Description: Cal-6 + Mg 250t is available by Douglas Laboratories.
Six-Source Calcium Complex with Magnesium (In a Ca/Mg 2:1 ratio) and Synergists
A Dietary Supplement
Cal-6 + Mg.™,
provided by Douglas Laboratories, is a special chelate complex of 6
sources of calcium with magnesium and other ingredients to assist the
body in maintaining healthy bone structure. Calcium is a primary
mineral for building the strong structure of bones and teeth.
Cal-6 + Mg.™ may be a useful dietary
supplement for those who wish to increase their intake of calcium and
other nutritional factors for maintaining the function and structure of
The adult human body contains
approximately 1,200 g of calcium, about 99% of which is present in the
skeleton, and 20-30 g of magnesium with about 60% located in bone. Bone
is constantly turning over, a continuous process of formation and
resorption. In children and adolescents, the rate of formation of bone
mineral predominates over the rate of resorption. In later life,
resorption predominates over formation. Therefore, in normal aging,
there is a gradual loss of bone. Intestinal calcium absorption ranges
from 15 to 75% of ingested calcium.
Vitamin D is a key
regulatory hormone for calcium and bone metabolism. Adequate Vitamin D
status is essential for ensuring normal calcium absorption and
maintenance of healthy calcium plasma levels. Magnesium absorption is
independent of Vitamin D status and ranges from 30 to 60% of ingested
magnesium. Osteoporosis, a condition of reduced bone mineral density
that can increase risk of fractures, affects a large proportion of the
elderly in developed countries. Caucasian and Asian women typically
have low peak bone densities, and therefore, are at the greatest risk
of developing osteoporosis.
It is generally accepted that
obtaining enough dietary calcium throughout life can significantly
decrease the risk of developing osteoporosis. Among other factors, such
as regular exercise, gender and race, calcium supplementation during
childhood and adolescence appears to be a prerequisite for maintaining
adequate bone density later in life. But even elderly osteoporotic
patients can benefit significantly from supplementation with dietary
calcium. Cal-6 + Mg.™ provides a highly beneficial source of dietary
calcium together with other nutrients that assist in the maintenance of
healthy bone structure and function.
For example, boron
affects the composition, structure, and strength of bone. It appears to
be necessary for calcium and magnesium absorption, their adequate renal
reabsorption, and their incorporation into the bone matrix. Boron is
absorbed at about 90% efficiency and is rapidly distributed among the
