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 that have many functions in the body. Magnesium is needed, among other things, 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 needed for the formation of bones and teeth, for the blood to be able to coagulate and the mineral also ensures that the nerves function normally. In Healthwell Calcium/Magnesium there is also added vitamin D because the vitamin is very important for how much calcium the body can absorb and use.
- Contributes to normal bone structure and normal teeth
- Two opposite minerals
- Added vitamin D for best absorption
- For normal muscle function
What is calcium?
Calcium belongs to the mineral that the body has the most of and about 99% of it is found in bones and teeth. The skeleton also acts as a calcium reserve to ensure that there is always calcium that the body can use for, among other things, the normal function of the muscles and nerves. Vitamin D helps regulate the uptake and turnover of calcium and ensures that the excess is stored in the skeleton. Calcium is found mainly in foods such as dairy products, mussels and kale.
Why is magnesium important?
Magnesium is found in our cells and is included in over 300 enzymes. Magnesium is also involved in creating the plants' chlorophyll. In our bodies, about 1 tablespoon of magnesium is stored in the skeleton where it interacts with calcium. Together, the minerals help with many functions in the body, for example, calcium has an astringent effect on muscle cells while magnesium has a relaxing effect. It is worth remembering that magnesium is consumed faster during, among other things, stress, poor diet or hard workouts. Even diuretics or drinking soft drinks and coffee make the body’s magnesium levels deplete faster. We find magnesium naturally in, among other things, whole grain products, meat, fish and shellfish.
High quality supplement
The capsules from Healthwell contain two variants of the minerals calcium and magnesium, which have a good absorption capacity in the body. The calcium requirement is slightly higher than the magnesium requirement, and the balance between the minerals is important. Healthwell Calcium/Magnesium therefore contains one third more calcium than magnesium. It also contains Vitamin D for optimal uptake, as the vitamin is crucial for how much calcium the body can absorb.
