Everyone knows calcium is critical for strong bones and teeth, but did you know that magnesium play an important role as well?* Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium, but before it can do that, it must be converted to its active form. Magnesium is one compound that helps convert vitamin D to its active form. A balanced ratio of magnesium to calcium also is key to proper calcium uptake and metabolism. Magnesium helps regulate the amount of calcium in our blood and directs any excess calcium to our bones for storage. Consuming excess calcium without sufficient magnesium can cause calcium to deposit and accumulate in our joints, kidneys, and arteries instead of our bones. Magnesium also enables smooth muscle relaxation and helps reduce occasional aches and pains associated with strenuous exercise.* Currently, approximately 60% of Americans' diets are deficient in magnesium, so we've included 250 mg of highly absorbable magnesium citrate to our Adult and Kids Mineral Complete.
