Calcium and magnesium as a supplement
Calcium/Magnesium from Healthwell has a balanced content of the minerals calcium and magnesium. Calcium and magnesium are both important minerals with multiple functions in the body. Magnesium is, for example, needed for the production of protein, normal nerve and muscle function, and it also contributes to the metabolism of calcium in the body. Calcium, in turn, is necessary for the formation of bones and teeth, for the blood to coagulate, and for ensuring normal function of the nerves. Healthwell Calcium/Magnesium also has added vitamin D, as this vitamin has a significant effect on the amount of calcium the body can absorb and use.
- Contributes to normal bone structure and teeth
- Added vitamin D for optimal absorption
- Important for protein metabolism
- For normal muscle function
Calcium is the mineral which the body has the most of and 99% of it is found in bones and teeth. Magnesium is found in our cells and is a co-factor in over 300 enzymes. Together, calcium and magnesium interact to fill multiple functions in the body. For example, calcium has a contracting effect on muscle cells while magnesium has a relaxing effect. Worth noting is that magnesium is used up more quickly in case of stress and poor eating habits.
The capsules from Healthwell contain two variants of the minerals calcium and magnesium, with good absorption capacity in the body. The need for calcium is slightly greater than the need for magnesium and the balance between the two minerals is important. Healthwell Calcium/Magnesium therefore contains a third more calcium than magnesium. In order to optimise absorption, vitamin D has been added as well, as this vitamin has a significant effect on how much calcium the body can absorb. Together, the two minerals form one of the market's most affordable and qualitative supplements.
