Calcium may be the most clinically studied of all the minerals. It is by far the most prevalent mineral in the human body with 99% of it found in bones and teeth, and the remaining 1% found in blood and soft tissue.* An adequate intake of calcium is necessary for maintaining bone density.* In fact, adequate calcium throughout life, as part of a well-balanced diet, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis. In addition, calcium is also necessary for nerve impulse transmission, muscle contraction, relaxation and constriction of blood vessels, and secretion of hormones.*
Magnesium is an essential mineral with multiple functions in the human body. This includes the structural role it plays with bone and cell membrane formation.* It is needed to metabolize carbohydrates and fats in the production of energy.* Magnesium is also required for transporting potassium and calcium across cell membranes.* The conduction of nerve impulses, muscle contraction, normal heart rhythm and cell signaling, are also all magnesium-dependent activities.* In addition, magnesium supports healthy blood pressure already within normal ranges.*
Zinc is a nutritionally essential mineral needed for structural, and regulatory functions in the body.* Over 300 different enzymes depend on zinc for their ability to perform their important biological functions.* Adequate zinc intake is important for maintaining healthy bone density.*
