What Is It?
Calcium Magnesium (malate) 2:1 combines di-calcium malate and di-magnesium malate in a 2:1 ratio for the highest elemental calcium and magnesium per capsule. These minerals are fully chelated with Krebs cycle intermediate malate for optimal absorption.
Uses For Calcium Magnesium (malate) 2:1
Bone Support: Randomized, double blind, placebocontrolled studies have reported statistically significant benefits of calcium supplementation for bone health and osteoporosis support†. Magnesium, like calcium, is an essential bone matrix mineral that promotes healthy bone metabolism. A trial involving 2,038 older individuals indicated that higher intakes of magnesium were positively associated with bone mineralization for certain individuals. Supplementation with calcium and magnesium provides synergistic support for bone health.*
†Risk factors for osteoporosis include sex, race, age and inadequate calcium intake. Populations at highest risk for osteoporosis include Caucasian, Asian, postmenopausal women, and elderly women and men. Adequate calcium intake throughout life is linked to a reduced risk of osteoporosis, as calcium helps to optimize peak bone mass during adolescence and early adulthood in conjunction with exercise and healthy diet. Calcium intake greater than 2,000 mg per day has no further known benefit to bone health. Cardiovascular Support: Magnesium supports cardiovascular health by helping to maintain healthy levels of cellular and plasma electrolytes, including calcium and potassium. Calcium also promotes healthy receptor function. Additionally, calcium and magnesium may help to promote healthy lipid metabolism.*
