Calcium and Magnesium are both macrominerals which play indispensable roles in a wide variety of metabolic functions in the human body. While low intakes affect all populations, greater significance is seen in post-menopausal women and the elderly. Additionally, the dietary requirement for young children and adolescent girls is elevated, due to their increased requirement for skeletal growth and to maximise bone health. Lastly, diuretics, certain antibiotics, antacids, anticoagulants, corticosteroids, statins, and oral contraceptives may all lower calcium and/or magnesium status. 99% of the body’s supply of calcium can be located in skeletal tissues such as bone and teeth, while the remaining 1% is found in blood, muscle, and interstitial fluids. Similarly, 60-65% of magnesium is located in bone, ~27% is intramuscular, and ~7% is found in other cell types and bodily fluids. Vitamin C is an essential nutrient, and is required for a wide range of essential metabolic reactions. As the antioxidant ascorbate, it protects the body against oxidative stress, acts as a detoxifier, and is a vital component in the function of the immune system. Powder supplies 400 mg of elemental calcium, 200 mg of elemental magnesium, and 180 mg of vitamin C per serving. The inclusion of vitamin C to the formulation provides the added benefits of a key antioxidant, as well as enhanced calcium availability. Powder is easy to administer to children, adolescents, and seniors alike, by adding it to water or juice.
