What is Calcium-Magnesium with Zinc & Vitamin D?
Two of the most significant health problems associated with aging—osteoporosis and joint degeneration—may both be caused, in part, by a calcium and/or a magnesium deficiency. Osteoporosis affects almost 10 million Americans, with millions more suffering from low bone density. This increases the risk of development of osteoporosis as well as the risk of bone fractures.
Calcium is needed to develop strong, healthy bones and teeth, as well as for maintaining thyroid function, nerve transmission, and muscle contraction. Magnesium is required for proper absorption of calcium, and together, they are two of the most important minerals needed for our survival. In addition to their important roles in bone and muscle health, calcium and magnesium work together in many other processes in the body.
Calcium: Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body and is important for building and maintaining healthy bones and teeth and ensuring proper nerve transmission and muscle contraction. Calcium also combines with bile and fat in the intestine to form a beneficial cleansing agent that passes from the colon with the stool, helping to prevent and relieve constipation.
Magnesium: Magnesium is responsible for hundreds of functions in the body. It helps the muscles to relax and reduces muscle cramping and spasms. Sleep quality is often improved with magnesium supplementation, and an imbalanced calcium-magnesium ratio is often present in individuals with thyroid disorders. The recommended ratio of calcium to magnesium is 2:1.
Zinc: Also an important mineral for optimal health, zinc is an essential component of all body tissues, organs and body secretions. It is found in high concentrations in the retina, liver, kidneys, reproductive fluids, and the prostate gland in men. It plays a role in virtually all biochemical pathways and physiological processes, and is essential for the maintenance of optimal bone density. One of the first signs of zinc deficiency is a diminished sense of taste and smell.
Vitamin D: Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium properly from the intestinal tract, which is crucial to bone mineralization and bone health. Without vitamin D, bones become thin, brittle, soft, or misshapen. It is also an important component in maintaining healthy immune system function.
Betaine HCl and Glutamic Acid HCl: This formula additionally contains Betaine HCl and Glutamic Acid HCl, which maximize the digestion of calcium, magnesium, and zinc. This is especially important as stomach hydrochloric acid levels typically decline with age, making digestion, absorption, and assimilation of nutrients, more difficult.
Common symptoms of Calcium deficiency include:
Leg and arm muscle spasms
Osteoporosis or low bone density
Softening of bones
Common symptoms of Magnesium deficiency include:
Muscle spasms or twitching, muscle cramps
Blood sugar imbalance
What is the recommended dosage?
Take 2 tablets daily with a meal.
Can I take Cal-Mag Zinc & Vitamin D with medications?
If you are taking any medications or antibiotics, consult your doctor before using. Zinc-containing supplements should be taken at least 2 hours before or after medications, including antibiotics.Read full review
