Calcium Magnesium with Vitamin D maintains strong bones and teeth and helps prevent osteoporosis to reduce the risk of fractures later in life. This product may help reduce high blood pressure and plays a role in relieving symptoms of PMS. It also helps prevent insomnia, supports colon health and is good for adolescents and post-menopausal women.
Calcium Magnesium with Vitamin D aids nerve and muscle function, including the conduction of nerve impulses and the regulation of a normal heart rhythm.
Together, magnesium and calcium support mutual absorption and utilization. The optimal two-to-one ratio of calcium to magnesium ensures maximum calcium absorption and it prevents adverse gastrointestinal effects that can occur when the two minerals are combined.
Calcium Magnesium with Vitamin D is formulated with premium-grade, bioavailable Vitamin D3, the natural form synthesized by the body when skin is exposed to sunlight.

Drug Interactions: Calcium, vitamin D, and/or magnesium can interfere with tetracycline antibiotics, anticoagulants, and calcium channel blockers. Consult your physician before use if you are taking any thiazide diuretics, as these can cause extremely high (potentially toxic) levels of calcium in the body. Magnesium can increase levels of diuretics in the body.
Nutrient Depletions: Excess calcium can impair the absorption of the mineral iron. Calcium, vitamin D, and/or magnesium may interact with or be depleted by corticosteroids, bronchodilators, antiosteoporotics, cholesterol-reducing medications, anti-gout medications, anti-fungals, immunosuppressants, antimalarial drugs, anti-tuberculosis drugs, histamine H2 blockers, oral contraceptives, biguanides, sulfonylureas, and sulfonamides. Foods high in phosphorus (animal protein and soft drinks) promote urinary loss of calcium. High consumption of caffeine, and excess dietary fat and fibre can inhibit calcium absorption.
Supportive Interactions: Vitamin D enhances calcium absorption. Garlic supplements along with calcium may help reduce high blood pressure.
Warnings and Precautions: Some people may experience diarrhea.
Toxicity, Adverse Warnings and Side Effects: Calcium carbonate may cause symptoms of gas, bloating, or constipation. If this occurs, switch to calcium citrate. Do not exceed recommended dosage. Excess calcium can contribute to the development of kidneys stones, and may cause calcium deposits in the body.
