Our bones are always busy tearing down and building up tissues to create strong, flexible bones. Calcium and magnesium are an important part of that ongoing construction project, but they have other vital functions as well. 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. So insufficient minerals in the blood can lead to depletion in the bones since it is more important to keep the heart beating and run other vital physiological processes. Lack of minerals in the bones may lead to osteomalacia (soft bones) and ultimately to osteoporosis including bone loss in the jaw, which contributes to periodontal disease.
Although calcium and magnesium are important for bones and teeth, zinc is also an important component of strong bones. Zinc, an antioxidant mineral, is necessary for the activity of bone-building osteoblast cells which stimulate the formation of bones and the healing of fractures. It is also required for synthesis of collagen, which forms 90% of the protein in bone matrix.
Evergreen’s Cal-Mag-Zinc includes Vitamin D3 to help deposit minerals into the bone matrix and to enhance muscle function. The use of the high-yielding carbonate form of calcium gives 1,000 mg of calcium and 500 mg of magnesium in just two vegetarian tablets. Hydrochloric acid (betaine HCl and glutamic acid HCl) have been added to enhance absorption of the minerals.
