Two vital elements for good health are calcium and magnesium. However, studies show that many Americans fail to get the magnesium they need from their diets, while nearly half fail to get the needed calcium. Most of us know that calcium is needed for strong bones and teeth, but did you know 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. Heavy use of caffeine, such as in coffee, sodium phosphates found in carbonated drinks, and alcohol can decrease the calcium the body retains.
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. Like calcium, magnesium contributes to the structure of bones and teeth, but it is also very important 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 tablet delivers 500 mg of very high-quality, easily absorbed calcium. Also included in this formula are vitamin D, magnesium, boron, and betaine hydrochloride.
