Cal/Mag 1:1 provides calcium and magnesium in equal amounts, with 200 mg of each mineral per 2 capsule serving. Although the most commonly recommended dietary ratio for calcium to magnesium is 2:1, magnesium depletion has become very common in the US. Many components of the modern lifestyle increase magnesium loss, including stress (physical or emotional), alcohol or coffee consumption, exercise, excessive sweating, and certain medications such as birth control pills, various antibiotics, and common diuretics. These factors cause many individuals to require extra magnesium to compensate.
The calcium and magnesium in this product are Albion® mineral amino acid chelates for optimal tolerance and absorption.
Chelated calcium and magnesium in a 1:1 ratio
When in balance, calcium and magnesium play vital roles in many areas of human health and work in harmony with each other. For example, calcium is necessary for muscles to contract, while magnesium is needed for muscles to relax; calcium works to stimulate nerves, while magnesium calms the nerves.
Calcium – necessary for proper blood clotting, wound healing, the secretion of hormones and enzymes, nerve transmission, the building of strong bones and teeth, and for inhibiting the build-up of lead in the body.
Magnesium – is one of the most critical minerals in the human body, and is involved in hundreds of enzyme reactions. Magnesium plays a pivotal role in energy production, heart health, the maintenance of proper blood pressure, and in helping to prevent the accumulation of aluminum -a toxic metal implicated in many common degenerative neurological disorders.
Signs and symptoms of magnesium deficiency include fatigue, irritability, becoming easily startled, muscle cramps/twitches, difficulty phasing out background noises, and insomnia.
Who should consider Cal/Mag 1:1?
This product is ideal for people who exhibit signs of a magnesium deficiency (mentioned above) and/or for people whose magnesium levels test low, so that they can help to restore the calcium-magnesium balance.
Albion chelated minerals will result in the highest levels of these minerals in the blood and tissues compared to all other mineral forms on the market!
