Cal-Mag-Zinc (Vanilla-Orange) 16 oz Liquid
Cal-Mag-Zinc Liquid offers three essential minerals (Calcium, Magnesium and Zinc) in perfect ratios plus additional minerals vital for optimal bone health. Unlike other dosage forms that may be difficult to assimilate, our liquid delivery system offers optimal absorption and maximum benefits. Calcium is the main mineral that makes up bone. It adds strength and rigidity to bones, which is needed to support the body. It is estimated that almost 100% of women and 90-95% of men over the age of 50 in the United States fail to consume optimal levels of dietary calcium. When we don't consume enough calcium in our diet to maintain sufficient levels in the bloodstream, our bodies draw calcium they require from our bones. The result is decreased bone density and an increased risk of fragility and fractures. Magnesium is also an essential mineral for normal skeletal development. It influences mineral and matrix metabolism in bone by a combination of effects on hormones and other factors that regulate skeletal, mineral metabolism, and by direct effects on bone itself. Approximately 60% of the body's magnesium is located in bone. Several studies indicate that the standard American diet is deficient in magnesium and may contribute to bone degeneration. Magnesium activates the enzyme alkaline phosphatase, which is necessary for calcium bone re-absorption (increase in bone density). Zinc is needed for the synthesis of some amino acids used in the formation of collagen protein, which is the base of bone, onto which calcium is deposited. A zinc deficiency will seriously impede bone building and bone strength. Finally, Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) and its active metabolite 1,25-(OH)2D3 (calcitrol) is a well established regulator of bone mineral balance. Vitamin D3 is necessary to ensure proper serum levels of calcium and phosphate. This is essential for promoting optimal bone development. Clinical trials have demonstrated that supplementing with vitamin D3 can significantly improve bone density. Key Ingredients: Calcium is an essential mineral crucial for maintaining strong bones and teeth and fortifying cartilage. Although calcium is the central factor in supporting healthy bone mass, it is also needed by the body to support the heart and blood clotting mechanisms. Magnesium, another essential mineral, also promotes bone and cartilage health, in part by helping the body convert vitamin D into a usable form. Magnesium helps the body maintain healthy blood pressure, normal heart rhythms, and good circulation (especially in fingertips and toes). Trace minerals particularly manganese and zinc encourage the absorption of other minerals and help promote overall bone health.
