Calcium and magnesium are essential minerals. They are required for the maintenance of normal bones and teeth and contribute to normal muscle function and normal signal transmission between nerve cells. They are also important for energy metabolism.
Both minerals are closely linked in metabolism and have opposite effects in certain physiological areas. Magnesium also plays a role in optimal calcium utilisation.
CalMag 2:1 is a combined calcium-magnesium preparation that contains calcium and magnesium in a balanced ratio of 2:1. This avoids a one-sided intake and enables the body to benefit optimally from both minerals. CalMag 2:1 contains calcium and magnesium in the form of natural chelate complexes as aspartate, citrate and glycinate, which can be absorbed and utilised well. Calcium carbonate and magnesium oxide are also included.
