Calcium-Magnesium, SynerPro® (150 tabs)
Calcium intake, when combined with sufficient Vitamin D, a healthy diet, and regular exercise, may reduce the risk of developing osteoporosis
Vitamin D helps in the absorption and use of calcium and phosphorus.
Magnesium helps in tissue formation and in the development of bones and teeth. Magnesium also helps the body to metabolize carbohydrates, fats and proteins and to maintain proper muscle function.
How It Works:
Nature's Sunshine SynerPro Calcium & Magnesium recognizes that each of its components depends on the other for proper assimilation in the body. Calcium is essential to the health of bones and teeth, and plays a role in many cellular functions. Magnesium is closely associated with calcium in bone metabolism and is a key electrolyte. This combination also includes vitamin D, phosphorus, zinc, and copper. Recent research shows that calcium operates according to a diurnal time cycle. During the day when the body is active, calcium in nerve cells is utilized for muscle contraction and nerve transmissions. When this calcium is depleted, muscle fatigue is experienced. During sleep when the body is inactive, calcium is extracted from bone tissues to replenish cellular stores, that is, unless calcium is being adequately supplied in the diet. Researchers have shown that taking calcium supplements at night helps to balance calcium levels in the blood, reducing the risk of calcium deficiency and osteoporosis.
