Good but can be better as well!
Posted by Supplementsdiy on Nov 17, 2013
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!
The tablet size is rather big

I bought this because of its ingredients - it has 500mg of calcium and 250mg of magnesium for every 2 tablets (recommended dosage: 600mg of Calcium & 400mg Magnesium - read an article from Dr. Oz website). After 2 weeks of taking this supplement, I notice my nails are much stronger than before :) I just wish that the tablet size is smaller.

Bought to reduce menstrual cramps. No significant effect so far. Was taking it for about 3 weeks. Will continue to take. Hope to see an effect soon.
Great but big caps!
