Two vital elements for good health are calcium and magnesium. However, 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 also important for preventing a number of health issues.  To function properly, calcium 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 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 along with copper, zinc, potassium, vitamin D and other nutrients.

Each tablet delivers 500 mg of very high quality calcium that is easily absorbed. Also included in this formula are vitamin D, magnesium, boron and betaine hydrochloride.
