Liquid Ionic Calcium-Magnesium Mineral Concentrate
An advanced aqueous form of Calcium and Magnesium Ions (IsoIonic™) in clear solution for quicker absorption than tablets or capsules which must first dissolve in the digestive system before being absorbed. Patented, clinically tested professional grade CHD-Fulvic Acid has been added to further increase absorption and enhance overall well-being as fulvic acid has natural anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and detoxification properties.
The FDA concluded that "Adequate calcium throughout life, as part of a well-balanced diet, may reduce their risk of osteoporosis later in life."
Calcium & Magnesium (Cal/Mag) Helps to Support:
- Healthy bones
- Regular sleep
- Healthy gums and teeth
- Premenstrual cycle
- Stress relief
- Healthy muscles
- Positive moods
Complementary Minerals for Good Health
Biologically interlocked, Magnesium and Calcium (Cal/Mag supplements) work together for a number of critical bodily functions including building strong bones, regulating the heartbeat and contracting the muscles. Boron, a trace mineral, is crucial to the assimilation of both Calcium and Magnesium. Our unique Cal/Mag formula ensures the maximum benefit by providing Calcium and Magnesium in the optimum ratio and boosting their absorption with Boron.
In proper balance, the body better absorbs and assimilates the calcium it needs and allows unused calcium to migrate out of body tissue and organs where it does not belong. By having calcium and magnesium in one cal/mag solution, Mineralife Cal/Mag ensures that your body will get the maximum benefits from both calcium and magnesium.
Why Mineralife Cal/Mag Supplement?
- Prepared from a pure elemental source
- Angstrom-sized, water soluble minerals (IsoIonic™) provide the greatest absorption and utilization in the body.
- Formulated using our patent-pending MET water, a multi-step purified energy enhanced water that helps activate minerals into their electronically charged ionic state for maximum benefit
- Contains CHD-FA to enhance absorption and overall well-being
- 1 cap-full provides 9% of the Daily Value for Calcium, 16% of the Daily Value for Magnesium and 500mcg of Boron.
- 8oz bottle provides 48 day supply of calcium and magnesium.
How Calcium and Magnesium Can Slow Down Aging (according to Nan Kathryn Fuchs)
If you're like most women and take 1,500 mg of calcium and half as much magnesium, you've got it all backwards. You're getting too much calcium and not enough magnesium. I've been telling women since 1985, when my first book, The Nutrition Detective, was published that if you want to slow down your aging process, look at the amount of calcium and magnesium in your food and supplements, and begin making some changes today.
Nothing can make you feel old faster than slipping and breaking your arm or hip and having your movements limited. Or having a heart attack; That's why two common minerals come first in any anti-aging program I give my patients. Although they're not usually thought of in this manner, calcium and magnesium truly influence many conditions associated with aging. The correct balance of calcium and magnesium can affect osteoporosis, heart disease, blood pressure, depression, and anxiety. In my opinion, some of the worst effects of aging are those that limit the quality of our lives and reduce our vitality.
If you're taking the wrong balance of calcium and magnesium, you may be creating a vicious cycle. High calcium intake blocks magnesium absorption. Magnesium is needed to carry calcium into your bones. Too much calcium can cause bones to be more fragile, while high magnesium creates stronger bones. Consider taking 500 mg each of calcium and magnesium. Then gradually increase your magnesium (up to a total of 1,000 mg/day) until you have comfortably loose stools.
Calcium, magnesium, and your heart
A healthy heart is a supple muscle with unclogged arteries that allows good blood flow and has a regular heartbeat. Calcium causes all muscles, including the heart, to contract, while magnesium helps them relax. The correct mineral balance is particularly important in healthy heart function. You want your heart muscle to both contract and relax. Too many contractions can result in irregular heartbeats, cause a stroke, or heart attack. In fact, increasing magnesium often eliminates or reduces arrhythmias.
Magnesium helps blood pressure become and stay regulated, reduces the formation of plaque in arteries, and reduces spasms. Thomas Steinmetz is a nutritionist and researcher with a German organic minerals company. He looked at the cause of death from sudden heart attacks in the U.S. between 1940 and 1994. What he found was startling: A magnesium deficiency was the cause of death in eight million people! This was totally preventable with proper supplementation and diet.
To prevent clogged arteries, look to calcium and magnesium. When calcium can't get into your bones or other tissues because there isn't enough magnesium to help move it there, it can collect in your arteries, which leads to atherosclerosis. If it causes a blockage, you may have a heart attack, increasingly common in postmenopausal women. If it narrows enough to allow small pieces of plaque to get caught, then dilates so the plaque can be released, you could have a stroke. Low magnesium has been seen in people with irregular or rapid heartbeat, mitral valve prolapse, congestive heart failure, and high blood pressure.
So how does magnesium help your heart?
- It prevents muscle spasms.
- It keeps your blood flowing smoothly.
- It helps raise good (HDL) cholesterol.
- It helps maintain normal blood pressure.
- It keeps a regular heartbeat.
The same ratio of calcium to magnesium you take to keep your bones strong and flexible will also keep you young at heart. In addition to our ciliminerals liquid bone support supplements, get more magnesium into your diet by emphasizing whole grains and beans, and limit dairy to one portion a day at most.
Calcium, magnesium, and aging emotionally
When you're under stress your body loses more magnesium than usual. Stress causes your adrenal glands to produce more adrenaline and other hormones, like cortisol, causing more magnesium excretion. When your magnesium is low, your adrenal glands produce still more cortisol, which in turn decreases your levels of DHEA. DHEA is a hormone considered to be an anti-aging nutrient. Stress causes fatty acids to be released in your body and attach themselves to magnesium, which makes it more difficult for magnesium to be absorbed.
When you're under stress, increase your magnesium and keep calcium levels reasonable, not high. This may help you reduce depression and anxiety. Temporarily reduce your supplemental calcium to 500 mg a day, eat less dairy, and increase your magnesium to bowel tolerance. If you're concerned with the physical and emotional aspects of aging, examine your calcium and magnesium levels, and adjust them if necessary. They're two of your most important anti-aging nutrients.
