Cal-Mag-Zinc Liquid offers three essential minerals (calcium, magnesium and zinc) in perfect ratios plus additional minerals vital for optimal bone health. Cal-Mag-Zinc Liquid also contains Vitamin D3, an important component in managing optimal bone metabolism. Unlike other dosage forms that may be difficult to assimilate, our liquid delivery system offers optimal absorption and maximum benefits.
Calcium is the main mineral that makes up your bones. It adds strength and rigidity to bones, which is needed to support the body. It is estimated that almost 100% of women and 90-95% of men over the age of 50 in the United States fail to consume optimal levels of dietary calcium. When you don’t consume enough calcium in your diet to maintain sufficient levels in the bloodstream, your body draws the calcium it requires from your bones. The result is decreased bone density and an increased risk of fragility and fractures.
Magnesium is also an essential mineral for normal skeletal development. It influences mineral and matrix metabolism in bone by a combination of effects on hormones and other factors that regulate skeletal, mineral metabolism, and by direct effects on bone itself. Approximately 60% of the body’s magnesium is located in bone. Several studies indicate that the standard American diet is deficient in magnesium and may contribute to bone degeneration. Magnesium activates the enzyme alkaline phosphatase, which is necessary for calcium bone re-absorption (increase in bone density).
Zinc is needed for the synthesis of some amino acids used in the formation of collagen protein, which is the base of bone, onto which calcium is deposited. A zinc deficiency will seriously impede bone building and bone strength.
Finally, Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) and its active metabolite 1,25-(OH)2D3 (calcitrol) is a well established regulator of bone mineral balance. Vitamin D3 is necessary to ensure proper serum levels of calcium and phosphate. This is essential for promoting optimal bone development. Clinical trials have demonstrated that supplementing with vitamin D3 can significantly improve bone density.
