Calcium & Magnesium


Two vital elements for good health are calcium and magnesium, yet studies show that many Americans do not get the magnesium they need from their diets while nearly half fail to get the needed calcium. Why are these two minerals so important and what can they mean for your good health?

Most of us know that calcium is needed for strong bones and teeth, but did you know that the most abundant mineral in the body 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, large intake of sodium phosphates found in carbonated drinks, and alcohol can decrease the calcium the body retains.

Getting enough calcium in the diet is important for treating and/or preventing a number of health issues. Research has shown calcium may impact conditions such as osteoporosis, hypoarathyroidism, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), high blood pressure, high cholesterol, stroke, colon issues, obesity, tooth and gum disease and insomnia. Calcium is the most plentiful mineral in the body. To function properly, calcium must be accompanied by several other nutrients including Vitamins A, C, D, and K, phosphorus and magnesium.

Good value
by Nikki Graham

Very good price for a calcium product that has the calcium in three forms--chelate, carbonate and citrate. Most cheaper calciums are just carbonate which is the least likely calcium to be absorbed by the body.
