Calcium is required for strong bones, teeth and
cardiac function. Calcium citrate may be the preferred form of calcium
for those with low stomach acid. Magnesium is equally important and
supports muscle and bone health as well as many other functions.
Studies show that mineral citrates and malates have superior absorption,
even when taken on an empty stomach. Each capsule has calcium and
magnesium in a one-to-one ratio that many health professionals
recommend. As well as protecting the body from stress, magnesium works
with calcium to provide help to these same body systems and participates
in more than 50 different biochemical reactions.
Natural Factors adds other minerals, including manganese, potassium and
zinc, that are also in citrate form for better absorption and
utilization by cells in the body. These contribute to bone strength.
Vitamin D is included because it acts as a hormone that allows the body
to absorb and properly use calcium.
