An easy-to-consume and tissue-ready combination of calcium and magnesium, plus vitamin C.
Cal-Mag Citrate helps maintain bone and muscle health.* The addition of vitamin C enhances immune function.*
Magnesium and calcium work synergistically in the body’s muscle cells – magnesium causes muscle fibers to relax, while calcium causes them to contract – helping to prevent muscle cramping and supporting healthy heart rate and rhythm (the heart is a muscle too!).*
The ratio of calcium-to-magnesium in Cal-Mag Citrate is ideal for individuals who want a higher amount of calcium but, due to magnesium's potential laxative effect, can’t tolerate an equal amount of magnesium.* Because of the highly absorbable forms of these two minerals, you get higher amounts of essential minerals and minimize capsule fatigue.
Why is calcium important?
- Studies on calcium and bone mass show that daily supplementation of a well-absorbed form of calcium promotes bone mass in adolescents, young adults, older men, and postmenopausal women.*
Why is magnesium important?
- Magnesium is crucial for the body to function properly because magnesium is involved in more than 600 of the body's enzymatic reactions.
- Magnesium is essential for the health of the heart and blood vessels, brain, bones, muscles, and lungs. It also supports healthy blood sugar levels.*
- It enhances the relaxation of smooth and skeletal muscles.*
- Magnesium is a cofactor, along with multiple enzymes, in cellular energy production.*
Why add vitamin C?
- Vitamin C promotes optimal immune function.*
- Vitamin C supports healthy collagen formation, which benefits wound healing and injury repair.*
Help for my bones!
I've recently started taking this because I totally cannot afford what the doctor prescribed for my bone health. I read a lot about it and gave it a try. I won't know exactly how effective it is until my next bone density scan, but it is so much easier to take than a bunch of huge calcium and magnesium supplements. Just a tiny scoop in water, once a day, and that's it. It has a pleasant, effervescent taste. So far, it's a winner!
Great before the gym
I take this in the morning and after I go to the gym and feel great after using it. My joints feel great.
Best way to get magnesium and calcium into my kids
My picky teen loves to put this stuff into his drink concoctions. It's hard to get him to take anything so this form and flavor is a really good one for our daily regimen.
Cal-Mag Citrate plus hemp oil worked
A bed-bound patient who only received tube feedings suddenly began having painful cramping due to contractures resulting from almost three years of being in bed, even with daily PROM, bid Baclofen, and Tylenol. The addition of Cal-Mag Citrate and the hemp oil made him feel better in less than 48 hours.
Finally, the perfect calcium-to-magnesium ratio. Thorne makes products that make me feel good and that I can feel good about. The fizz of this gets me excited to take these two essential minerals! Thanks, Thorne!
Not to bad in water. I use when I want to recover
No more leg cramps
Good taste. I also like that it’s lightly carbonated.
