Our product has been formulated for optimum absorption of Calcium with
vitamin D3. Addition of Magnesium is for improved bone density and Zinc is to
help improve the immune system.
one of the four major nutrients adults and children consistently do not get
enough of, according to the USDA 2010 guidelines for Americans. Your body can
store calcium, but it can’t produce it. That’s why you must get the calcium you
need from foods, beverages, and dietary supplements.Consuming adequate calcium throughout life may reduce the risk of
osteoporosis, a disorder that affects more than 10 million American adults, of
whom 80% are women.Calcium absorption is highest during periods of intense growth, such as
childhood and pregnancy, as rapidly growing bones spur the high demand for the
mineral. With the exception of pregnancy, calcium absorption starts decreasing
during adulthood and continues to decrease with age.The first few years after menopause begins mark rapid calcium loss from
bones in women. Estrogen production decreases, which causes more bone breakdown
and decreased calcium absorption from foods and dietary supplements.
Recommended calcium consumption increases for women at age 51, the time menopause

sardines and canned salmon.
Vitamin D is
a fat-soluble vitamin that helps your body absorb calcium and phosphorus.
Having the right amount of vitamin D, calcium, and phosphorus is important for
building and keeping strong bones.Your body must have vitamin D to absorb calcium and promote bone growth.
Too little vitamin D results in soft bones in children (rickets) and fragile,
misshapen bones in adults (osteomalacia). You also need vitamin D for other
important body functions.In its active form as calcitriol, vitamin D contributes to skin cell growth,
repair, and metabolism. It optimizes the skin's immune system and helps destroy
free radicals that can cause premature aging. While the body can produce
vitamin D on its own through sun exposure, too much sun accelerates skin aging.
Here are 8
signs and symptoms of vitamin D deficiency.

a nutrient that the body needs to stay healthy. Magnesium is important for many
processes in the body, including regulating muscle and nerve function, blood
sugar levels, and blood pressure and making protein, bone, and DNA.
some examples of research on effects of magnesium on health.
pressure and heart disease:
High blood pressure is a major risk factor for heart disease and stroke.
Magnesium supplements might decrease blood pressure, but only by a small
amount. Some studies show that people who have more magnesium in their diets
have a lower risk of some types of heart disease and stroke. But in many of
these studies, it’s hard to know how much of the effect was due to magnesium as
opposed to other nutrients.
People with higher amounts of magnesium in their diets tend to have a
lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Magnesium helps the body break down
sugars and might help reduce the risk of insulin resistance (a condition that
leads to diabetes). Scientists are studying whether magnesium supplements might
help people who already have type 2 diabetes control their disease. More
research is needed to better understand whether magnesium can help treat
Magnesium is important for healthy bones. People with higher intakes of
magnesium have a higher bone mineral density, which is important in reducing
the risk of bone fractures and osteoporosis. Getting more magnesium from foods
or dietary supplements might help older women improve their bone mineral
density. More research is needed to better understand whether magnesium
supplements can help reduce the risk of osteoporosis or treat this condition.
People who have migraine headaches sometimes have low levels of magnesium
in their blood and other tissues. Several small studies found that magnesium
supplements can modestly reduce the frequency of migraines. However, people
should only take magnesium for this purpose under the care of a healthcare
provider. More research is needed to determine whether magnesium supplements
can help reduce the risk of migraines or ease migraine symptoms.
Zinc is used
for treatment and prevention of zinc deficiency and its consequences, including
stunted growth and acute diarrhea in children, and slow wound healing. Zinc is
needed for the proper growth and maintenance of the human body. It is found in
several systems and biological reactions, and it is needed for immune function,
wound healing, blood clotting, thyroid function, and much more. Meats, seafood,
dairy products, nuts, legumes, and whole grains offer relatively high levels of
It is also used for boosting the immune system, treating the common cold
and recurrent ear infections, and preventing lower respiratory infections. It
is also used for malaria and other diseases caused by parasites.
Some people use zinc for an eye disease called macular degeneration, for
night blindness, and for cataracts. It is also used for asthma; diabetes; high
blood pressure; acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS); and skin conditions
such as psoriasis, eczema, and acne.
Other uses include treating attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder
(ADHD), blunted sense of taste (hypogeusia), ringing in the ears (tinnitus),
severe head injuries, Crohn’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, Down syndrome,
Hansen’s disease, ulcerative colitis, peptic ulcers and promoting weight gain
in people with eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa.
Some people use zinc for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), male
infertility, erectile dysfunction (ED), weak bones (osteoporosis), rheumatoid
arthritis, and muscle cramps associated with liver disease. It is also used for
sickle cell disease and inherited disorders such as acrodermatitis
enteropathica, thalassemia, and Wilson’s disease.
Some athletes use zinc for improving athletic performance and strength.
