Cal/Mag Citrate Capsules, provided by Douglas Laboratories, supply bioavailable calcium and magnesium in citrate form.
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.
The remaining 1% of total body calcium and 40% of total body magnesium are found in the soft tissues and play important roles in such vital functions as nerve conduction, muscle contraction, energy metabolism, blood clotting, membrane permeability, and hormonal signaling.
Blood calcium levels are carefully maintained within very narrow limits by the interplay of several hormones (1,25-dihydroxy-cholecalciferol, parathyroid hormone, calcitonin, estrogen, and testosterone) which control calcium absorption and excretion, as well as bone metabolism.
Cal/Mag Citrate capsules may be a useful dietary supplement for individuals who wish to increase their intake of calcium and magnesium for maintaining good bone health.
