Natural Factors: Calcium & Magnesium 2:1 (180 Capsules) is ideal for the normal development and maintenance of bones and teeth.

Contains calcium and magnesium in a 2:1 ratio, a ratio recommended by many health care practitioners. The chelated form is tolerated better by those with allergies to citric products. Betaine hydrochloride is a digestive aid that increases stomach acidity and helps mineral absorption.

Calcium is required for strong bones, teeth and cardiac function. Calcium not only builds strong bones and teeth but maintains bone density and strength. It helps to regulate heartbeat, blood clotting and muscle contraction. Calcium may also prevent certain cancers, particularly colon cancer.

Calcium and magnesium are closely interconnected. Magnesium protects the body from stress, works with calcium in the same body systems, and participates in more than 50 different biochemical reactions. That's why magnesium is so important to bone formation, nerve and muscle transmission, and energy production.

Vitamin D is included because it acts as a hormone that allows the body to absorb and properly use calcium.

Cautions

  • The bone building drug etidronate (Didronel®) and tetracycline antibiotics should not be taken within 2 hours of calcium supplements as the calcium may decrease their effectiveness.

  • If you are taking any of these drugs, consult your health care practitioner before taking a calcium supplement.
