It can be hard to know what supplements to take. What does your body truly need? What offers the most benefits? What should be taken together?
The world of supplements isn’t always clear-cut. But we believe that knowledge is powerful when it comes to taking care of your body!
That’s why we decided to dive deep into a very common mineral people choose to supplement—calcium. With the rise of plant-based diets, more people than ever are taking calcium supplements.
And, while calcium supplements can be a very important way to bridge the gap between your diet and your body’s needs, the truth is that calcium alone isn’t enough.
Read on to find out why taking calcium with magnesium is important, and what you can do to support your body!
Calcium: Your Body’s Bone Foundation
First, let’s get clear on calcium itself. Calcium is an essential mineral for your body. Not only does it promote bone strength and density, but it also fosters heart health and supports your nerves and muscles.
But many adults don’t get enough calcium in their diets, especially as they get older. Diet, digestive issues, and even certain medications can prevent you from getting enough calcium.
While many people can benefit from a calcium supplement, those with low-dairy or high-protein diets, along with those who consume a lot of sodium, are more likely to need one. Post-menopausal women are also at particular risk for not getting enough calcium.
To top things off, calcium isn’t always easy to come by. The highest sources of calcium include dairy products, leafy green vegetables, and fish. But unless you consume high amounts of those, you could be lacking in calcium.
That’s where calcium supplements come in—they can help ensure that you get the recommended calcium dosage, even if you don’t get enough from your food.
Magnesium: The Hidden Calcium Assistant
Plenty of people are worried about getting enough calcium. They understand that bone density decreases as they age, and they want to make sure they are keeping their bones strong and healthy.
What most people don’t realize, however, is that calcium needs other minerals to reach its full potential—magnesium in particular.
Magnesium helps your body absorb calcium better. It does this in two different ways: first, by helping Vitamin D convert into an active form that promotes calcium absorption. Second, by stimulating the hormone calcitonin, which helps move calcium from the blood into bones.
That’s why it’s important to make sure that your calcium supplement also provides magnesium, making your body and bones stronger!
(Note, you should always consult with your doctor before you start any supplement regimen—calcium and magnesium might not be right for you!)
CalX: The Best of Both Worlds
Once we understood the relationship between calcium and magnesium, we knew we had to provide a supplement that offered the best of both worlds.
We created CalX, our Isotonic Calcium Magnesium with D3, to promote the most efficient absorption of all the vitamins and minerals.
CalX contains 75% of your daily calcium needs and 63% of your daily magnesium needs. It also contains Vitamin D3, which facilitates calcium absorption, ensuring synergistic work toward strengthening your bones.
In addition to that powerful trifecta of minerals and vitamins, CalX contains manganese, which helps your body metabolize fats and also contributes to calcium absorption.
It also provides plenty of the B-vitamin family (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, and B12), which help your body’s enzymes function properly.
How to Take CalX
Calcium is most efficient when consumed multiple times throughout the day, which is why we recommend taking CalX first thing in the morning and again in the evening on an empty stomach.
That increases the absorption and helps make sure you’re providing consistent calcium to your body! It’s also isotonic, meaning your body gets more of the minerals and vitamins. CalX is one of the most efficient ways to supplement your calcium levels.
To take CalX, just mix 1 level scoop (3/4 tsp) with 2 ounces (60ml) of cold water twice daily.
What Our OptiHealth Family is Saying
“I suffered for years with weak bones in my lower legs and feet. My bone density was really poor. Since I’ve been using CALX I’ve had no issues with my bone health. Doctor tells me my bone density is well. I’ve been using it for years and no more podiatrist visits.” -Michael
“I was using an isotonic calcium solution from someone else until my sister told me to look at YOUR product. When I compared them, YOUR product had double the calcium! I was taking two dosages of the other product per day because I am deemed to have osteopenia. By taking your product, I only have to take ONE dosage to get the same amount of calcium so it lasts longer and costs less.” -Linda
“It is isotonic—works great and I feel better using it—especially my knees feel better after using this fantastic product. I was an Airborne soldier and landed hard many times. This helps me buy, and become a satisfied user I did!!” -Carlton
