Calcium and Magnesium are essential minerals
for the building of bones and teeth and are
extremely critical for the proper functioning of
both skeletal muscles
and the heart. Because they are difficult to absorb,
most people should supplement with them.
Calcium/Magnesium is a superior
product because it focuses on the absorption
problem in two ways; (1) it is an isotonic product
of high quality, organic Calcium and Magnesium to
meet each individual's needs. It is immediately
dissolved in the water. (2) it assures an acidic
media in which Calcium and Magnesium are best
absorbed. It includes
a team of vitamins and trace elements necessary to
properly utilize Calcium and Magnesium. Boron helps
maintain Calcium levels in the body
once it is absorbed.
One capful of Calcium/Magnesium twice
a day mixed with water or juice provide 1,000 mg
each of both Calcium and Magnesium.
Contains no preservatives, sugar, starch,
salt, wheat, yeast, corn, milk, soy derivatives,
artificial flavoring or coloring agents.
CALCIUM AND MAGNESIUM
We probably need more Calcium and Magnesium
than any other vitamin or mineral because they are
the primary building blocks of bones, teeth and
muscles. Many foods contain these valuable minerals,
especially calcium, so many people supplement their
diets with calcium. yet Calcium remains high on the
list of minerals in which people are deficient.
It is not how much Calcium and Magnesium you
obtain from the foods you eat and supplements you
take, but rather how much your body ABSORBS and
UTILIZES. Very simply, Calcium is difficult to
absorb for most people.
Life Plus understands that the name of the
game is absorption and utilization; therefore, Calcium/Magnesium
is more than just a straight Calcium supplement. It
includes an abundant amount of Magnesium and
other specific nutrients your body needs in order to
absorb and utilize both Calcium and Magnesium to
its fullest potential.
Your body needs adequate amounts of Magnesium
in order to absorb calcium and it also needs
adequate amounts of Calcium to utilize Magnesium.
Vitamin D-3 is also included because it is
necessary for both the absorption and utilization of
Any Calcium supplement that does not contain
Calcium, Magnesium and Vitamin D is simply not of
much value in terms of absorption and utilization in
added to help maintain Calcium levels in the body
once it is absorbed. Studies have shown that less
Calcium is excreted in the urine if adequate levels
of Boron are present.
TYPES OF CALCIUM & MAGNESIUM
Many Calcium supplements contain only
inexpensive, inorganic forms of Calcium, such as
oxides or carbonates. In general, most of these
products are not worthwhile because most of the Calcium is
not absorbed. Different individuals seem to be able
to absorb different forms of Calcium and Magnesium.
This is why CHS's Calcium/Magnesium contains
numerous sources of Calcium and Magnesium including
citrates, chelates, aspartates,
gluconates, ascorbates, glycerophosphates and
WHY TAKE CALMAG PLUS
Individuals who are allergic to dairy
products (a major source of Calcium in the American
diet) can easily become deficient in Calcium and
need Calcium/Magnesium to make up for the
loss of this source of Calcium.
During pregnancy, mothers need a great deal
of Calcium and Magnesium to ensure the proper
development of the fetal bones, muscles and teeth
and to ensure that the mother's own mineral stores
are not depleted. For the same reason, lactating
mothers should continue to supplement their diets
Growing children need extra Calcium in their
diets to ensure continuing development of muscles,
bones and teeth. If they maintain proper levels of
Calcium, they will have less tendency toward
cavities and broken bones. Calcium/Magnesium
is the perfect supplement for them.
Anyone who drinks large amounts of soft
drinks need extra amounts of Calcium/Magnesium,
because of the leaching effects of the ortho
Carbonated, phosophorylated soft drinks are
one cause of bone degeneration and the increased
incidence of this problem has been shown to
correspond to the increased consumption.
Calcium and Magnesium are absolutely
necessary for healthy muscles. Inadequate levels can
lead to muscle cramping, especially in the legs.
Elderly people find it increasingly difficult
to absorb Calcium and in general don't seem to get
enough Magnesium. They often develop osteoporosis, a
condition where Calcium erodes from the bones
causing them to become weak and brittle. Elderly
people should supplement their diets with Calcium/Magnesium
Calcium and Magnesium are often called
"Nature's Tranquilizers" because of their
natural calmative effect, not only for muscles but
for the nervous system as well.
HOW TO TAKE Calcium/Magnesium
It is usually recommended that most people
take one capful of Calcium/Magnesium
(dissolved in 50 ml water) two times per day,
usually before meals. This supplies 1,000 mg
each of both
Calcium and Magnesium and represents 100% of the RDA
for Calcium and 250% for Magnesium. Individual needs
will vary. Older individuals and pregnant or lactating women should
consider taking more.
