  • 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.

    Helped with what I got it for.

    I am a person who loves lemon, so I love the taste of the drink. If it's too strong for someone, they can just use more water. It's so easy, you just put the scoop in and wait for it to dissolve - you don't even need to mix! (Unless you wait too long to drink it and the particles settle) I got Cal-Mag Citrate by Thorne Research to help with constipation due to pregnancy, which my midwife said was okay. The only reason I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is because it worked almost too well, if you know what I mean. It's a bit much, but it does the trick and I'm going to keep using it because it's better than the alternative. ;-)


    Pros

      Taste Effect!

    Cons

      Nothing =)

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Easy and delicious!

    I found Cal Mag Citrate by Thorne Research an easy way to take calcium, since I don't like swallowing pills. And to top it off, it tastes really good, making it even easier to remember to take it just before bedtime.


    Pros

      Ease of ingestion, taste, price!

    Cons

      Nothing.

    Calcium not the best absorbed

    I bought Cal-Mag Citrate by Thorne Research based on research saying the Ca in this product was readily absorbed. Also liked that the magnesium was included. I trust Thorne products, as their Multivitamin MediPro formula is one of the best. I went to my compounding pharmacy yesterday that specializes in holistic, naturopathic items and was told that Bone Builder is a plant based calcium that is best absorbed by the body. I will buy that when this runs out. Was also told that Magnesium taurate and orotate is better absorbed into the blood than the magnesium in Cal-Mag Citrate.


    Pros

      Not a bad product, as Thorne is a well established trusted brand.

    Cons

      VERY sour taste. Not the most bio available forms of these minerals.

    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!
