Suggested Use: 1 scoop 1-2 times per day, in divided doses, with meals, mixed with 8 oz water
Cal/Mag w/Cofactors (powder) -
Highly absorbable form of calcium; combined with magnesium, vitamin D, boron, silica and xylitol
What Is It?
Cal/Mag w/Cofactors (powder) provides key nutrients to
promote calcium utilization and enhance healthy bone
mineralization. This unique formula combines highly
bioavailable forms of calcium, magnesium, vitamin D,
silica, boron and xylitol in a lemon-lime flavored powder
for convenient dosing.*
Uses For Cal/Mag w/Cofactors (powder)
Bone Health: Randomized, double blind, placebocontrolled
studies have reported statistically significant
benefits of calcium supplementation for bone health.
Magnesium, like calcium, is an essential bone matrix
mineral that promotes healthy bone metabolism. A trial
involving 2,038 older individuals indicated that higher
intakes of magnesium were positively associated with
bone mineralization for certain individuals. Vitamin D
promotes intestinal calcium and phosphorous absorption
and reduces urinary calcium loss, essential mechanisms
for maintaining healthy calcium levels in the body and for
healthy bone composition. A recent 7-year study involving
36,282 women indicated that combined supplementation
of calcium and vitamin D promoted healthy hip bones.
Boron supports calcium, phosphorous, magnesium
and vitamin D metabolism and plays a role in reducing
urinary calcium and magnesium excretion. In addition,
it strengthens the connective structure in bone matrix.
Silica is a component of connective tissue and studies have
suggested that it supports bone and collagen formation. A
cross-sectional study involving 2,847 people suggests that
optimal silicon intake is positively related to bone mineral
health, particularly for cortical bone. Research suggests
xylitol may help facilitate intestinal absorption and
retention of calcium, as well as promote healthy bone
structure and strength.*
What Is The Source?
Calcium, magnesium and boron are derived from the
lime of rock. Citrate is derived from corn dextrose
fermentation. Vitamin D3 is derived from lanolin. Xylitol
is derived from corn cob and purified to be free of corn
protein. Silica is derived from bamboo stem (bambusa
vulgaris) extract. Natural flavor is derived from lemon and
lime. Lo han (momordica grosvenori) extract is derived
from the fruit.
