Calcium Supplement Facts

  1. 1. CALCIUM It’s Absorption Into the Body Is a Complex Process Requiring Very Specific Conditions
  2. 2. CALCIUM FACTS There are a few basics which need to be known about calcium before attempting to supplement it
  3. 3. Calcium is not easy to absorb and the process is slightly complex.
  4. 4. Calcium has large molecules which themselves present difficulty in absorption.
  5. 5. Calcium further requires magnesium in tandem to be used at all.
  6. 6. And, calcium requires a specific, precise pH balance for its absorption and use.
  7. 7. Clearly it is not a simple process and, therefore, calcium may not necessarily be absorbed when consumed.
  8. 8. DIGESTION & ABSORPTION Conditions which are the difference between calcium that is usable and not usable by the body
  9. 9. Calcium dissolves in acid.
  10. 10. Calcium and magnesium are alkaline (opposite of acid) and require an acid for proper absorption.
  11. 11. Though the stomach uses acid to digest, modern diets, high in refined starches and sugars, deplete this acid, hampering calcium digestion, conversion and use by the body.
  12. 12. To the body, minerals that cannot be absorbed are just rocks.
  13. 13. Minerals in ideal form should be as easy to absorb as a glass of water.
  14. 14. Supplements which are already in a digestible, absorbable form are therefore ideal in modern diets.
  15. 15. Instant CalMag-C is a formula which allows calcium and magnesium to be instantly absorbed and used by the body, therefore bypassing problems of not enough digestive acid.
  16. 16. Using vitamin C as an acid and a precise ratio of calcium to magnesium, it is pH balanced and in digestible form which the body can use instantly.
