The May product of the month focuses on two very essential building blocks in the minerals that make up our bodies: magnesium and calcium.
Our Mag/Cal and Cal/Mag contain the same ingredients with one difference: the ratios of calcium and magnesium.
Calcium and Magnesium Working Together
We combine Calcium and Magnesium together rather than have two separate products for each mineral because these minerals work together to perform body function. These minerals have to be balanced with each other in order to work properly. and have been formulated with these balances. For more information on calcium and magnesium balance, watch the video below:
Mag/Cal contains a 7:5 ratio of magnesium and calcium. The Mag/Cal in a 7:5 ratio provides magnesium that is not as readily-available in our diets as calcium and can be taken by anyone as a maintenance supplement. Magnesium is a very important part of maintaining the body, being responsible for many of the body’s functions. A deficiency may lead to a variety of health issues. The Magnesium included in this formula is multiform, increasing the mineral’s chances of being absorbed into your body.
Cal/Mag in a 1:1 ratio contains as much calcium as magnesium because magnesium supports the absorption of this calcium for more benefits from the calcium. This formula benefits those with fractured or broken bones, premenopausal women, and those with calcium deficiency.
Vitamin D is also included to help absorb calcium.
Supplements and Diet Go Together!
It’s not always easy getting all the vitamins and minerals you need when it comes to visiting family, going out with friends, holidays, or eating on the go. It’s great having supplement options to ensure that you are getting the minerals you need!
Nevertheless, diet is an important part of your health. You may not be able to always make the right diet decisions Planning day-to-day meals and considering where you are getting your sources of nutrients is an important part of obtaining optimal results from any supplement or nutritional support.
Some of you may wonder from time to time “Is it better to get calcium and/or magnesium from plant sources or can you absorb it from animal sources as well?” Our formulation is purely vegetable source, leaving the decision of adding animal-based nutrients up to you!
Many know that cheese, milk and yogurt contain calcium. For various health reasons, some may want to consider replacing these with natural sources of calcium. There are also plenty of sources of magnesium in our food.
Be safe and well this spring!
