Calcium Info

Calcium is an essential ‘macromineral’ – required by the body in large quantities – and a critical nutrient during preconception, pregnancy and breastfeeding. Our bodies require more calcium than any other mineral.

The balance of magnesium to calcium is vital for healthy function and particularly to prevent calcification and calcium deposits forming everywhere from the microcellular level through to tissues and organs. A ratio of no more than 2:1 calcium to magnesium is needed by the body for optimal functioning.

Also essential to correct calcium absorption are adequate levels of vitamin D, silica, boron, dietary fat intake and hydrochloric acid production in the stomach. Too much dietary fibre, sodium, and caffeine can reduce calcium absorption.

Calcium Benefits

Our bones contain 98% of our calcium stores, our teeth 1% and the remaining 1% is a vital element in blood clotting, neurotransmission, digestive enzyme activity, insulin secretion, regulating heartbeat and muscle contraction.

Maintaining optimal calcium levels keeps bones strong and healthy, improves weight management, stabilises blood pressure and protects your heart, eases premenstrual tension and reduces the risk of colon cancer. The best form of supplementation provides a balanced, bioavailable mineral formula, and focuses on enhancing our body’s absorption rate of calcium from food sources.

Calcium Side Effects

There are health risks associated with elevated blood calcium levels, so it’s important not to over-supplement. It is not advisable to take a stand alone calcium supplement over the long term without professional guidance.

    I have found this to be the best menopause supplement for me. Reduces hot flushes. I take one tablet at night, and am able to sleep through the night.

  • Fantastic Find!

    star

    I was referred to taking magnesium due to muscle tension and re-occurring headaches by a pharmacist - whilst I was getting a prescription for muscle relaxers. This product has been fantastic at alleviating that tension. I take twice a day, once in the morning and again at night. It has made a huge difference for me. I have got my parents and aunty onto the product as well.
