Cal-Mag Caps Cal-Mag Caps

Now Foods Cal-Mag is a complex combining perfect proportions of calcium and magnesium, enriched with vitamin D, zinc, copper, manganese and a concentrate of unique microelements. The minerals contained in the product are in different forms (citrate, malate, chelate), which grants their highest bioavailability and assimilability.

Developed with utmost care, the formula contains the perfect dosage of nutrients crucial for the skeletal and muscular systems. The choice is completely deliberate; they work in synergy, which translates into the supplement’s highest efficiency in the organism.

Calcium (Ca) is one of the most important minerals found in the organism. It is the main building component, and it plays the role of a cofactor in more than 300 biochemical reactions that occur in the organism. Most calcium, nearly 99 per cent, is found in bones, while a little more than one per cent is stored by soft tissues and body fluids.

Calcium is a synonym of healthy, strong bones. It is a component of bone structure, determines its normal density and prevents the process of demineralisation. It stimulates the secretion of calcitonin, a parathyroid hormone that regulates calcium uptake from the blood and its supplementation in bone tissue.

Long-lasting calcium deficiencies in the diet lead to rickets in children and the softening of bones in adults; as a result, bones become fragile and vulnerable to fractures. An appropriate calcium supply also helps to inhibit bone loss, a natural process connected with the aging of the organism. High calcium levels in the organism are important in preventing osteoporosis.

Calcium is necessary for the normal functioning of the muscular system. It has a particularly strong impact on the process of muscle fibre contractions, mainly through its participation in ATP hydrolysis into the form used by the organism as energy. The participation of calcium is necessary in the process of releasing neurotransmitters and it determines normal transmission of nerve impulses. Calcium deficiencies lead to the so-called tetany, whose symptoms are involuntary muscle trembling and cramps.

Magnesium (Mg) is often called the “element of life” because of its prevalence and the large number of processes it is engaged in. Its most important role in the organism is the participation in energy production. Magnesium also performs the function of a coenzyme for many enzymes, especially those needed for the transport of phosphate groups. It is also crucial for the health of bones and muscles.

Magnesium stabilises the development of the skeletal system and regulates the calcium balance in the body. Bone tissue stores as much as 60 per cent of magnesium found in the organism – the element is a building component of the bone matrix and the entire skeletal system. Magnesium determines normal calcium levels in bones and prevents its deposits in soft tissues. Moreover, it stimulates the activity of vitamin D, responsible for calcium absorption in the system.

The effect of magnesium on the muscular system is concentrated mainly on the process of muscle relaxation (as opposed to calcium which is responsible for the contractions of muscle fibres). The typical symptoms of a magnesium deficiency are muscle disorders: calf cramps or involuntary eyelid twitches. Supplementing the deficiency allows to get rid of those unpleasant symptoms.

Vitamin D takes part in numerous processes happening in the organism, not only those connected with the health of bones. It affects the functioning of the immune system, participates in the process of cell division and is responsible for the normal functioning of muscles.

Vitamin D determines bone tissue mineralisation and is necessary for the regulation of the management of calcium and phosphorus. It affects the groups of non-collagen proteins, engaged in calcium metabolism (osteocalcin – the main protein of bones, and calbindin – responsible for binding calcium). An appropriately high vitamin D level in the organism ensures that calcium is properly used and prevents its deposits in soft tissues and arteries.

Copper (Cu) occurs in the organism in trace amounts but it is necessary for its normal functioning and participates in the most important enzymatic reactions that take place in the human body.

Copper participates in the process of collagen synthesis, the main building component of the skin, bones and connective tissue. It affects the stability and flexibility of connective tissue by activating enzymatic processes whose result is the cross-linking of elastin and collagen. Research shows that osteoporosis, arthritis and the weakening of blood vessels are directly linked with impaired cross-links.

Zinc (Zn) regulates a number of functions in the organism, starting with cell growth, through immune system processes, to maintaining normal cognitive functions. Moreover, it activates a large number of enzymes. Zinc’s engagement in the processes happening in the organism is so great that its deficiency leads to disorders in the nervous, muscular, endocrine, immune systems, as well as the digestive and reproductive systems.

Zinc is necessary for maintaining the normal bone structure and bone formation processes. It affects cell proliferation and differentiation and the synthesis of proteins in osteoblasts, it stimulates the synthesis of collagen and the enzyme ALP (alkaline phosphatase), engaged in the development of the bone matrix.

Manganese (Mn) is another trace element that participates in many processes in the organism. It is necessary for the normal absorption of many vitamins and nutrients, it takes part in digestive processes and affects the maintenance of normal blood glucose levels. 

Manganese performs the function of a cofactor in the formation of cartilage, bone tissue and collagen, and participates in bone mineralisation. Tests conducted on people suffering from osteoporosis showed that they had too low manganese levels, while with supplementation, their organisms were able to absorb dosages several times higher than normal.  

In order to strengthen the product’s effects, it also contains a concentrate of microelements. It consists of compounds that occur in the organism in trace or even negligible amounts, which results in that they are often omitted in supplementation. It is a big mistake, as the deficiency of trace elements can seriously disturb the functioning of the organism and increase the risk of developing various diseases. 

Cal-Mag is a high-quality product that allows the efficient supplementation of key minerals needed for the functioning of the organism. The supplement is intended to strengthen the skeletal system and joints, protect bones from demineralisation, regulate calcium management; it is also a fantastic aid in preventing osteoporosis.

Vitamin D

Information

Vitamin D belongs to fat soluble vitamins, occurs in three forms: calciferol (vitamin D1) ergocalciferol (vitamin D2) and cholecalciferol (vitamin D3), it is formed under the action of sunlight for at least 15 minutes per day. In the absence of sunlight it should be administered in the diet in the form of fish oil (Vitamin A + D3) and fish oils. It is responsible for the absorption of calcium and phosphorus. It is the building substance of bone tissue particularly necessary during pregnancy, childhood, and for athletes. It is a component of dietary supplements and nutrients among competetive athletes. Deficiency of vitamin D causes children growth inhibition, and rickets.
For adults - deficiency causes osteomalacia.
Excess
of vitamin D causes headaches, alopecia, nausea, drowsiness, blurred vision, pain in the long bones, the deposition of calcium deposits.
Dosage: 400 IU units during the day.


 

Cholecalciferol

Information

Cholecalciferol, or vitamin D3, is an organic chemical that belongs to the family of D vitamins. It is naturally found in fatty fish, fish oil, egg yolks, milk and dairy products. It is also synthesized in the human body. It is formed from 7-dehydrocholesterol present in the keratinocytes of the spinous and the basal layers of the epidermis, and a pre-requisite for initiating this process is the action of 290-315 nm wavelength UVB radiation on the skin.

Cholecalciferol is a biologically inactive compound. In the body, it undergoes enzymatic hydroxylation – first in the liver, with the participation of 25-hydroxylase, when calcidiol is formed and secondly in the kidneys, where under the influence of 1-α-hydroxylase, calcidiol is converted into the final active form – calcitriol.

The most important role of vitamin D3 in the body is the regulation of calcium-phosphate metabolism, which directly affects normal skeletal mineralization. In addition, it is involved in cell proliferation and differentiation, insulin secretion, as well as in some functions of the nervous, endocrine and immune systems.

Cholecalciferol is the most popular form of vitamin D used in dietary supplements. Studies show that supplementation with vitamin D in this form most effectively and rapidly raises the level of 25 (OH) D3 – a metabolite that is a marker of the level of vitamin D in the body.

Dosage: according to RDI standards for individual age groups.

Calcium

Information

Calcium (element chem. symbol Ca, atomic no. 20, the group of alkaline earth metals) is the basic building substance of bones and teeth, in which stored is 99% of the element, in the form of hydroxylapatite. When building bones and teeth, phosphorus is very important in the right proportion. It is a base-forming element and activator of many enzymes (ATPase) necessary to release the energy of ATP. It has a significant effect on blood clotting and regulates blood pressure and neuromuscular conductivity. Thanks to the reduced permeability of cell membranes, it soothes the symptoms of food allergies. Calcium is actively involved in the metabolism of iron interacts with vitamins A, C and D and phosphorus, magnesium. Natural source of calcium are animal products (dairy products, sardines, salmon, sprats eaten with bones) and plant products (nuts, soybeans, sunflower seeds). Absorption takes place in the small intestine (less in the colon), it has an effect on the level of lactose, insoluble fibre, organic acids, alkalinity (low pH). The best absorption have organic compounds (lactates, amino acid chelates etc.). Obstructing the absorption of calcium is caused by: phytic acid and oxalic acid as well as excess fat. Scientific studies have confirmed that the combination of calcium, magnesium, boron and vitamin D in dose 3 mg / 24h effectively prevent osteoporosis. Supplements on the market are both mono-preparation supplements (enriched with vitamin D3) and multi-component supplements, available at www.muscle-zone.pl.
Calcium deficiency disorders manifested in the construction of the bones (osteoporosis) and iron metabolism. The symptoms are: rickets, cramps and muscle tremor, osteoporosis.
Excess result
ing from an overdose of calcium supplements containing vitamin D3 for children and adults overdose of calcium (hypercalcemia). Symptoms of hypercalcemia are: lack of appetite, vomiting and constipation.
The dosage administered in various publications
are inconsistent: 800 - 1000 mg / 24 h (100 - 500 mg / 24h)

Magnesium

Information

Magnesium (element from the group of alkaline earth metals, atomic no. 12, a chemical symbol - Mg), one of the most important health microelements, participates in the synthesis process of the disintegration of high energy compounds and processes of transformation of hydrocarbons and fats. It affects the dilation of blood vessels and lower blood pressure, prevents hypercoagulable state. Shortages affect cardiac arrhythmias, malignant muscle cramps, insomnia and anxiety. It is a component of many dietary supplements and found in foods such as whole grain bread, legumes, buckwheat, rice, fish, meat, as well as chocolate, cocoa and nuts.
Dosage of 100 - 500 mg / day

Zinc

Information


Zinc (chemical element from transition group 12) belongs to the trace elements, it helps maintain acid-base balance of the body, protein, energy, lipid and carbohydrate metabolism. It provides bone metabolism and transport of oxygen. It protects the body against free radicals. Necessary for the proper operation of the senses of taste and smell. Positive impact on the process of insulin metabolism in the pancreas. It supports visual adaptation to the dark, has a significant influence on brain function. It is helpful in the treatment of infertility and mental illness.
Zinc deficiency leads to decreased immunity, and growth retardation. Zinc deficiency can occur in case of excessive consumption of simple sugars. In the case of hormonal therapy of women with irregular menstruation, the therapy should be associated with increased consumption of zinc. It can be found in food like: beans, eggs, carrots, beef and pork meat, milk, nuts, citrus fruits, seafood, rice, cottage cheese, lettuce.
Dosage: Daily 12-15 mg zinc. Exceeding the daily dose of 20 mg cause symptoms of poisoning of the body.

 

Methionine

Information

Exogenous methionine is an amino acid containing sulphur in its composition. It provides multi metabolism, with the indispensable help of vitamin B6. Participates in the synthesis of phospholipids (e.g. Lecithin), carnitine responsible for transport in the body of long-chain fatty acids, burned in the mitochondria cells (organelles in cells with a separate kernel), along with cystine forms cysteine. It is in the body antioxidant function. Natural source of acquisition of methionine are high-protein foods of animal origin (eggs, meat, fish), vegetable (sesame seeds, grain products). Available in all protein and carbohydrate protein and amino acid supplements such EAA and contain so-called all-day amino acids, supporting the liver preparations and cosmetics supporting the growth and condition of hair, skin and nails.


 

Copper

Information

Copper - trace mineral that facilitates the introduction of iron into hemoglobin, allowing the correct functioning of antioxidant processes. It is an important component of enzymes that affect the processes of aerobic metabolism, carbohydrate metabolism and in the formation of collagen. With proper diet, do not use supplements containing copper, as an overdose can cause insomnia, hair loss. It occurs in foods such as legumes, offal, plums, seafood. Copper compounds must be used in a responsible way, because many of them have toxic properties.
Dosing: A sufficient amount of copper provides proper diet.


 

Manganese

Information

Manganese, of which a natural source is chocolate, grain products with whole grain, nuts, legumes and dried cranberry, is a component of enzymes and their activator. It stimulates the properties and functionality of connective tissue and provides proper functioning of the brain. It affects the function of the pancreas, ensuring proper insulin metabolism and condition of the bone and joints. Magnesium deficiency contributes to serious disorders in synthesis of hyaluronic acid and chondroitin, reduction in insulin sensitivity of tissues, affects bone resorption. Manganese chelates are used in complexometry in chemical analysis and in medicine for the treatment of severe poisoning (antitoxin) by heavy metals, in sports supplementation, manganese impact on the functioning of the locomotor system is used. It is a component of the so-called regenerators of joints and a vitamin-mineralizing and mineralizing supplements.
