Product Overview

Description

  • Dietary Supplement
  • Hypo-Allergenic

While calcium and magnesium are essential minerals for many functions in the body, citric acid (citrate) has significant health benefits of its own. For example, citric acid is essential for energy production. In addition, citric acid enhances the absorption of calcium in the intestines.

Cal-Mag Citrate provides calcium and magnesium in a 1:1 ratio for improved uptake and utilization of calcium.

Calcium and magnesium are the essentials: anthropological evidence indicates humans were high consumers of calcium until the onset of the Agricultural Age 10,000 years ago. Current calcium intake is one-quarter to one-third of our evolutionary diet, indicating we may not be consuming enough dietary calcium. Recent analysis of large numbers of previously conducted studies on calcium and bone mass demonstrate that supplementation of 500 to 1,500 mg of a well-absorbed form of calcium daily promotes bone mass in adolescents, young adults, older men, and postmenopausal women.

Magnesium is present in all cells of the body and is involved in over 300 enzymatic processes, including energy production. Magnesium is essential for maintaining normal bone density, normal cardiac rhythmicity, normal pulmonary function, and normal blood glucose regulation. Other body functions requiring magnesium include nerve conduction, methyl-group transfer, conversion of pyridoxine to pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (the active form of vitamin B6), production of energy, and muscle contraction.

Magnesium supplementation appears to be a significant support to maintaining already normal bone density.

Better Sleep

Posted by 4612120995713906551 on May 05, 2016

I take one of these at night with a Mag Malate from AOR for a much better quality sleep. Really happy with it.

Larger capsules

Posted by 4828874234867250422 on Nov 16, 2015

These capsules are on the larger side and I am unable to take them as regularly as needed, however I have felt a difference overall since using them - when i am able to.

The two knight protecting my bones and heart

Posted by Loredana on Mar 14, 2015

Being a person knowing some chemistry I really find Thorne Research products on the the top of quality of supplements. To be honest, I haven't measured the density of my bones after some time from using calcium and magnesium in citramate form, but I can surely say I feel better.I have no cramps in legs, and my heart function is better also.My denist say my teeth are better than last year. Being under stress all the time, I find my sanctuary in using vitamins and minerals. The last one needs to be highly absorbed in order to manifest their true action.

Citramates are highly absorbable

Posted by vitality on Apr 17, 2012

I find this very effective and absorbable, so much better than other forms of calcium or magnesium. These minerals can also help sleep a little (they're yin tonics). It's important to take trace minerals for bones so I take Thorne pic mins. Doctors Best strontium also helps mineralisation. Don't take with meals as calcium and magnesium neutralise stomach acid.
