You’ve probably heard of magnesium, but what exactly is it all about? Magnesium is an important mineral that is involved in over 300 biochemical reactions in the body, from helping to support the health of bones and teeth, to everyday muscle function and energy production1.

What role does magnesium play in the body?

    • Bone and teeth development: Magnesium contributes significantly to the development of bones and teeth, working in harmony with calcium and vitamin D to build bones and maintain skeletal health1.

    • Muscle Function: Magnesium plays a crucial role in transmitting nerve signals and regulating muscle contractions1.

Why Supplement with Magnesium?

Health Canada’s Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for adults is 310-420 mg of magnesium each day2. This is the average intake most people need to avoid deficiencies, but the actual amount you need will vary depending on your age, sex, diet, and lifestyle2,3. Magnesium is found in various foods like leafy greens, nuts, seeds, and whole grains, but dietary intake alone may not always suffice3, so this is where supplementation can come in handy!

Nature’s Way Calcium & Magnesium is formulated in a 2:1 Calcium to Magnesium ratio in a great tasting formula! It also contains bone-friendly ingredients like Collagen, Manganese, Boron and Vitamin D3.
