Calcium and Magnesium are minerals primarily known for their contribution to bone health and the prevention of osteoporosis. Supplementation of these two nutrients helps to prevent bone deterioration in postmenopausal women. An estimated one in four postmenopausal women has osteoporosis. Health First Calcium & Magnesium has added Vitamin D for increased Calcium absorption and Zinc to prevent Zinc depletion during Calcium and Magnesium absorption. Health First’s formula uses the citrate form of minerals, recommended for superior absorption. Studies have shown Calcium Citrate to be four times more absorbable than Calcium from Carbonate sources. Calcium and Magnesium are also important in regulating high blood pressure. Calcium and Vitamin D are factors in the normal development and maintenance of bones and teeth, especially in infancy and childhood.
