This scientifically balanced mineral complex puts chelated calcium and magnesium together with their ideal co-workers of bamboo silica, boron, Vitamins D & K in a green superfood base of raw kale. Each of these elements, which are vital to bone development and maintenance, teeth and gums, muscles, and cardiovascular health, is more easily absorbed with our unique chilsonation process and whole food base.
Using a superior ratio of 1:1 for the calcium and magnesium, our unique soft tablet manufacturing process creates a product with superior absorption, while the whole food kale base helps correct our alkalinity and facilitates absorption of the difficult to digest minerals.
A youthful, vibrant body, at any age, must have a strong structural foundation — meaning your skeleton. However, one in four women and one in eight men over the age of 50 have osteoporosis. In Canada, more women die each year as a result of osteoporotic fractures than from breast and ovarian cancer combined. Between 45 and 75 years of age, women lose 30 percent of their skeletal structure and men lose 15 percent.
Enerex Osteo Cal:Mag offers highly-absorbable chelated Calcium and Magnesium, along with co-worker nutrients Boron, Silicon and Vitamins D and K that are vital to bones. The superfood raw organic kale is added to combat acidity in the body — which is thought by some researchers to be the missing link to osteoporosis prevention.
Calcium can’t get into bones on its own. It needs co-partners (co-factors): Magnesium, Vitamin D, Vitamin K, and trace minerals — Magnesium must be supplemented with Calcium for a healthy balance in the body; Vitamin D3 helps Calcium to be absorbed; Boron helps to prevent loss of Calcium and Magnesium (excreted in the urine), and Silicon helps Calcium to be absorbed by the body. Enerex Osteo Cal:Mag provides the important co-factors nutrients.
How to get bones to take in Calcium
You need “organic” minerals – those that are or were living and provide life to the body’s cells as food – rather than “inorganic” to be absorbed into bones. By combining Calcium with an amino acid (in a process called “chelating”), Enerex’s Osteo Cal:Mag creates an organic chelate bond. As a result, studies show that 75% more Calcium is delivered to the bones than with inorganic (non-chelated) Calcium. For example, poorly absorbed inorganic Calcium carbonate provides very little Calcium. Magnesium is absorbed 87% when properly chelated, but only 16% when taken in an inorganic non-chelated form.
The body needs more Magnesium than what was once thought because many of us are deficient, and it’s difficult to absorb from food. Although the RDA for Magnesium it is 400-450 mg/day, many researchers recommend 1200 mg/day (with Calcium’s RDA at 1200 mg/day). Therefore, the ideal ratio that Osteo Cal:Mag offers is equal amounts of Calcium and Magnesium.
A new way to consider osteoporosis
Osteoporosis is not only caused by lack of Calcium and other minerals, but by excess acidity. Since most North Americans are too acidic due to eating too much protein and processed foods, stress and medications, the body pulls alkaline minerals from bones to balance its pH level. Over time, this weakens bones. Research shows that increasing vegetables in the diet decreases the risk of osteoporosis because they are alkalinizing. Enerex Osteo Cal:Mag includes super alkalizing raw organic kale to help offset acidity. This formula is good to the bone!
