Description: Calcigard 2:1 w/Vit D 90t is available by Douglas Laboratories.
Calcigard® Two-To-One is a specially
acidified, rapidly dissolving formula designed to improve absorption
and bioavailability of calcium and magnesium. Tablets may be swallowed
or dissolved in water or other suitable liquid.
amni® original formula
Plus Vitamin D
A Dietary Supplement
Two-to-One provides calcium and magnesium in a 2:1 ratio from the same
sources. Both formulas, manufactured by Douglas Laboratories®, are
available with and without added Vitamin D.
Calcigard Two-to-One may be useful
dietary supplements for those at risk for osteoporosis, or anyone who
wishes to increase their intake of calcium and magnesium for
maintaining good bone health.
The adult human body contains
approximately 1,200 g of calcium, of which about 99% is present in the
skeleton, and 20-30 g of magnesium with about 60% located in bone. The
remaining 1% of total body calcium and 40% of total body magnesium are
found in the soft tissues and play important roles in such vital
functions as nerve conduction, muscle contraction, energy metabolism,
blood clotting, membrane permeability, and hormonal signaling.
calcium levels are carefully maintained within very narrow limits by
the interplay of several hormones (1,25-dihydroxy-cholecalciferol,
parathyroid hormone, calcitonin, estrogen, and testosterone) which
control calcium absorption and excretion, as well as bone metabolism.
The intracellular levels of magnesium are also very tightly regulated,
since their alterations can have profound effects on cardiac and
skeletal muscle physiology. Intestinal calcium absorption ranges from
15 to 75% of ingested calcium.
AdequateVvitamin D status is
necessary for normal calcium absorption. Magnesium absorption is
independent of Vitamin D status and ranges from 30 to 60% of ingested
magnesium. Bone is constantly turning over, through 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.
Osteoporosis afflicts a large proportion of the elderly in developed
Caucasian and Asian women typically have low peak
bone densities, and are therefore 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 and
Calcigard Two-to-One provides highly beneficial
sources of both calcium and magnesium. They are well absorbed and well
tolerated. Vitamin D is a key regulatory hormone for calcium and bone
metabolism. Adequate Vitamin D intake is important for ensuring normal
calcium absorption and maintaining proper calcium plasma levels. People
living in southern regions of the U.S. can derive significant amounts
of Vitamin D from sunlight dependent synthesis in the skin during the
summer, whereas people in the northern states have to rely more on
foods and supplements for adequate Vitamin D status. This is why
Calcigard formulas are available both with and without Vitamin D.
