Cali-Mag is a synergistic formulation with Vitamin D3. Cali-Mag can suppress the release of PHT hormone believed to be responsible for causing calcium loss and osteoporosis.
Unlike most other calcium supplements, containing the raw element as it's found in rock, the calcium in Cali-Mag is sustainably extracted from a rare red algae that grows off the pristine shores of Ireland, Lithothamnion Calcareum.
- Made with the highest quality, safest and most effective ingredients available.
- The purest and most bio-available source of organic calcium, grown in the pristine ocean waters off the coast of Iceland.
Reducing PTH hormone levels - responsible for releasing calcium from bone.
Researchers at the University of Colorado have identified that calcium supplements sourced from the red algae Lithothamnion Calcareum (like Cali-Mag) can suppress the release of the PTH hormone! Elevated levels of this hormone later in life is believed to be responsible for causing calcium loss and osteoporosis (particularly during menopause). The researchers identified that the same calcium found in Cali-Mag reduced PTH levels by close to 25%.
Naturally produced calcium suppresses the release of PHT hormones (a key component involved in the release of calcium from bones).
Active Doses of Medical Grade Magnesium Glycinate
Magnesium is a key element involved in bone health, with over 60% of all Magnesium in the body being found in bones. This essential mineral contributes to bone strength, mineralization and, it plays a large role in correct calcium absorption by activating the compound directly involved in Calcium processing (Vitamin D3 - see below). Insufficient Magnesium can therefore result in low calcium absorption (meaning the body is not incorporating enough calcium into the body which may lead to osteoporosis and/or the toxic build up of unabsorbed calcium!)
Magnesium also stimulates calcitonin, a hormone that helps preserve bone structure, draw calcium out of the blood and draw soft tissues back into the bones. This activity lowers risk for developing osteoporosis, heart disease, some types of arthritis and kidney stones.
Cali-Mag is made with Magnesium Glycinate, a medical grade compound produced in the USA. Some of the Magnesisum in Cali-Mag is also plant based, having been accumulated by the algae Lithothamnion Calcareum.
Medical professionals recommend taking Magnesium with Calcium explaining that, without a careful balance of the two, excess unabsorbed calcium can lead to serious health complications!
"If we consume too much calcium without sufficient magnesium, not only will we create stress within the body but the excess calcium won't be utilized correctly and may become toxic"
--Carolyn Dean, MD, ND, Magnesium expert and medical director of the Nutritional Magnesium Association
Magnesium supplements increase bone strength.
A study from Japanese researchers that involved rats suffering from weak bone health, compared the effects of low and high Magnesium supplementation on bone strength. They found rats receiving a higher dose of Magnesium had significantly stronger bones. In fact the energy needed to cause a break was higher than that needed even for rats with healthy bones!
Increased levels of magnesium supplementation improves bone strength to normal levels in rats with poor bone health.
A Synergistic Formulation With Vitamin D3
Vitamin D plays an extremely important role in Calcium absorption and calcium storage in bones. Vitamin D is produced naturally by the body in response to sunlight exposure. Unfortunately, most people presently struggle to generate adequate Vitamin D levels from the sun and regular diet. Cali-Mag compliments the body's in take from the sun and diet, ensuring it gets the amounts required for regular function and bone health.
Synergistic enhancement of calcium absorption and bone health with vitamin D3.
Researchers at the royal college of surgeons in Ireland, studied the synergistic properties of the Calcium found in Cali-Mag with the addition of Vitamin D3. They found Vitamin D3 enhanced calcium's ability to improve the bone health potential, significantly more than calcium would alone.
Packed With Over 70 Essential Trace Minerals
Cali-MAg is a rich source of many different essential trace minerals (over 70!!), each of these take part in various essential functions within the body, often needing to work together. Because these minerals are taken from one natural source, Cali-Mag synergistically enhances the body's overall function rather than focusing on a single aspect of health (this helps maintain the body's natural 'mineral homeostasis').
Increasing bone density, not just reducing loss.
A key advantage of using a calcium supplement from an organic Ocean source is the co-accumulation of over 70 essential trace minerals. In a clinical study from researchers at the University of California found the calcium supplements, with the addition of trace minerals, worked significantly better than those with calcium alone. In fact, this treatment displayed improvement to bone density rather than simply reducing the amount of density loss!!!
Combination treatment with calcium and trace minerals not only reduces bone mineral density loss but increases it.
The Superior Bio-availability of Cali-Mag
A key aspect to supplemental Calcium overlooked by most supplement manufacturers is the difficulty the body has in absorbing the mineral. Traditional Calcium supplement absorption has been shown to be as low as 1% (that's just 10mg of calcium from a giant 1 gram pill). The remaining excess Calcium can cause problems in the body putting strain on the gut and kidneys as they try to process the left over calcium. Cali-Mag has been specially formulated into smaller, easier to swallow and digest, capsules containing the optimal combination of ingredients for maximum absorption and effectiveness.
Cali-Mag has superior Bio-Availability Made With Natural Sources
One benefit to using an natural organic source of Calcium is its superior bio-availability over other inorganic sources. Because it is collected and processed organically, the Calcium in Cali-Mag is chelated with (or bound to) natural compounds that are easily recognizable for the human body. This greatly assists the absorption rate during digestion and promotes accessibility for efficient use in bone health and regular body functioning.
Similarly, Magnesium Glycinate is a cheated compound that mimics the body's natural formation of Magnesium. This makes it easily and highly absorbable. Additionally, the structure of plant based calcium differs from its raw element equivalent. Because it is organically collected the calcium in Cali-Mag is very porous structure (unlike the very compact nature of raw Calcium), this effectively increases the surface area for Calcium in Cali-Mag making it easier for the body to digest.
Synergistically Formulated to Enhance Absorption
The unique combination of ingredients found in Cali-Mag were scientifically selected to maximize its absorption and effectiveness. This synergistic action helps ensure Vision Smart Center clients get the best value for money and strongest results from their bone health supplement.
