|†Country Life always labels minerals in elemental weight.|
As a nutritionist, I have been recommending and taking this formula for over 15 years. I know when a client takes Target-Mins Cal/Mag, they are taking a product which is highly absorpable and contains the body's natural calcium/magnesium ratio (2:1). The minerals are of excellent quality and time after time, my clients get the results they are looking for.
This is a pretty good calcium/magnesium formula since it uses amino acids to bind to the cal/mag so that it can be absorbed through the intestine wall instead of getting pas sed out. The weights are labelled in their elemental weight. Many cal/mag products do not state the elemental weight so it is hard to tell how much weight there are. The ideal ratio of cal/mag should be 1:1 since magnesium has many other uses (over 300 metabolic functions) as compared to calcium. This product uses 2:1 which isn’t too bad. The tablets are vegan and horse pill size so people might find it hard to swallow. The product also contains unusually many binders and flow agents. A healthy bone consists of many other minerals as well so it’s important to take trace minerals as well. Taking purely cal/mag over a long time will make the bone harder but more brittle as well if the trace minerals are not available. This is best taken with food as well since calcium requires strong acid to break down before absorption. For the best calcium/magnesium formula, try the food based minerals from Garden of Life, New Chapter or MegaFood. They might be more expensive but it’s definitely better. Pricewise, this is very cheap and lasts 3 months so stick to this if you are on budget. Check out my page for more reviews!
Badly sized pills, some broken
Posted by 5495118954609608358 on Jul 26, 2016
I thought pills would help me better than liquid cal. And trusted this brand, since it makes so many great products. Was I wrong though. These pills are enormous, large and chubby, and you have to take two per day, so I had to ingest a lot of liquid to swallow them (and not even comfortably). And nearing 1/3 of the bottle, lots of pills are broken, and are quite pointy and sharp, hurting my throat when swallowing. I'd not buy again, I think its a problem with most calcium pills, but the broken pills are really a waste, since I can't really use them, or risk getting them to harm me.
