Most people don't consume adequate amounts of dietary calcium.1 The Daily Recommended Intake (DRI) of calcium for adults aged 19 - 50 is 1,000 mg. For adults over age 50, the recommendation is 1,200 mg daily. Vitamin D is needed for calcium absorption, so 400 IU of vitamin D should be consumed daily as well. Calcium is found in dairy products, green leafy vegetables such as broccoli and kale and fortified fruit juice.
Three tablets of Kurzweil & Grossman's Cal-Mag contain 1000 mg of calcium as well as 200 IU of vitamin D.
Magnesium helps to relax smooth muscle, and in so doing can improve blood flow to the heart.4 It assists in maintaining blood pressure in a normal range, and it is needed for formation of bone, protein and fatty acids.5,6,7 It activates B vitamins and is utilized in the formation of ATP. Magnesium and Calcium appear to work together to support healthy cardiac function.6
Magnesium is also helpful in treating fatigue, stress and/or frustration, occasional anxiety, and PMS.6 It is found naturally in nuts, grains, beans, dark green vegetables, fish and meat.
The DRI for adult women is 320 mg and 420 mg for men, but we recommend 400 - 600 mg per day for most adults. Magnesium can interact with a number of medications including diuretics, some antibiotics and chemotherapeutic agents. Large doses of magnesium may cause diarrhea, and caution is needed in cases of kidney dysfunction.
