Cal Mag (1000 Iu) Vit D3 Liquid
Calcium has been one of the most supplemented nutrients in the world ever since it was acknowledged for its crucial role in bone mineral density. However, research has come quite a long way since this discovery, acknowledging the importance of other nutrients such as magnesium and vitamin D3 for skeletal health.
Moreover, these nutrients work together to improve health outcomes outside the realm of bone health. Various blends of calcium, magnesium and vitamin D3 have shown to be beneficial in clinical trials related to premenstrual cramping, muscle cramping, leg cramps in pregnancy, preeclampsia and even heartburn.
These three nutrients have unique and interconnected relationships. The actions of calcium and magnesium oppose one another in the musculoskeletal system, with calcium needed for muscle contraction and magnesium needed for muscle relaxation. Vitamin D3 is needed for calcium absorption from the digestive tract, while magnesium is needed to activate enzymes related to vitamin D3 metabolism. In fact, individuals that are magnesium-replete are much less likely to be vitamin D3 deficient. A deficiency in any one of these nutrients can disrupt the overall balance in the body.
Although there is no definitive research to declare the optimal ratio of calcium to magnesium, evidence does show that high calcium diets can lower magnesium stores and decrease magnesium absorption. With this in mind, a 2:1 or 3:1 ratio of calcium to magnesium is generally accepted as well-balanced in the general population.
Mineral form can greatly impact absorption rates. Research shows that calcium citrate is significantly better absorbed when compared to calcium carbonate. Citrate forms do not require adequate stomach acid to be optimally absorbed, unlike calcium carbonate which is severely impacted by low stomach acid.
