Our bones are continually being made, unmade and remade in a process that uses up to 50 different minerals. Although 99% of our calcium is in the bones and teeth, insufficient calcium in the blood can cause it to be drawn from the bones in order to keep the heart beating and run other vital physiological processes. If there is not enough calcium to fulfill essential functions it may lead to osteomalacia (soft bones) and ultimately to osteoporosis including bone loss in the jaw, which contributes to periodontal disease.
In addition to their important role in skeletal health, calcium and magnesium are electrolytes, ionized minerals that are necessary for healthy nerve function and transmission of nerve signals as well as muscle growth, contraction and relaxation necessary for heart function and blood pressure regulation. They also contribute to cellular energy in the form of ATP, which delivers energy to almost all energy-using cellular components.
Evergreen’s Cal-Mag Citrate Complex vegetarian tablets includes Vitamin D3 to help deposit minerals into the bone matrix and to enhance muscle function.
