Calcium provides strong bone development during the younger years and the acquired bone density needed to get us through our later years. Osteoporosis causes bones to become brittle and fragile and affects one out of four women and one out of eight men over 50 years of age in Canada. Although calcium is the central mineral in bone mineralization, magnesium supports healthy bones. Calcium Magnesium with Zinc Easy Absorption, Krebs Cycle, is recommended for those with low stomach acid, such as the elderly. This form of calcium is attached to available Krebs Cycle minerals for increased absorption and utilization. Zinc stimulates bone formation and inhibits bone loss in animal studies and therefore may prove useful in preventing or treating osteoporosis.
Current recommendations are that people ages 19-50 consume 1,000 mg of calcium per day, and those 50 or over get 1,200 mg per day. Magnesium is also important for muscle and nerve health and is needed to encourage the correct utilization of calcium by the body to increase bone strength.
