Cal-Mag Caps

Multi-Nutrient Formula for Strong, Healthy Bones

Strong Bones Need More than Calcium!

Cal-Mag AminoCalcium supplements help prevent and reverse osteoporosis. In fact, the protective effect of calcium on bone is one of the few "label claims" allowed by the FDA.
However, most studies also show that isolated calcium supplements have only minor effects on bone. This means that if you are serious about protecting your bone mineral density, calcium alone may not be enough.

Cal-Mag Caps Helps Build Strong Bones Four Ways

Cal-Mag Caps is specially formulated to help build strong bones four ways, by combining nutrients that are essential to healthy bone formation:

Calcium (as amino acid chelate and carbonate). Calcium supplements help prevent osteoporosis. Calcium supplements have an especially important protective effect in post-menopausal women.

Magnesium (as amino acid chelate and oxide). Both bone and blood levels of magnesium have been shown to be low in people with osteoporosis. Magnesium supplements reduce bone loss in men, and supplementing with 250 to 750 mg per day of magnesium halted bone loss or increased bone density in 87% of people with osteoporosis in one two-year trial. Supplementing with magnesium (150 mg per day for one year) also increased bone mass in pre-adolescent and adolescent girls in a double-blind study.

Boron (citrate, aspartate, glycinate forms). Boron, a trace mineral, reduces urinary calcium and magnesium loss.

Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol). Vitamin D increases calcium absorption, and blood levels of vitamin D are directly related to bone strength. Even small vitamin D deficiencies, which are quite common, lead to accelerated bone density loss and increased risk of fracture. In double-blind studies, vitamin D supplementation reduced bone loss in women who consumed too little vitamin D from diet and slowed bone loss in people with osteoporosis.

Vitamin K-2 is vital for effective calcium absorption and healthy bone formation.

Dr. Myatt's Recommendation for Strong, Healthy Bones

Suggested Dose: For post-menopausal women taking Maxi Multi, take an additional 3 caps of Cal-Mag Caps daily. Pre-menopausal females and men usually get an optimal dose of bone nutrients from Maxi Multi alone.

Recommended calcium dose for post-menopausal women or for those with osteoporosis:1,500 mg calcium with corresponding magnesium, boron and vitamin D.

Dr. Myatt’s comment: Cal-Mag Caps is a very easy to assimilate form of calcium-magnesium plus vitamin D-3, K-2 and boron, all needed for healthy bone formation. I recommend a "balanced" bone formula over a single calcium supplement for keeping bones strong.

Each Serving (3 Capsules) of Cal-Mag Caps provides:

  • Calcium (amino acid chelate, carbonate) 500 mg
  • Magnesium (citrate, oxide) 200 mg
  • Vitamin D (cholecalciferol) 25 IU
  • Boron (as amino acid complex) 500 mcg
  • Vitamin D-3 (cholecalciferol) 200 IU
  • Vitamin K2 (as menaquinone-7) 2.5 mcg

NEW Formulation! Cal-MagCaps with Vitamins D-3, K2 and Boron.

Suggested Use: Adults take 3 capsules daily with a meal or as directed by a health care provider.
