According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF) in Washington, D.C., calcium is a mineral that is essential for life, yet the majority of Americans do not get adequate calcium on a daily basis. Calcium plays an important role in building stronger, denser bones early in life and keeping bones strong and healthy later in life.
About 99 percent of the calcium in our bodies is found in our bones and teeth. In addition to building and maintaining healthy bones, calcium allows blood to clot, nerves to send messages, muscles to contract and other body functions.
Each day, our bodies lose calcium through skin, nails, hair, sweat, and elimination. The human body cannot produce calcium on its own. That's why it's important to try to get enough calcium through the foods we eat. When the diet does not have enough calcium for our body's needs, calcium is taken from the bones.
According to NOF recommendations:
- Adults under age 50 need a total of 1,000 mg of calcium from all sources and 400-800 IU of vitamin D daily.
- Adults 50 and over need a total of 1,200 mg of calcium from all sources and 800-1,000 IU of vitamin D daily.
Magnesium, calcium's macronutrient counterpart, builds and strengthens bones, relaxes our muscles and nerves (important in maintaining healthy blood pressure levels), and keeps blood circulating smoothly.
Magnesium is found mostly in our bones (60-65%), and muscles (25%). Like all minerals, the human body cannot make magnesium and therefore must rely on proper diet and supplements.
Vitamin D, especially in its most active form, D3, stimulates the absorption of calcium and increases bone mineral density.
Each vegetable capsule contains 600 mg coral minerals, 600 mg magnesium chelate, and 800 IU vitamin D-3.
No fillers or additives, no flow agents, no magnesium stearate. All natural.
Suggested Use: Adults, take 1 to 2 capsules a day.
