Calm Plus Calcium

Natural Vitality’s Natural Calm Plus Calcium is a perfectly balanced calcium and magnesium supplement.  Magnesium and calcium are two nutrients that need to be balanced within the body in order for you to be fully healthy.  They act to oppose each other, for instance, calcium makes muscles contract, while magnesium makes muscles relax.  Calcium excites nerves, while magnesium calms them down.  If calcium is the “on” switch, magnesium is the “off.”

Calcium deficiency can be a serious issue.  In the U.S., we generally consume about 10 times more calcium than magnesium, and very few calcium supplements contain magnesium let alone, balanced calcium and magnesium.  This can lead to magnesium depletion in the body and an excess of calcium the body is unable to use.  This formula was initially intended for hard-working athletes to stop the process above from happening.  Calm Plus Calcium is also an excellent for those looking to start supplementing calcium, so there is never concern that you are causing one imbalance as you fix another.  Calm Plus Calcium comes in 4 flavors: original, orange, lemon, and raspberry-lemon.

OsteoCalm

Osteo Calm is a liquid calcium magnesium supplement is designed to combat the effects of osteoporosis and other calcium magnesium deficiencies. It is made with GloCal® calcium supplement and Natural Calm® magnesium supplement, plus vitamins: Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin D3, Vitamin K2, Vitamin B6 and Folic acid and other minerals in ionic form: zinc, copper, manganese, potassium, boron, as well as certified organic stevia, certified organic agave.

No matter how good the vitamins or mineral supplements are that you start with, they are only as good as they are bioavailable. Supplements must be absorbed and assimilated into the body and be available at the proper area in order to be of use. All pills and capsules have to dissolve into liquid form before they can be absorbed and assimilated. Some people with weaker digestive systems (and digestive ability often weakens with age) don’t fully break these down and the result is only partial or no absorption, so the pill or capsule doesn’t do much, if any, good.
