Calcium is most well-known for its role in the formation of bone and teeth, but it also plays a role in keeping the heart and muscles functioning by governing muscle contractions. Magnesium is also a constituent of bone and controls potassium and calcium uptake assists in electrical nerve activity, and manages the metabolism of carbohydrates. In the body, phosphorus is second in abundance only to calcium and is necessary for bone growth, cellular health, and acid- alkaline balance.
Magnesium enhances the absorption of calcium and works in tandem with calcium to allow muscles to contract and relax. Combined, these two essential minerals maintain in an intricately linked relationship that supports both muscle and nervous system function.
Benefits at a Glance
Provides Three Forms of Highly-Absorbed Calcium & Magnesium
High-Concentration Calcium & Magnesium for Cardiovascular Support
Helps Maintain Healthy Blood Pressure and Glucose Levels
Promotes Energy Production and Muscle Relaxation
The importance of bioavailability is obvious. If consuming a mineral supplement has little effect on improving the body’s mineral balance, there is no reason to ingest it. Signs of inferior mineral supplements include the use of cheap,
poorly absorbed, rock-salt minerals like calcium carbonate and magnesium oxide (See Figure 1). These mineral forms slow and limit absorption, relying on adequate stomach acid to release calcium ions which then enter the body via passive diffusion. And, because they tend to remain in the intestines longer, these forms of mineral supplements can cause intestinal distress such as constipation (calcium carbonate) or diarrhea (magnesium oxide).
Reacted Cal-Mag provides the benefit of highly-absorbed, Albion® mineral chelates. Albion® is the world leader in manufacturing highly bioavailable mineral chelates, a specialized form of minerals bound to amino acids. This patented process creates organic mineral compounds which use active absorption mechanisms in the gastrointestinal tract to greatly enhance mineral absorption. Comparison studies have shown significantly superior absorption of mineral chelates compared to other mineral forms. In a clinical study comparing calcium absorption in humans, Albion®’s patented calcium chelate delivered the greatest absorption of all calcium sources tested.
