1) What is Cal & Mag Assist?

Cal & Mag Assist features two of the most important minerals: Magnesium and Calcium. Often found together due to their inter-connection, the minerals are essential for several body functions and processes.Calcium, for instance, is vital to the health and strength of bones and teeth. In addition, it has often been touted for weight management properties and capacity of alleviating or soothing a number of PMS associated symptoms. Calcium deficiencies may have serious consequences depending on the duration and severity of the depletion. Usually, Calcium is lost through sweat, urine, nails, and hair, every day. New supplies must hence be ensured, or the body will start using the supplies located in the bones and teeth leading to low bone density or tooth decay to briefly mention a couple of the harm done by a deficiency.

Magnesium is important to such conditions that affect the heart and the muscles, insomnia or inability to rest, concentration problems, diabetes patients, and asthma or fibromyalgia patients. Adult doses revolve around the value of 400 mg of Magnesium daily, and a healthy balanced diet is able to ensure that. Dietary sources include rice, bran, seeds, and pumpkin seeds.

Cal & Mag Assist is a nutritional supplement based on a blend of two of the most important minerals: Calcium and Magnesium. One tablet contains approximately 100% from the daily requirements of either of these two nutrients. In addition, the powder form makes it easy to use by even sensitive categories of patients, such as the elderly. The formula is very likely to work as advertised.

My doctor recommended a calcium supplement for me, because I am prone to developing osteoporosis. Calcium and Magnesium is the perfect combination as far as research evidence goes.


Great product! I fully trust the manufacturer, because I’ve used a number of other products from Future Health.
