Calcium and Magnesium Are Essential to Good Health
There are two vital elements for good health and they are calcium and magnesium. Unfortunately, studies have shown that most Americans fail to get the magnesium they need in their diets, while nearly 50% fail to get the needed calcium.
Numerous Problems Can Arrise From Calcium and Magnesium Deficiencies
Most of us are aware that calcium is needed for strong bones and teeth, but most people don't realize it is also important for helping the heart, nerves, muscles, and other body systems work properly. According to the National Institutes of Health, it is not unusual for many individuals to consume less than half the calcium they need for building and maintaining healthy bones. Decreased amounts of calcium the body can retain are caused by things like heavy use of caffeine, such as in coffee, sodium phosphates found in carbonated drinks, and alcohol.
Getting enough calcium in the diet is also important for preventing a number of health problems. To function properly, calcium must be accompanied by several other nutrients, including vitamins A, C, D, and K; phosphorus; and magnesium.
Magnesium is Important for Every Organ in the Body
Magnesium, like calcium, contributes to the structure of bones and teeth. It is also very essential for every organ, especially the heart, muscles, and kidneys. Its most important jobs are activating enzymes, contributing to energy production, and regulating calcium levels.
Each dose contains 500 mg of high-quality, easily absorbed calcium. Also included in this formula are vitamin D, magnesium, boron, and betaine hydrochloride to maximize effectiveness.
