A study released in the June 2012 issue of the journal Heart, concluded that taking too much calcium, taking calcium supplements alone or taking calcium supplements that were not balanced with other important nutrients, could result in an adverse health condition. These researchers demonstrated that some of the calcium was not being deposited into your bones, but instead was being deposited into your arteries. Unfortunately, however, 80 percent of adults and 40 percent of children are still deficient in calcium, which is an essential nutrient for our health.
So, how can you supplement calcium safely? Cutting-edge research done by the medical and scientific staff at ARIIX has shown that calcium needs to be supplemented with magnesium at a 1:1 ratio. Since the average person is receiving around 700 to 800 mg of calcium from their diet, supplementing with 400 to 600 mg of calcium, balanced with magnesium is more than adequate for the average individual. It is also critical that the calcium and magnesium in your supplement is highly absorbable. Therefore, you need to avoid calcium and magnesium supplements that contain the poorly absorbed calcium carbonate and magnesium oxide. Magnical-D also contains 2,000 IU of vitamin D3, which is important to begin absorbing calcium. Magnical-D also contains vitamin K2 that allows the calcium to be deposited into the bone and blocks it from being deposited into your arteries. Unfortunately, vitamin K1 does not accomplish this key goal.
