  • 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.

    Good tasting in sweet juice!

    First time user wanting an easy to take form (not pills); Cal Mag Citrate by Thorne Research mixes readily in liquid. I use fruit juice which has no added sugar and it's very palatable. Good price too!


    Pros

      Ease of use, purity of product.

    Cons

      Nothing to dislike. Thorne is a reliable brand.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Great for night time calf cramps!

    I get really bad night calf cramps. All I have to do is put one scoop of Cal Mag Citrate by Thorne Research into water and drink it down. I can actually feel the calf relax within 30 seconds of drinking it. I have suffered with this condition for many years and the doctor can not figure out what causes it. But this stuff works!

    Delicious

    I bought Cal-Mag Citrate by Thorne Research based on reviews here. Let me tell my own experience. I add it to 1/2 cup of pomegranate juice and mix it with 1/2 cup of water. Fizzy drink which I find just a pleasure to drink. Did not like much with plain water though.


    Pros

      Fizzy

    Cons

    Good product!

    I've just used Cal-Mag Citrate by Thorne Research. It dissolves easily in water. If you look for the high dose of Mag-Cal then you have to use A LOT of Cal-Mag Citrate to achieve your goal. I would not use Cal-Mag Citrate again since I need higher dosage in smaller quantity.


    Pros

      Dissolve easily.

    Cons

      Need a lot of powder to achieve my daily dosage.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Best Product I Have Found

    Recommended by my Naturopath. I believe the effervescent powder is better absorbed by the body than capsules. I take this twice a day in half a cup of water. I usually mix my probiotic powder right in with it. I enjoy the taste and don't mind the fizziness.
