Cal-6 + Mg.™ may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to increase their intake of calcium and other nutritional factors for maintaining the function and structure of their bones.
The adult human body contains approximately 1,200g of calcium, about 99% of which is present in the skeleton, and 20-30 g of magnesium with about 60%located in bone. Bone is constantly turning over, a continuous process of formation and resorption. In children and adolescents, the rate of formation of bone mineral predominates over the rate of resorption. In later life, resorption predominates overformation. Therefore, in normal aging, there is a gradual loss of bone.
Osteoporosis, a condition of reduced bone mineral density that can increase risk of fractures, affects a large proportion of the elderly in developed countries. Caucasian and Asian women typically have low peak bone densities and therefore, are at the greatest risk of developing osteoporosis. It is generally accepted that obtaining enough dietary calcium throughout life can significantly decrease the risk of developing osteoporosis. Among other factors, such as regular exercise, gender and race, calcium supplementation during childhood and adolescence appears to be a prerequisite for maintaining adequate bone density later in life. But even elderly osteoporotic patient scan benefit significantly from supplementation with dietary calcium.
Cal-6 + Mg.™,provides a highly beneficial source of dietary calcium together with other nutrients that assist in the maintenance of healthy bone structure and function. For example, boron affects the composition, structure and strength of bone. It appears to be necessary for calcium and magnesium absorption, their adequate renal reabsorption and their incorporation into the bone matrix. Boron is absorbed at about 90% efficiency and is rapidly distributed among the tissues.
Adults take 1 tablet before each meal or as directed by physician.
