Both calcium and magnesium are critical for strong bones, but most people have an imbalance of these two vital nutrients. Calcium intake often outweighs magnesium in the diet and this can affect absorption and utilization of calcium leading to weak bones and over-calcification (that may result in hardening of the arteries, heart problems, arthritis, kidney stones, gallstones).
New studies are showing us that the best way to maintain the health of our bones is through the regular use of balanced calcium magnesium supplementation. Floradix Calcium-Magnesium Liquid Mineral Supplement with added Vitamin D and Zinc citrate is scientifically formulated for maximum absorption.
Prepared in a base of herbal extracts with natural tropical fruit concentrates to ensure the correct stomach acidity.
Calcium Lactate and Gluconate
Both forms of calcium are highly soluble and extremely bioavailable. These forms use independent "passive diffusion" in the small intestinal tract, allowing greater absorption, making factors such as stomach acid levels, age, gender, nutrition or hormone status less problematic for calcium absorption.
Magnesium is a key factor for bone strength. Sufficient amounts are required to ensure proper calcium utilization, thereby preventing calcium deposits in soft tissue. A study by Dr. Abraham that used a 1.2:1 magnesium to calcium ratio, along with co-factors, resulted in a significant 11% increase in bone mass compared to only 0.7% in the control group.
Vitamin D has been added to facilitate the adequate absorption of calcium (including dietary sources) at the vitamin D dependant, active transport sites.
Zinc has been added to assist bone matrix synthesis.
