Calcium has long been sold as the cure-all for weak bones. Yet, cultures that consume the most calcium also have the highest rates of osteoporosis. While some blame this on genetics, studies show otherwise. In the famous Harvard Nurses’ Study, it is illustrated that the more dairy we consume, the weaker our bones become.
For strong bones, we need a healthy balance between calcium and magnesium. Research suggests that slightly more magnesium than calcium may be ideal. Without enough magnesium to balance calcium, much of the calcium we consume ends up in soft tissues. This can contribute to the calcification of brain, heart, and arterial cells, as well as promote kidney stones, cramps, and constipation.
Magnesium is the world’s most overlooked nutrient. It is important for more than 300 chemical reactions and processes that keep the body functioning properly. These include supporting good heart health, helping to maintain cholesterol already within the normal range, healthy immune system, bone growth and maintenance, hearing, energy and endurance, nerves, digestion, skin, muscles… well, you get the picture. Your body relies on it to function.
Calcium and magnesium supplements are available in many forms. While each has its strong points, the best form is ionic because it can be absorbed through both passive diffusion and active protein transport.*
At Pure Essence, we have been working with free mineral ions for many years. Because of this, we are in a unique position to provide the world’s best mineral supplements. Our ionic minerals are pre-digested when they reach your stomach so they are better absorbed.*
