Optimal calcium support for the healthy diet.
- Each serving features 2:1 ratio of calcium to magnesium.
- Calcium and magnesium are essential for healthy teeth and building bones.*
- Adequate calcium in a healthy diet may reduce the risk of osteoporosis later in life, especially for teen and young women.
Calcium: promotes strong bones, lowers blood pressure, reduces symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS). More than 99% of the body's calcium is stored in bones, where it serves both a structural and physiological role. The most obvious need for calcium is to help build and maintain strong bones, but calcium is also important for blood clotting, muscle contraction, nerve transmission, and maintenance of normal blood pressure. There is also some evidence that calcium supplements may be helpful in reducing the risk of colon cancer, regulating heart rhythms and treating premenstrual syndrome (PMS).
Practically nobody consumes enough calcium in their daily diet, so calcium is one of the nutrients for which supplementation is highly recommended.
Magnesium: builds bone, increases energy levels, promotes heart health, enhances protein synthesis (muscle building). Because magnesium is needed as a co-factor for several enzymes to help convert carbohyd-rates, protein, and fat into energy, magnesium supplements may play a role in energy metabolism. Due to the role of magnesium in conducting nerve impulses, supplements have been promoted for support of heart function. Magnesium's role in bone health stems from its primary location in bone tissue and its ability to help increase calcium absorption.
Suggested use: as a dietary supplement, take two capsules daily.
