Calcium Magnesium with Zinc 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 play a role in relieving PMS symptoms. It also helps prevent insomnia, supports colon and is good for adolescents and post-menopausal women. The addition of zinc gluconate enhances the immune system, fights infections and supports prostate health.
Together, magnesium and calcium support mutual absorption and utilization. The optimal two-to-one ratio of calcium to magnesium ensures maximum absorption and prevents adverse gastrointestinal effects.

Drug Interactions: Calcium and magnesium can interfere with tetracycline antibiotics and calcium channel blockers. Thiazide diuretics 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 and zinc can impair the absorption of the mineral iron. Do not take this supplement at the same time as iron. Calcium and/or magnesium and/or zinc may interact with or be depleted by ACE inhibitors, anti-osteoporotics, anti-arthritics, anti-gout medications, anti-fungals, anti-malarial drugs, anti-tuberculosis drugs, anti-convulsants, anti-hypertensives, anti-pyretics, biguanides, bronchodilators, cholesterol reducing medications, corticosteroids, immunosuppressants, oral contraceptives, salicylates, 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. Ensure that you are getting at least 400 IU of vitamin D each day for optimal calcium absorption. Garlic supplements along with calcium may help reduce high blood pressure.
Warnings and Precautions: Some people may experience diarrhea. Zinc supplementation can cause a copper deficiency.
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. Excess zinc can impair the immune system, increasing susceptibility to infection, and inhibit copper absorption, which could lead to anemia. If you experience abdominal pain, appetite loss, diarrhea, irregular heartbeat, mood or mental changes, nausea, tiredness, weakness, discomfort urinating, or vomiting, discontinue use and contact a physician.
