Mag 2 Cal 1
Mag 2 Cal 1 tablets, as provided by Douglas Laboratories®, delivers magnesium and calcium in a 2:1 ratio, along with other nutrients to support healthy bone metabolism.
The adult human body contains approximately 20-30 g of magnesium with about 60% located in bone and 1,200 g of calcium, about 99% of which is present in the skeleton. 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.
Mag 2 Cal 1 may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to increase their intake of magnesium and calcium for maintaining the function and structure of their bones as well as many other biosynthetic processes.
