Calcium and magnesium are essential for maintenance of a healthy skeletal system. The minerals are also essential for muscle contraction in the heart and body and for nerve transmission. ϯ Below you will find knowledge and information to help you learn how adding a food-based calcium and magnesium supplement to your diet may support your healthy lifestyle.

Food-Based Calcium & Magnesium
Food-based vitamins are thought to provide a greater value in nutrition due to the presence of enzymes, flavonoids and other micronutrients that cannot be found in a simple supplement. Obtaining minerals such as calcium and magnesium, along with Vitamin D, through the diet would be ideal, but the average American diet is far from ideal as many people have limited foods high in these nutrients from their diets due to caloric content. The combination of calcium and magnesium, in addition to individual health benefits, has been used to prevent nighttime disturbances like restless leg syndrome and nightmares. ϯ
Why This Formula?
aVivoPur Food-Based Calcium & Magnesium provides the most beneficial balance of the minerals in a 1:1 formulation. We have also included Vitamin D3, essential for its synergistic activity with Calcium in promoting bone health. Our supplement, like all of our products contains only ingredients sourced from nature. The green food base provides amino acids, enzymes and other phytonutrients not found in most mineral supplements. ϯ
Most of our body’s calcium supply is housed in the bone structure. As we age and if our diets are filled with high-acid foods and phosphates, much of the calcium leaves our bones to be used in vital processes. Calcium is responsible for maintaining the rigidity and strength of bone, but also important in muscle and nerve signal transmission. Low calcium levels are often found in those with cancer and calcium supplements are thought to protect against cardiac disease and cancer. Calcium is mainly found in dairy products although many vegetables can also be a source. ϯ
Most people do not pay enough attention to magnesium which is unfortunate as the mineral is essential for proper muscle and nerve transmission, helps to protect against muscle cramping, seizures, restless leg syndrome and other muscle / nerve disorders. Many Americans are deficient in magnesium but it can be found in leafy greens, nuts, seeds, whole grains, certain fruits, and dark chocolate. ϯ
About Vitamin D3
Vitamin D3, one of the active forms of Vitamin D, is known as the “sunshine vitamin”. It can be manufactured in the skin which has been exposed to direct sunlight. Unfortunately, most Americans do not spend any significant time in the sun due to fears of cancer; consequently our incidence of vitamin d deficiency has risen dramatically. Vitamin D3 is needed for many body processes including bone formation, skin structure, heart and blood vessel functioning, and immune, thyroid, and lung function. ϯ
