Calcium and Magnesium: Critical for Good Health
While calcium and magnesium are vital for good health, studies show that many Americans lack 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. Calcium is the most plentiful mineral in the body. To function properly, it 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. Perhaps its most important jobs are activating enzymes, contributing to energy production, and regulating calcium levels.
The Calcium & Magnesium Citrates formula from Vitabase includes high-quality, easily absorbed nutrients. In addition to calcium and magnesium, you also get vitamins D and K, boron, and betaine. Boron has been shown in postmenopausal women to slow the loss of calcium and magnesium through the urine. Betaine is beneficial for cardiovascular health.
Suggested Use: As a dietary supplement, adults take four (4) tablets daily with meals, or as directed by a health care professional. Store in a cool, dry place and away from direct light.
