Seeking Health Calcium Magnesium Plus D3 Chewable provides bioavailable citrate forms of calcium and magnesium together with natural vitamin D in convenient chewable wafers, essential minerals that work in concert with vitamin D to support healthy bone formation, bone mineral density, and bone strength. 120 tablets
Calcium and magnesium citrates are supplied in a 2:1 ratio with natural vitamin D3 in convenient chewable wafers. Magnesium complements calcium and vitamin D by supporting bone strength and remodeling. It is also vital for energy production and proper cardiovascular function.
Dietary calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D are frequently lower than recommended, especially for persons on restricted diets. The ability to ingest and absorb adequate amounts of these nutrients may be further impaired following bariatric surgery.
Calcium Magnesium Plus D3 Chewable may be of particular benefit for persons with impaired gastrointestinal function following illness or surgery.
Calcium citrate is a highly absorbable, well-tolerated source of calcium. It is formed by bonding calcium to citric acid, a naturally-occurring fruit acid. Calcium citrate is readily soluble and has been shown to have superior absorption compared to many calcium supplements including calcium carbonate or the calcium from milk. It is easily digested and absorbed equally well with or without food. The amount of calcium in this product is balanced with magnesium in a 2:1 ratio.
Magnesium citrate is a readily-soluble, supplemental form of magnesium. Magnesium citrate is better absorbed by individuals with hypochlorhydria (low levels of stomach acid) compared to less soluble forms of magnesium such as magnesium oxide.
Natural vitamin D3 is included to assist calcium absorption, thus enhancing benefits for bone health. This fat-soluble vitamin occurs naturally in only a few foods, thus is often fortified in milk and other products. Vitamin D can also be formed in the body upon adequate exposure of the skin to sunlight. Its major biological function is to maintain normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus to form and maintain strong bones. Vitamin D also works with a number of other vitamins, minerals, and hormones to promote bone mineralization, glucose metabolism, neuromuscular function, and overall health.Calcium Magnesium Plus D3 Chewable may be used with a multiple vitamin/mineral supplement to boost daily intake of calcium, magnesium and vitamin D intake when necessary.
Frequently Asked Questions
What does this formulation consist of?
This calcium supplement is formulated to support bone healh in a more comprehensive and effective manner than taking calcium alone. Easy-to-absorb calcium citrate is combined with magnesium, another mineral important for bone health. Natural vitamin D is included to further assist calcium utilization and enhance proper bone formation.
Why is calcium citrate used as the form of calcium?
By attaching calcium to citric acid, a very soluble calcium compound is formed that is significantly more absorbable compared to many other forms of calcium. Calcium citrate is also very safe and well-tolerated. It does not produce intestinal discomfort, constipation, or gas like some forms of calcium.
How does magnesium and vitamin D support bone health?
Proper calcium utilization is crucial to reduce the risk of osteoporosis, a progressive bone disease influenced by age, sex, race, exercise, and many other dietary and lifestyle factors. Magnesium is also necessary for healthy bones as it supports bone strength and remodeling. Vitamin D is essential for calcium absorption and bone mineral density. The combined actions of these nutrients create a more comprehensive approach to maintaining bone health.
Who should take this formulation?
This product is intended for individuals wishing to supplement their dietary intake with bioavailable forms of calcium and magnesium to promote bone health. It may help teenagers and young adult women optimize peak bone mass and reduce the risk of osteoporosis late in life. It may also help slow the rate of bone loss in menopausal women, and those with a family history of osteoporosis.
How many tablets should I take?
Two tablets twice daily with food recommended. This will supply 500mg of calcium (50Z% of the RDA) and 250mg of magnesium ((63% of the RDA). These amounts are intended to complement the calcium and magnesium content in food and to be compatible with the calcium and magnesium supplied by the multivitamin/mineral supplements.
Dr. Ben Lynch, founder and Chief Medical Officer of Seeking Health, is a naturopathic physician. While majoring in Cell and Molecular biology at the University of Washington, Dr. Ben took a trip through the South Pacific and Southeast Asia that changed his outlook on traditional medicine, and his life.
During this trip, Dr. Ben hiked through the forests, mountains and coasts of Tasmania, worked a cattle ranch in the Outback of Australia, and volunteered with Mother Theresa in Calcutta. He lived in Fiji with a family having no electricity or plumbing, experienced the Himalayan Mountains of Northern India, worked a fruit orchard in New Zealand, and returned to America with an impression of a different form of medicine than he had ever experienced with his mainstream medical education.
This profound experience led Dr. Ben to Bastyr University, and he studied the Mind-Body Connection, Environmental Medicine, Functional Medicine, and Epigenetics.
Dr. Ben saw the huge need for people to obtain foundational nutrients, and Seeking Health was born. Without foundational nutrients, biochemical dysfunction occurs and causes symptoms. Doctor after doctor and person after person do not understand the absolute requirement for our bodies to have the tools to maintain function.
“If one supports their bodily systems, especially their digestion and mental health, with pure, highly absorbable, well-formulated nutrients, the ability to remain healthy and vital significantly increases. We want your foundation rock solid and we provide the tools to do so.”
-Dr. Ben Lynch, founder of Seeking Health
