Benefits: Nourishes the bones Stimulates bone growth Strengthens teeth Improved absorption Calcium and magnesium are minerals that are very important for good health. They are vital for the bones, teeth, as well as for the health of the muscles and the nervous system. The recommended ratio is 2 to 1. Zinc, essential element for the overall health, is a constructive component of all bodily tissues and secretions. It is to be found in high quantities in eye retina, liver, kidneys, reproductive fluids and in men’s prostate gland. It actually plays a part in all biochemical mechanisms and physiological processes. Researches show that zinc is vital for bone health as it is necessary for supporting good bone density. One of the first symptoms of zinc deficiency is the loss of sense of taste and smell. The human body does not produce this element and this is why it has to be taken from outside sources. Vitamin D helps the body to absorb calcium from the intestines. This particular absorption is very important for the health of the bones and stimulates their mineralization. Without this vitamin, the bones may become thin, breakable and soft or lose form. In addition, this product contains betaine HCl and glutamic acid HCl. Their role is to support a maximum level the absorption of calcium, magnesium, and zinc. This is of vital importance because the hydrochloric acid levels usually decrease with age.
