"After being told about the dangers of menopause and osteoporosis, I recently started taking this product to boost my bone strength. But I learnt from watching a BBC documentary on ageing that calcium alone will not boost bone density. You also need the recommended amounts of magnesium and vitamin D for the calcium to be deposited in the bones. This product meets all the requirements and the price is pretty reasonable."

The better answer for strong, healthy bones! Calcium may get most of the attention, but nutritionists will tell you that it takes more than calcium to maintain strong bones; it takes a healthy ratio of calcium to magnesium. This special mineral formula features the ideal 2-to-1 ratio of calcium to magnesium with 150 mg of calcium and 75 mg of magnesium per capsule, plus 200IU of Vitamin D-3.
According to studies, the combination of calcium and magnesium works wonderfully for the body. Research has confirmed that magnesium promotes better absorption of calcium. Calcium and magnesium work together to provide health benefits.
Calcium, the most important components of bones, is the vital nutrient in the body's development. Derived from mainly dairy products, calcium forms the core of bones. It is required by the osteoclasts (bone cells) to form bones. It improves the density of bones, making them strong and healthy. Regular consumption of calcium supplements helps in reducing the risk of osteoporosis and fractures.
Health benefits of calcium extend beyond bones. It helps in preventing the risk of breast cancer and colorectal cancer. Researchers at the University of Minnesota Cancer Center reported that women who consumed calcium on a daily basis (800 to 1000 mg) reduced their risk of colorectal cancer by 26 to 46 percent. However, more studies are needed to confirm the action of this vital nutrient in preventing the occurance of cancer. Also, calcium-rich diet helps to maintain weight after menopause in women.
Magnesium is an important mineral that helps in various cell metabolic activities. This important mineral is essential for proper nerve transmission, better muscle contraction and relaxation and breakdown of fats, carbohydrates and proteins for energy. This vital nutrient is often missing from our fast food diet, and therefore we need to supplement it from outside.
This trace mineral, when taken together with calcium improves the overall range of motion and strength of the bone. Both calcium and magnesium work together with vitamin D to promote healthy bone structure.
