body (the human body contains approximately 2.5 pounds) and 99% of this is stored in the bones and teeth.

The remaining Calcium is in the bloodstream and the fluids surrounding the cells. It is an essential mineral with a wide range of biological functions. Calcium absorption declines with age. If the body does not get enough calcium, it will rob it from the bones, causing them to become porous and fragile. It cannot be over-stressed that calcium supplementation is of major importance for maintaining strong, healthy bones and slowing bone loss.

Calcium citrate is an easily absorbed, soluble and chelated form of calcium preferred by many health and nutritional experts. It is less likely to cause constipation which is a very real and uncomfortable problem with certain calcium supplements.

Research Indicates:

• Promotes strong bones and teeth
• Helps maintain normal PH levels
• Necessary nutrient for healthy blood clotting
• Helps move nutrients across cell membranes
• Helps prevent and minimize progressive bone loss
• May help reduce heartburn by normalizing stomach acid
• Important nutrient for lowering blood pressure
• Required nutrient for muscle contraction
• Assists in transmission of nerve impulses
• May support healthy cholesterol levels
• Regulates the transmission of nerve impulses
• Plays an important role in producing hormones and enzymes that regulate digestion and metabolism

What is Magnesium?

Magnesium is essential for hundreds of chemical reactions in the body. It functions as a coenzyme (it participates in over 300 enzymatic reactions!) for proper function of nerves and muscles, formation of bones and energy metabolism. Recent studies suggest that is of particular importance for proper heart function. Magnesium works synergistically with calcium by increasing its absorption and may increase bone density as well. In fact, the body stores 60% of its magnesium in the bones, 26% is in the muscle tissues and the remaining magnesium is stored in the soft tissues of the body. Magnesium supplementation is necessary for many people; as deficiency is quite common in North America. The U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates that 75 percent of Americans do not get an adequate supply of magnesium from their diet. Some of the reasons for deficiency include: diet high in processed foods, high calcium intake, stress, intense physical activity, alcoholism, and the use of certain medications.

Magnesium is important for many systems in the body especially the muscles and nerves. Magnesium citrate also increases water in the intestines, which may induce defecation.

Research Indicates:

• Important nutrient for cardiovascular health
• Helps convert carbohydrates, proteins and fats into energy
• Balances and regulates metabolism of calcium, potassium and sodium
• Required for normal muscular function
• May support healthy lung function
• Necessary for healthy bone and tooth growth
• Involved in the transmission of nerve impulses and muscle contractions
• Shown to inhibit formation of kidney stones
• May support healthy cholesterol levels

Cautions:

• Calcium may interfere with absorption of some medications such as the tetracycline antibiotics, consult a health care practitioner prior to using Calcium if you are taking these.
• Reports indicate that calcium may interfere with absorption of iron and zinc, but more research is necessary to substantiate this claim.
• Persons with kidney or thyroid disease should consult their health care practitioner before taking calcium
• Very high doses of calcium have been shown to cause kidney stones for some people
• If you are pregnant or lactating consult your health care practitioner prior to using Calcium
• The RDA for Magnesium is 400mg.
• If you have kidney disease, heart disease or are pregnant or lactating consult your health care practitioner prior to using magnesium.
• Magnesium citrate increases water in the intestines, which may induce defecation.


Note: If you are pregnant or lactating, consult your health care practitioner before using this product. Keep out of reach of children.
