Other nutrients are also included to assist the body in maintaining healthy bone structure. Health Functions:
Cal//Mag 2001 may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to increase their intake of calcium and other nutritional factors for maintaining good bone health.
The adult human body contains approximately 1,200 g 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 over formation. 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 patients can benefit significantly from supplementation with dietary calcium.
Cal/Mag 2001 provides a highly beneficial source of dietary calcium together with other nutrients that assist in the maintenance of healthy bone structure and function. Ingredients:
