Calcium (MCHA) with Magnesium -
Calcium microcrystalline hydroxyapatite combined with magnesium citrate provides dual support for bone mineral composition and heart health.
What Is It?
Calcium microcrystalline hydroxyapatite (MCHA) is a
calcium compound, containing minerals in their natural
ratios, as well as residues of bone matrix, proteins, and
glycosaminoglycans. Magnesium citrate provides
additional support for bone and cardiovascular health
in a highly bioavailable fully chelated form.*
Uses For Calcium (MCHA) with Magnesium
Bone: Multiple randomized, double-blind, placebo
controlled studies have reported statistically significant
positive results using calcium supplementation to help
reduce the risk of osteoporosis for both women and
men.† Magnesium, like calcium, is an essential bone
matrix mineral that promotes healthy bone metabolism.
Supplementation with calcium and magnesium provides
synergistic support for bone health.*
†Risk factors for osteoporosis include sex, race, age and
inadequate calcium intake. Populations at highest risk for
osteoporosis include Caucasian, Asian, and postmenopausal
women, and elderly women and men. Adequate
calcium intake throughout life is linked to a reduced
risk of osteoporosis, as calcium helps to optimize peak
bone mass during adolescence and early adulthood
in conjunction with exercise and healthy diet. Calcium
intake greater than 2,000 mg per day has no further known
benefit to bone health.*
Cardiovascular: Magnesium supports cardiovascular
health by helping to maintain healthy levels of cellular
and plasma electrolytes, including calcium and
potassium. Additionally, calcium and magnesium may
help to promote healthy lipid metabolism and support
healthy receptor function.*
What Is The Source?
Pure Encapsulations calcium microcrystalline hydroxyapatite
is obtained from pasture-fed, pesticide-free bovine
