Cal-Mag Citrate by Thorne Research is an effervescent powder form of calcium-magnesium that is easy to consume. The powder reacts when it has been comined with water to result in citrate‚ gylcinate and ascorbate minerals that are well-absorbed by the body. The powder version was designed to provide more calcium to the body than one would get from a capsule or tablet. Cal-Mag Citrate provides a convenient way for you to supplement with high amounts of calcium and magnesium. Thorne Research also added vitamin C to this mineral supplement‚ giving it added antioxidant benefits.

Because citric acid is effervescent‚ it heightens the bioavailability of citrate mineral chelates. This mineral and vitamin product provides 200 milligrams of magnesium along with 500 milligrams of calcium per scoop. Thorne devised it this way because this ratio is especially beneficial for those who require higher levels of calcium‚ but cannot tolerate equal amounts of magnesium. Magnesium has been known to have laxative-like qualities‚ which make it difficult for some to use as a supplement. The single-serving scoop also offers 500 milligrams of vitamin C and 500 milligrams of glycline‚ a non-essential amino acid.

How to Use Cal-Mag by Thorne Research

Place the desired amount of powder into a glass with a small amount of water. Let it sit for a moment‚ so it can effervesce. Once it stops bubbling‚ consume the solution directly‚ or mix it with your favorite fruit juice. This will get you a glass that is chock-full of calcium and magnesium chelates that include citrates‚ glycinates and ascorbates.

The Importance of Calcium and Magnesium

Both calcium and magnesium are essential for your body to function properly. In fact‚ anthropological evidence suggests that early humans consumed vast amounts of calcium until the early days of agriculture‚ which occurred about 10‚000 years ago. Today‚ our calcium intake is estimated at about one-quarter to one-third the intake of our evolutionary ancestors‚ which could indicate that we are not consuming enough calcium through our diets. Recently‚ researchers analyzed many previously conducted studies on calcium and bone mass to determine what our optimal intake should really be. The conclusion that researchers came to was that 500 to 1‚500 milligrams of well-absorbed calcium can be taken daily to promote healthy bone mass in young adults‚ adolescents‚ postmenopausal women and older men.

You can find magnesium in every single cell of the body. It plays a role in more than 300 enzymatic processes and is essential for energy production. Your body needs magnesium to maintain a healthy bone density‚ normal heart rhythm and pulmonary function‚ and maintain normal blood glucose levels. Magnesium is also involved in nerve conduction‚ conversion of pyridoxine to an active form of vitamin B6 (peridoxal 5’-phosphate)‚ muscle contraction‚ energy production and methyl-group transfer.

Ratio of Calcium and Magnesium

Not only is it crucial to get enough calcium and magnesium daily‚ it is also important to get them both in an adequate ratio. Experts do not agree on the exact ratio necessary‚ but many support a 2 to 1 ratio (being two times calcium than magnesium)‚ while others recommend a 1 to 1 ratio.

I feel much better supplementing magnesium: no cramps, much calmer, etc... I've read a lot about the benefits of adding magnesium to the regular diet and decided to do it. No regrets. I like that vit C and calcium are included in the formula. Thorne Research is known for good quality products.

Great for Leg craps
January 20, 2014
I suffer from night leg craps. I have had them since I was a child. When I found this product I was so glad. When I get them I take a scoop of the Cal Mag powder in a glass of water and it relaxes the leg muscles right away and within 5 min I can go back to sleep without worrying about another cramp.

I really liked Cal-Mag Citrate. Easy to take, dissolves quickly, tastes pretty good, and helps me sleep really well when I take it at bed time. The only thing I didn't like was the jar doesn't last very long.

No pushy salespeople
August 1, 2013
I was taking another product for a long time. Then was told I could not buy only one can at a time. New rules. So I checked for another product that I could try and it is Cal-Mag Citrate (Effervescent Powder). I learned that it was also a better product from Thorne research. It's easy to use and I just add water and some juice and get a great tasting drink. Cal-Mag Citrate (Effervescent Powder) helps me with my osteoperosis and sleeping.
Pros:
I don't have to wait for hot water I use cold water and put juice in it. I like the price and no shipping added. I like that I can buy 1 can at a time. I like that I get it in just a few days.
Cons:
Sometimes the powder is not dissolved and its sits on the bottom of the cup. But I stir it up before I take the last few sips and that helps. Other thsn that it's all good.

A cure for cramps.
July 14, 2013
I get cramps in my sartorius muscle, the long muscle on the inside of the thigh. If I have worked too hard or been sweating a lot, I take a scoop of Cal-Mag Citrate in some water and fruit juice. Usually, that is good enough. But sometimes I still get the leg cramps in my sleep and they wake me right up. Big time. I'll hobble to the kitchen as fast as I can and drink another scoop of Cal-Mag Citrate in water and fruit juice. Within a few minutes the cramp is gone. Now, I try to remember to take the 'magic elixir' right before going to bed if I think there is even a chance of a cramp. I have recommended Cal-Mag Citrate to friends and they have also had good results. I swear by this stuff.

Osteoporosis be Gone!
July 9, 2013
I am taking Cal-Mag Citrate with advice from my Nature-O- Path as preventive maintenance for Osteoporosis. A side benefit, Cal-Mag Citrate helps me sleep at night. Its fizzy, which is fun. Its a bit tart, I like it but i also like lemon. Stir a bit as the Cal-Mag Citrate settles while you are drinking.
Pros:
Sleep aid - Calcium Osteoporosis preventive

quality, balanced proportions
December 10, 2012
My naturopathic physician advised Cal-Mag Citrate (Effervescent Powder) to help with stress, sleep, constipation and osteopenia. I can say it helps with the first three. I'll have to wait for bone scan regarding the osteopenia. I take it in the evening before bed, in order to benefit most from the relaxation effect of the magnesium. I like it better than Natural Calm -- it takes a smaller portion, but it's not sweet, so you may want to add stevia. Thorne products are excellent quality, in my experience.

For sleep and sore muscles
November 26, 2012
My husband and I love our magnesium powder to help wind down before bed and to help with sore muscles. My naturopath recommended this brand specifically, and we've been using it about three years. It has a very tart flavor, which I like. I can't stand the overly sweet magnesium powders. Cal-Mag Citrate (Effervescent Powder) doesn't have any sweeteners in it, but you could add a couple drops of stevia if you have trouble with the tartness.

Good for Osteoporosis!
February 15, 2012
A friend of mine turned me on to Cal-Mag Citrate (Effervescent Powder). She'd had severe osteoporosis and her now ex-doctor had her on Fossamax, which is very hard on your body. When her jaw started to deteriorate, she switched doctors and the new doctor told her about Thorne's calcium-magnesium citrate. After a year, her osteoporosis was gone and her bone density scans showed that her bones were healthy again.
Pros:
Good product, effective
Cons:
Have to order it online

Tastes like cabonated pee
January 20, 2012
If you want to know what it's like to drink a baking soda volcano Cal-Mag Citrate (Effervescent Powder) is the stuff for you. While I don't doubt the quality of Cal-Mag Citrate (Effervescent Powder) I just can't stand the taste. I prefer using pure encapsulations cal/mag with cofactors. You spend a little more but it has a milder, sweet taste. Plus it includes vitamin D3.
Pros:
High quality Powder form Highly absorbable
Cons:

A Good nite's sleep
May 2, 2011
The tingling/burning sensation associated w/ diabetic neuropathy in my feet had been compromising quality sleep for months and I had found no relief from 'traditional' medicines. My wife's nutritionist recommended Cal-Mag Citrate (effervescent powder): it works like a charm. Gone are the nite tingling/burning sensations in my feet and I now sleep like a bear in hibernation.
Pros:
It works!!!!!!!!
Cons:
This is not really a dislike, but I do dream like crazy, something I was prevented from doing since I was unable to get into REM sleep BEFORE taking Cal-Mag citrate.

Cal Mag Citrate

My chiropractow recommeded this to me. I had osteopenia. Now my dexa scans are ok. I also take a high dose of vitamin D. I like this product because it is effervescent and doesn't have to be mixed. It is much faster to take and not like a pill that may not absorb as easily.

My naturopath gave me this product to try originally, and when I ran out I found it online. I take all my Cal-Mag by supplement, because there's no dairy in my diet. When I added this product at bedtime I stopped having muscle cramps in my sleep. Now I'm giving it to my adult son also.
Pros:

This really does make a difference!
December 15, 2010
This was recommended for me several years ago after consulting a nutritionist during my breast cancer treatment. I took it, but not faithfully because it was all I could do to drink it when I mixed it with water. THEN, I found that when I mix it with my orange juice it's not only "not bad"... it's Really good!! And I feel better in general now that it is honestly an every morning supplement for me,and I look forward to starting my day with it!!
Pros:
The effervessance in the juice, the way I can feel an overall difference in the delivery of it as opposed to taking capsules.
Cons:
Nothing
