Calcium & Magnesium (250 Vegetarian Capsules)

Calcium & Magnesium (250 Vegetarian Capsules)

Vegeratian Calcium and Magnesium

Calcium and Magnesium is an essential combination for many processes in the body, especially for bone density and muscle strength and nerve health.

The ideal ratio of Calcium and Magnesium is 2:1 and then they work together synergistically.  While Calcium is the key mineral for bone calcification, the quality of the Calcium crystals formed is dependent on Magnesium being present. If Magnesium levels are inadequate, then the Calcium Crystals are weaker allowing fractures to occur more easily, so it is important to take Calcium with adequate quantities of Magnesium.

Muscle function requires both Calcium and Magnesium; Calcium helps muscles contract and Magnesium helps them relax.

Good 4 Life Calcium and Magnesium is made in the optimal 2:1 ratio and  is available as a 250 vegetarian capsules in protective Dark Amber Bottles which are made from100%  Post Consumer Recycled (PCR) plastic. Our Calcium and Magnesium is extracted from one of the most natural and abundant sources of calcium & magnesium:  the Calcium (as Calcium Carbonate) is derived from limestone while the Magnesium (as Magnesium Oxide) is derived from limestone and sea water.

Calcium in the Body
Calcium in the body  is the most prevalent mineral accounting for around 2.5 pounds in the average human and 99% is stored in the teeth and bones. The blood and fluids surroung the cells hold the remaining Calcium. Calcium absorption declines with age, when the blood and cells do not have enough Calcium, they will rob it from the bones causing them to become porous and fragile. It is therefore a key strategy to use Calcium supplementation for maintaining strong, healthy bones and slowing bone loss.

Research and Uses of Calcium
» Prevents and minimizes progressive bone loss
» Regulates the transmission of nerve impulses
» May reduce heartburn by normalizing stomach acid
» Used to manufacture key hormones and enzymes for digestion and metabolism
» Critical for maintaining normal PH levels
» Primary nutrient for muscle contraction
» Critical nutrient for healthy blood clotting
» Helps transmission of nerve impulses
» Aids movement of nutrients across cell membranes
» Can support healthy cholesterol levels
» Needed for strong bones and teeth
» Key nutrient for lowering blood pressure

Magnesium in the Body
Magnesium is essential in over 300 enzymatic reactions, it functions as a coenzyme for proper function of muscles and nerves, bone formation, energy production, and metabolism. Recently studies suggest that is very important for proper heart function.

The body stores 61% of its Magnesium in the bones, 25%  in the muscle tissues and the remaining Magnesium is stored in the soft tissues of the body and in the blood.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates that 75% of Americans are generally deficient in Magnesium. Deficiency causes include processing of foods, high Calcium intake, stress, alcoholism, intense physical activity,  and the use of certain medications.

Research and Uses of Magnesium
» Needed for healthy bone and tooth growth
» Converts carbohydrates, proteins and fats into energy
» Helps the transmission of nerve impulses and muscle contractions
» Can support healthy lung function
» Key nutrient for cardiovascular health
» Regulates metabolism of calcium, potassium and sodium
» May inhibit formation of kidney stones
» Needed for normal muscular function
» Can support healthy cholesterol levels
