What is Cal/Mag/Zinc Complex with Vitamin D? Cal/Mag/Zinc Complex with Vitamin D is a daily supplement designed to support bone health, cardiovascular health, nerve signaling, and muscle function. Vitamin D-3 and zinc have been included to maximize the efficiency of calcium absorption and utilization throughout the body. How does Cal/Mag/Zinc Complex with Vitamin D Work? Calcium is required for the critical metabolic functions of vascular contraction and vasodilation, muscle function, nerve transmission, intracellular signaling, and hormonal secretion. Calcium is also necessary for maintaining bone strength (as measured by bone mineral density; BMD). When calcium intake is inadequate, the body starts to break down existing bone to maintain calcium levels in the blood. Osteoporosis occurs when bone is being broken down at a faster rate than it is rebuilt, resulting in decreased BMD . Magnesium is involved in over 300 biochemical reactions in the body, including protein synthesis, muscle and nerve function, blood glucose control, and blood pressure regulation. It contributes to the maintenance of a normal heartbeat and can help to reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease . Magnesium is essential for the absorption of calcium, formation of new bone, and impacts the activity of parathyroid hormone (a regulator of calcium homeostasis) . Sixty percent of the body’s magnesium is stored in bone. Magnesium deficiency can result in reduced BMD as bone will also be broken down to release stored magnesium for other biological functions. Zinc has been demonstrated to stimulate bone formation and mineralization and to inhibit bone resorption (breakdown) . Zinc appears to have protective effects on cardiovascular health. Zinc deficiency has been linked to many forms of heart disease, and replenishing zinc has been shown to improve cardiac function . Vitamin D-3 stimulates the absorption of calcium from the gut. Although vitamin D can be made in the body naturally in response to sunlight, modern indoor lifestyles and awareness of the sun’s effects on skin health have led to low serum vitamin D levels becoming quite common. Vitamin D status is also related to BMD, and supplementation can prevent some bone turnover . What are the Suggested Uses for Cal/Mag/Zinc Complex with Vitamin D?
- Support bone health by providing a variety of vitamins and minerals that contribute to the maintenance of healthy bone mineral density.
- Formula components also support cardiovascular health, nerve signaling, and muscle function.
- Supplemental vitamin D-3 for those with low serum levels can also help to improve calcium and BMD status.
