Osteoporosis, a condition of reduced bone mineral density that can increase risk of fractures, affects a large proportion of the elderly in developed countries. It is generally accepted that obtaining enough dietary calcium throughout life can significantly decrease the risk of developing osteoporosis.*
Magnesium plays an essential role in a wide range of fundamental cellular reactions. More than 300 enzymes require magnesium as a cofactor.* Complexed with adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the main carrier of metabolic energy in the body, magnesium is essential for all biosynthetic processes: glycolysis, formation of cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP), energy-dependent membrane transport, transmission of genetic code for protein synthesis, and muscle function. Magnesium is also involved in maintaining already normal heart function and blood pressure*
- May decrease the risk of developing osteoporosis*
- Potentially maintain adequate bone density later in life.*
- Could be important for bone function and structure*
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*
Adults take 2 tablets daily or as directed by physician.*
