Recent research has shown that our human ancestors from the Palaeolithic Age, ingested 1600- 2000 mg of calcium per day and their bones were 17% more dense than is found in people today. Dairy products and cultivated grains were unknown to our Palaeolithic ancestors and their naturally high assimilable calcium intake was obtained from raw plant sources not dairy sources as many today believe.
Today, nutrient poor soils and food processing have resulted in the depletion of vital minerals required for the maintenance of healthy tissue and bones. Antibiotics, oral contraceptives, NSAIDs, diuretics, etc. all deplete the body’s mineral stores. Impaired digestion, decreased kidney function, prolonged stress and chronic diarrhea also lead to decreased mineral levels.
Phyto Cal-Mag w/Boron provides pure elemental calcium and magnesium in a 5:1 ratio, mirroring the ratio found in healthy plants. The presence of vitamin D3 and a slightly acidic base of pH 5.2 in this formula ensures proper assimilation of calcium and magnesium.
Tissue and bone health are further supported with the addition of the trace mineral boron, which has been shown to act in the prevention of bone demineralisation (estrogenic pathways).
Vitamin D is required for the absorption of calcium via the intestines and assists calcium with blood coagulation and blood pressure regulation. Research has shown that calcium and vitamin D can be preventative against certain forms of cancer.
