Calcium & Magnesium
Calcium and magnesium are two of the most essential minerals required in the body. They are needed for the maintainence of healthy bones, nerve function, hormonal health, muscle contraction and the body's acid-alkaline balance. Magnesium also assists with the production of energy, helping to relieve fatigue. Calcium, like many minerals, is often not absorbed well and so many people take a supplement to ensure sufficient intake.
Magnesium supplements are generally well absorbed, particularly chelated forms such as magnesium citrate. Calcium and magnesium are intrinsically linked, too much of one will adversely affect the other, and so they are often recommended together. Taking both calcium and magnesium helps you maximise the benefit of these two important minerals.
